Holly travelled to Guatemala with the JUNTOS Collective to teach and perform in four different cities. In this video, Holly performs a solo from her own piece Ritmos Sin Limites at a center for HIV positive children in Antigua, Guatemala. 

alive, beautiful, untamed.

Guatemala, thank you, for sharing your dance with me. Your warm dusty clothes lines like rainbows peeled down to dry. Your children, staring with hungry light in their eyes at the dancers that invaded their hospitals like surgeons of the soul. Your windy van rides through the tumbling mountains of jungle with nothing but my ukulele and 6 girls singing about being in love with the world. The night you closed the street in the center of the second biggest city in the country and put up a stage under the stars for us to dance.
