Danza Voluminosa is a professional dance troupe founded by choreographer and dancer Juan Miguel Mas in 1996. The company is composed of dancers who gained weight, retired dancers – all kinds of artists said to be ‘good for nothing’. Mailín Daza, the company’s prima ballerina, weighs in at 130 kilos.
Today Danza Voluminosa consists of seven dancers (six women and one man) and director Juan Miguel Mas. The troupe has produced three full-length choreographies, 30 shorter works and has been the subject of a Canadian documentary (“Defying Gravity,” 2004).
