||PENIEL GUERRIER DANCE COMPANY
Saturday, July 31: HAITI 4:30 p.m. – Dance
Peniel Guerrier began his formal dance training in 1987. Hervé of HMaxi, the most prestigious teacher in Haiti, was impressed with his dancing and invited Peniel to study at his school. Peniel later danced with the National Dance Theatre of Haiti for 8 years and toured the world: Venezuela, Paris, Hungary, Japan, Montreal, Germany, Santo Domingo, and the U.S.
Peniel believes dance is a cultural element that reflects every country, region and society. His dream is to learn and master as many traditional dances of Haiti and Africa as time allows, and to represent Haitian culture worldwide.
