Dance.

From the Spaniards’ arrival, a wide range of varied dances began to take possession of life on the Isthmus. Dancing, which has been wisely called the most humane of all arts, originally had religious roots. The so-called ballet has shown ups and downs, but the beauty of it is that it has prevailed over the years.

The National School of Dance opened its doors in 1948 and one person, a non-native one, worked hard for the development and dissemination of dancing. It was the English woman Margot Fonteyn, the country’s most famous dancer, who died in Panama on 21 February 1991. Her death left an empty space that will be hard to fill.
