I saw the Colombian Orchid Ballet performed in Oklahoma during the 10th Colombian Cultural Night and I was extremely pleased to see the level of professionalism, energy and passion each member projected! It was without a doubt the highlight of the night and I cannot wait to see them again! Congratulation for transmitting what Colombia is all about! People, love, energy!

Thank you Edwin for your comments. We are honored that you see the Colombian Orchid Ballet as a source of joy, love, energy and great souls! We also believe that we were very blessed to be part of an event like the Colombian Night, filled with amazing Colombians like you and all the COLSA members in Norman, Oklahoma! Looking forward to collaborate for Smile Colombia projects and events.

It was my exposure to the Colombian community in Houston that made me fall in love with the culture and the country itself (so much so that I have been living in Bogotá for almost a year now). I was priveledged to be able to attend various performances by these talented individuals and believe that they are a great ambassadors for their country.

Colombia faces many challenges as a country and as a society. Overcoming those challenges will not be an easy process. I admire Felipe and his organization for showing a different side of Colombia. He inspires Colombians and non colombians thru his performances and projects.

I watched the ballet perform recently a the Minuto de Dios charity dinner and was amazed by their performance. Not only is the group talented, they really do give back to the community. Houston is fortunate to be the home of the Colombian Orchid Ballet. Plus Colombians living in Houston appreciate the young talented dancers representing their home country.

In a word: Wonderful! The beauty of their presentation is only rivaled by their friendliness and professionalism.
In addition to providing our event with an excellent performance, the group truly created a cultural experience. Explanations on the origins and historical context of the dances and music were interesting and concise. They served to enhance our appreciation and pique our interest.

The Colombian Orchid Ballet did a great job at the University of Oklahoma's Colombian Student Association Cultural Night on March 12, 2011. The professionalism, passion and energy of the dancers and director helped celebrate the 10th anniversary of COLSA in Norman, OK. It was a magical night! These eight dancers volunteer their time, drove all the way from Houston and inspired the public.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way the Colombian Orchid Ballet is able to educate and inspire through dance; they use dance as a social medium to teach about different cultures help other organizations to believe in themselves and inspire them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make a satellite branch at the University of OKlahoma.

Thank you Yoana for your comment. We were very honored by being part of the performing artist at COLSA's 10th anniversary event in Norman, Oklahoma. We felt very happy to move people's hearts through our performance, but more importantly to be able to share the stage with amazing people like you guys, who have dedicated themselves to promote the Colombian spirit for a decade. We look forward for your next event!

The Colombian Orchid Ballet performed at our annual Gala, Banquete del Millon Houston 2011 and exceeded my expectations. I was hoping for people to feel in contact with their country when they heard the music and saw the performance, but I found more than that. While their performance I saw people with tears of joy, transported to their country. Very professional. Very Colombian. Very giving.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the people who support our organization, Minuto de Dios. They are really touched by their work

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes

Thank you Claudia for your comment. We are very happy to be able to participate in events like the Minuto de Dios, so we can inspire people not only Colombians, but any person to do something for their community. Bringing tears of joy to the audience is something that makes us believe that we were successful in our mission to make the people ride with us into a journey of joy and most importantly of going back to their home country and go back in time and feel home!
