“With Elsa Freitas, a performer of excellence and also one of the founding partners of Dançando com a Diferença, we lived unique moments. We grew, learned, fought, suffered and also had moments of immense fun. ‘I want to be a famous and internationally recognized dancer ‘, he repeatedly shouted in Beautiful People (by Rui Horta/O Espaço Do Tempo). Thank you Elsa”, writes the association’s promoter.
