Danza Voluminosa (Voluminous Dance) is a Cuban dance academy, founded in 1996 by Havana-based dancer and choreographer Juan Miguel Mas. It’s troupe mainly consists of voluptuous and enchanting women, who share a passion, and a figure shape: voluminosa. Their philosophy advocates: ‘achieving self-esteem for the obese, valuing these people, and helping them demonstrate that they also can achieve beautiful, interesting things’ .

We applaud this aced initiative that welcomes and celebrates big women, proving that being big is no reason not to dance.
