One Cuban Dance Troupe Spreads Its Message Of Body Positivity By Celebrating Its 20th Anniversary

Size doesn't matter.

For 20 years, Danza Voluminous — or Voluminous Dance — has been spreading a message of body positivity throughout Cuba.

The dance group is made up of women and men who are considered overweight, but who haven't let their shape or size stop them from embracing their love of dance.

"I can tell you from experience. One thinks: 'Fat people can't do this. Fat people can't do that.' And fat people can," says actor and dancer Evaristo Valenti. "Because, in fact, there are fat people who are married. They are athletes. They are actors. They are dancers."
