Gala de Danza: Cabo’s Most Dazzling Performance to Celebrate Five-Year Anniversary

In Los Cabos, Play by Suzanne Koch

On March 4, Gala de Danza will celebrate its five-year anniversary with one of the most spectacular and eye-catching performances. Taking place at the architecturally stunning Mar Adentro hotel in San Jose del Cabo, the program will take place on a custom-built stage specifically for the event. The stage will seamlessly join together the horizon with the mirror pools of the resort and will be viewable from hotel suites and VIP water lounges, making for a truly unique experience.

Designed by famed Mexican architect, Miguel Angel Aragonés, Mar Adentro is an aesthetically pleasing space unlike any other hotel. With clean lines, minimalist decor and bright white colors, it beautifully contrasts with the desert surroundings and blue waters. With the lack of “busyness,” the hotel stands as the perfect location for such a beautiful performance.
