Learning in Motion is a methodology that connects theater-dancing-body-poverty-vulnerability, Social Transformation & Youth Empowerment. Through dancing, movement and voice, participants develop creative processes on which they involve their personal experiences and create narratives that we call vivid dramatic writings. With these experiences, teenagers and young adults are getting close to their backgrounds and lives to reach a recognition of themselves here and now and the purpose in their life projects.

Youth Entrepreneurship

Thanks to the partnership with StoryInc, an entrepreneurial action is taken; a journal called “Story Book” where our young members can record each step towards their business idea. Likewise, dancing classes are promoted for all kinds of audience our young members teach, who also lead pedagogical and cultural processes.

Theatrical plays

Christmas Present is a scenic proposal in which leaders and teenagers who are ahead in the process, make choreographies and participate preparing the final presentation. We are usually on stage in theater Hombre Mono and in Sutton Club.

Story Book

It is a consulting team specialized in business storytelling.

StoryInc is intended to guide organizations and their work teams in creating their own narrative so that it becomes a strategic asset.

Developing transformative narratives through:
1. Training
2. Education
3. Consultancy

That is why StoryInc believes that knowing how to tell stories is knowing how to use the bridge that connects memory with imagination.
Then, working with storytelling is a great work tool to: Strengthen brand identity and its value proposal, direct innovation processes, deploy strategic plans, implement endomarketing strategies, socialize change management processes, train high performance commercial teams, create a narrative of their own, among others.

Science or art and their use transcends learning methods to generate unforgettable emotional anchors. Archetypes, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, theater, cinema, literature and life itself are inexhaustible sources of stories that happen regularly to us and are worthy of telling to make them come to life.

That is why Fundación Función Esperanza in collaboration with StoryInc, develops the entrepreneurial initiative “Story Book”, in which their young members can record each step towards their business idea.


Making them realize their ideas do matter in their life projects and can come true.
