The U.S. Embassy Montevideo sponsored the New York based modern dance troupe, Full Fat Dance, to perform at an international dance festival in Montevideo. The Festival Montevideo Sitiada took place November 11-21, 2005.

For this festival, Full Fat Dance artistic directors Jeremy Nelson and Luis Lara Malvacias presented works for 7 dancers, culminating their visit with a performance at Montevideo's Teatro Sodre on November 18, receiving excellent reviews. Uruguayan audiences are very discriminating and recognize only first-rate artistic presentations.

Besides this company from the United States, dance ensembles from many countries, including Venezuela, Spain, France, Austria, Slovenia, Kenya, and Nigeria made appearances at the festival. While in Montevideo, Nelson and Lara Malvacias conducted a three-day workshop for dancers from studios and schools throughout Uruguay. These young dancers had nothing but praise for the duo's innovative training methods.
