In Cuba, ballet dancers are as esteemed as pop stars or pro athletes are in America, often earning more money than doctors. The popularity of ballet in Cuba was hard-earned by the efforts of prima ballerina Alicia Alonso, who founded the Cuban National Ballet and built it into a cultural asset that provides entertainment for the Cuban people and stable careers for aspiring dancers. In a first-ever cultural exchange between the Cuban National Ballet and The Ruth Page School of Dance, the two schools will unite for a performance that explores the differences in dance training and methodology in the U.S. and Cuba. The program includes distinctly Cuban performances as well as classic ballet pieces and a showcase of young artists from both companies. Please see the full event description for program details.
