dancers, 1

This was the highlight of the entire trip – the chance to watch performances of dancers from Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba, a highly regarded dance academy in Cuba.

I was going to write about the dances (a fusion of flamenco, ballet, Cuban rhythms, and other styles), the dancers (who attend academic and dance classes at the academy), or the founder (Lizt Alfonso, a highly regarded dancer and visionary). But nothing I can say will convey the passion, the precision, the dedication of the dancers. Or the passion and precision of the dances.

Ms. Alfonso spoke with our group after the performance and indicated the company would be touring internationally in 2024. You ought to try to catch a performance. (I mean – look at this video, and you’ll see what I mean.) (If you look at the video you’ll also see that my photo is a very, very poor capture of what I experienced.)
