U.S.-Cuba News Brief: 10/18/2019

Dear Friends, 

In the wake of this week’s death of Cuban prima ballerina assoluta and founder of the National Ballet of Cuba, Alicia Alonso, CDA recognizes the dancer’s role in catapulting Cuban arts and culture to global acclaim and in fostering the warming of U.S.-Cuba relations. Alonso played a role in the founding of two major ballet companies in the Americas. Alonso’s influence in ballet spanned both the U.S. and Cuba, from her role as a founding member of the U.S.’s renowned American Ballet Theater (ABT) to her later founding of Cuba’s renowned National Ballet. Throughout her career, when relations between the U.S. and Cuba permitted, Alonso continued to return to the U.S. to perform and to accompany her company on tours. The National Ballet made its U.S. debut 41 years ago at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C., and has performed in cities from Florida to New York. In 2018, 40 years after its U.S. debut, the company returned to the Kennedy Center to perform on the tail end of the Center’s Artes de Cuba Festival
