ARTIST STATEMENT"Cuban Contemporary is a hybrid of North American Modern technique, European ballet, African traditions and popular influences. It is a unique blend – like our nation itself. The long isolation and the political impact on culture lead to very creative forms of art, with dance as its major expression. We are masters of improvisation, using our bodies, all we have, to express ourselves. A strong emphasis lies on the technical skills, defined body lines and rhythmic complexity. Cuban Contemporary offers a lot to explore for every dancer!"
