Ballet Nacional De Cuba
One of the most prestigious dance companies in the world, Cuban National Ballet is renowned for its unparalleled technique, taking classic Western ballets and invigorating them with the vivid passion at the heart of Cuba. 
Artistic Director Alicia Alonso founded the Company in 1948 and has been an inspiration and guide in shaping new generations of Cuban dancers, many of which are now principal dancers with Companies such American Dance Theatre, San Francisco Ballet, and most famously, Carlos Acosta, Principal at The Royal Ballet and ‘Best Male Dancer’ in last year’s National Dance Awards. 
On this rare visit to London, the Company will perform two programmes; Alonso’s full length version of the classic Romantic ballet Giselle; and a mixed bill, Magia de la Danza, which brings together extracts from the Company’s most famous ballets including The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
