"Swan Lake" by the National Ballet of Cuba will be presented in Shenzhen next week.

The National Ballet of Cuba is a classical ballet company based in Havana. Founded by the Cuban prima ballerina assoluta Alicia Alonso in 1948, it is recognized as one of the world's leading ballet companies. At the outset, the company followed romantic and classical traditions, even as it encouraged the work of choreographers who sought inspiration from national and contemporary trends.

Alonso has created a uniquely Cuban style of dance. Besides the improvement of the traditional repertoire, she fostered a strong choreographic movement with works that rank among the most significant achievements of contemporary choreography.

Earning worldwide acclaim, the ballet has performed in over 60 countries and received hundreds of international awards. Additionally, Cuban-trained dancers are now marquee names in top ballet companies throughout the world, including some of the very first dancers that attended the school, such as Ernesto Alvarez, Sadaise Arencibia, Elier Bourzac, and Joel Carreno.

Though elderly and nearly blind, Alonso is still at the helm of the National Ballet of Cuba. After giving her last performance in 1993 at the age of 72, Alonso continues to be the motivating force of Cuban ballet.
