Cuba’s Lizt Alfonso Dance Company will make on Thursday a second presentation at the auditorium of the Tijuana Cultural Center (Cecut) in Baja California, a tour that will end in Mexicali, the capital of this Mexican state, on October 2.

This performance was dedicated by Escobedo Productions and the Company to Margarita Robles, a pioneer of classical dance in Baja California and founder of the Gloria Campobello Dance School in 1963 and of the Mexico Northwest Ballet in 1982.
The program included choreographies such as Renacer, Vine por ti and Retahila, as well as emblematic works like Alas, by Lizt Alfonso, and Fuerza y Compas, also by the founder of the group, performed by the Cuban artists, the weekly Zeta weekly reported.
Also, the choreography Bailando, by Lizt Alfonso, named after the song that interpreted by Enrique Iglesias and Gente de Zona and Descemer Bueno, was staged.
