Cuban National Ballet celebrates International Dance Day in Spain

Madrid, Apr 29 (Prensa Latina) An intense tour through Spain, with future performances in Portugal, stands out on Monday in the National Ballet of Cuba (BNC), which celebrates International Dance Day.

In a statement sent to Prensa Latina, BNC first dancer and director Viengsay Valdés pointed out that the date is significant for all actors and admirers of this discipline.

Established in 1982 by the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO) in honor of French dancer Jean-Georges Noverre, considered the creator of modern ballet, the day is also a reason for great performances in Spain, especially flamenco.

“The best way to celebrate this day is, precisely, doing what we love most: dance, and these days we are doing it for one of our most loyal audiences, the Spanish public,” Valdés said.

“These are days of many travels, classes, rehearsals, and performances, but also many satisfactions, because every success of the National Ballet of Cuba is a triumph of Cuban culture. And that makes us proud,” she stressed.

The BNC director took the opportunity to congratulate dancers, choreographers, teachers, rehearsers, technicians, musicians, directors, designers, students, make-up artists, researchers, and scholars.

In the next few days, the BNC will perform, in Terrasa, San Cugat, and Manresa, in Catalonia, and after moving to Lisbon, where it will perform twice: on May 10 and 11, before returning to Spain.
