Havana—Brooklyn Mack, first dancer with the Washington Ballet said that after his performance in Havana he was so moved that he will come back to the island.
Born in South Carolina, Mack waved good-bye to the Cuban International Ballet Festival after making a memorable performance along outstanding Cuban ballerina Viengsay Valdes, who again showed her best qualities on the stage despite having a high fever, while Mack also suffered from a lesion, something the audience never knew.
Mack and Valdes also wrote a chapter in the history of the festival with their Don Quixote Pas de Deux last Octobre 31 at Havana´s Karl Marx Theater.
The US-Cuban dancing pair was considered the strongest at the current International Ballet Festival in Havana, which is being contested by representatives of 28 nations.
