Cuba's most popular dance company that is beloved around the world, Havana-based Dance Cuba has remained since its founding fifteen years ago under the inspired creative direction of dancer-choreographer Lizt Alfonso. The all-female company of 17 beautiful and technically superb dancers performs "with amazing unanimity" (New York Times) and with "sheer technical finesse" (Chicago Sun-Times). Accompanied by an on-stage ensemble of 6 remarkable mostly-male musicians, Dance Cuba fuses the rapidly clacking heels of the flamenco, with the flowing grace of classical ballet, added to the hot passion of Afro-Cuban dance with a touch of jazz. Altogether it is exciting, riveting - and highly sensual. And as the dance critic in El Paso TX said: "If you ever get a chance to see this company, jump on it!"
