The New York Times on Dance Cuba!

"As if it hadn’t been unseasonably warm all week in Boston, Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba blew into town promising a hot night in Havana. Sunday afternoon at an unseasonably cold Cutler Majestic Theatre, the troupe delivered, making Christmas in Cuba seem an enticing prospect... And the ladies, with or without men, had a good time. Any audience would be hard pressed not to follow suit." - The Boston Globe, on a recent Dance Cuba! performance

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!”
