Cuba Ballet family on special birthday
Prima Ballerina Assoluta Alicia Alonso, general director of the Cuban National Ballet, celebrated her birthday Thursday with generations of dancers she has trained and still guides.
Full of optimism and new projects, the prominent artist, one of the mythic classic dancers of the 20th century, highlighted that one of the projects for 2007 is the division of the company into several parts so they may dance for Cubans as well as for international audiences.
Visibly excited and surrounded by her disciples and colleagues, Alonso said she is more than happy any December 21 because many people who are usually busy during the year come to her to express their best wishes.
That makes me feel part of everyone, part of the world, and that is the most beautiful sensation a person may experience, she remarked.
