Nominated for Canadian Dora Awards Lizt Alfonso Ballet
Cuban choreographer Lizt Alfonso has been nominated for the ‘Dora’ Canadian Awards for her show ‘Vida’ (Life), which was recently premiered in Havana.

Alfonso, director of the Lizt Alfonso Ballet Company, was nominated in the categories of Best New Musical, Best Musical Direction and Best Musical Choreography. In the first two categories she shares the nomination with Canadian Kelly Robinson, co-artistic director of ‘Vida’.

The ‘Dora’ Awards are granted annually since 1978 by the Alliance of Stage Arts of Toronto to recognize the best theatre and dance productions of Canada. The award was named after Dora Mavor Moore, who helped establish professional theater in Canada.

The awards ceremony, in which the winners will receive a bronze statue by artist John Romano, will take place on June 30th at the Winter Garden Theater of Toronto.

The Lizt Alfonso Ballet Company was founded in 1991 and its main goal was to train young female dancers in regional dances from the Iberoamerican peninsula in Europe.
