The relationship between classical dance and Havana is the main theme that captures the photo book Sensual Havana, conducted by the Cuban journalist and photographer Gabriel Davalos. The photographs exhibited some of the qualities that put the Cuban school of ballet in a prominent position globally.
Sensual Havana will be presented on Saturday October 25 at the National Museum of Dance. The artists display naturally and casually their talents, sometimes as never before have been seen on stages and is precisely what Dávalos’ lens captured.
"This dance is about the traditions and lifestyle of the people. The Cuban ballet mirrors are the inhabitants of this city," said the author.
The book will show 60 photographs about the skills of students from the National School of Ballet and soloists, principal dancers and leading figures of companies as the American Ballet Theatre, English National Ballet, National Ballet of Cuba and other foreign companies where Cubans had worked.
