Carlos Acosta
Cuban dancer, Carlos Acosta, was awarded Doctor Honoris Cause from the Metropolitan University of London by Dean John Carter.

Acosta expressed that this experience would inspire him to greater efforts in his work and to be better in his professional life.

He added that although he had received other awards in his life, he never imagined receiving a doctorate, more so by this center of Higher studies that has supported Cuba in many actions of solidarity.

The London Guildhall University that conferred the award on the Cuban dancer was founded in 1848 and is bonded to the University of North London, founded in 1896.

Its alumni include more than 34 thousand students and seven thousand are foreign from 155 countries.

Carlos Acosta has been awarded many prizes that include the Gold Medal at the Lausanne, the Grand Prix in the Fourth Biennial of the International Dance Competition of Paris and the Vignale Dance Prize of Italy.

He also holds the Grand Prix of the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC) and the Princes Grace Foundation of the United States.

In addition to dancing in the Cuban National Ballet, Acosta is guest dancer in the London Royal Ballet, the American Ballet Theater, the Paris Opera Ballet and the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia.
