which explore the cultural artistry and strength of the Cuban people from a different value of perspective.
” he explains. “Much like the ballet dancers, they strive with a resilience and elegance that I’ve never seen before. Different from the long and weary faces we see in our metropolises, the Cuban people hustle daily with an unparalleled amount of pride, selflessness and dignity. I realized then, that above any other reason, this is exactly why Cuban ballet dancers have always been so great and through so many generations. Endurance simply resides in their blood.”
