Cuban ballet master gives classes in US
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SARASOTA, Fla. -- A teacher with the National Ballet School of Cuba
credited with launching the careers of some of the island's most famous
dancers is giving classes in Florida.

Ramona de Saa is teaching for the first time in the United States at the
Sarasota Cuban Ballet School. The six-week classes will end with a
performance Aug. 1.

The school was founded in 2012 by two former Cuban National Ballet
dancers who fled and joined the Sarasota Ballet.

The Sarasota Cuban Ballet School teaches the curriculum of the National
Ballet School of Cuba.

The Aug. 1 performance is titled "Open Stage" and will feature elite
young dancers from the Cuban ballet school making their U.S. premiere.

The Cuban National Ballet is considered one of the finest in the world.
