Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba warms up Canada in the heart of winter, when The Living Arts Centre (LAC) continues its Hot Havana Nights! series on Feb. 28.
The group of 17 dancers and eight musicians and singers is a genuine expression of the cultural melting pot that defines Cuban culture.
Director and choreographer, Lizt Alfonso, founded the company in October 1991. It was the first Cuban dance company to perform at the Latin Grammy Awards. Together with Enrique Iglesias, Descemer Bueno y Gente de Zona, they also perform in the music video Bailando. The company’s performances combine elements of flamenco, ballet and contemporary dance with Spanish and Afro-Cuban rhythms. Artistically flamboyant and musically fulfilling, Made In Cuba is a love story that will take audiences to the four corners of the island country and transport them into the midst of colourful Cuban life.
Tickets start at $40 and can be bought at the box office (905-306-6000) or online at livingartscentre.ca.
