The artists’ exquisite skill and artistic diversity of dance instruction make the troupe an important part of the international dance community.

What present to the public should be the artistic expression of the times.” Alicia Alonso explained works such as Giselle, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and Nutcracker. It is because of her joining, Don Quixote performed by Ballet National De Cuba has become a great piece, enabling audiences to enjoy extraordinary style of creation.
