SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — 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.
