In the middle of a rehearsal of the show, on the stage of the Sala García Lorca, the teacher interviewed several members of the famous group, who shared their experiences during the pandemic, how they continued to prepare in isolation to maintain form and be able to face these performances and their expectations with the return to the stage.

In their interventions, dancers and members of the technical team of Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba referred to the pride of being the first dance group to dance in this post-Covid-19 stage at the GTH, a coliseum where they have performed on numerous occasions.

Alfonso concluded the broadcast by inviting his followers to share with them this show organized to celebrate the company’s 29 years in the Cuban and international dance scene, and expressed that art and artists are truth, spirit and above all a lot of love. (ACN)
