Havana Ballet Festival

Havana Ballet Festival

Ballet is a very important art form in Cuba, and Cuban Ballet is of a high international standard. The Havana Ballet Festival is Cuba’s premier ballet event and is of international renown. It was founded in 1960 by Cuba’s iconic Prima Ballerina, Alicia Alonso, and is held every two years.

Famous dance companies from around the world come to perform and of course the outstanding Cuban ballet companies are also on show. The main venues are the Gran Teatro, which has recently been renamed as the Alicia Alonso Gran Teatro de La Habana, and the Teatro America.

As the festival grows in statue and prestige, it now incorporates art exhibitions, film screenings, and conferences, and has spread to other cities in Cuba.
