Grace, beauty and rhythm, are just some of the words that came to my mind when I saw these wonderful ballet performing in Cuenca, Ecuador. Through the Ballet Nacional and its network of schools, Alicia and Fernando Alonso have created a uniquely Cuban style of dance. Earning worldwide acclaim, the Ballet has performed in 58 countries and received hundreds of international awards. Additionally, Cuban-trained dancers are now marquee names in top ballet companies throughout the world. This picture was captured with an infrared camera to avoid disturbing the performers.

    Very beautiful! How thoughtful of you to use IR for the photos! Many years ago I had the privilage of photographing Alicia Alonso at her studio in Cuba. At that time, her daughter Laura was teaching ballet to children with downs syndrome.
