Carlos Acosta

Director

Born in 1973, Carlos grew up as the eleventh child of an impoverished family in one of Havana’s poorest districts. His energy and drive to succeed led him to train at the National Ballet School of Cuba. From 1989 to 1991, he performed throughout the world, guesting with several leading companies.

In 1990 he won the Gold Medal at the Prix de Lausanne, the Grand Prix at the 4th biennial Concours International de Danse de Paris, Vignale Danza Prize in Italy and the Frédéric Chopin Prize. Carlos was then invited by Ivan Nagy to dance as a principal with the English National Ballet in London during its 1991/92 season, making his debut in the Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor. In 1991 he won the Prize for Merit in the Young Talent Competition in Positano, Italy, the Italian Osimodanza Prize and the Grand Prix at Cuba's prestigious Union of Writers and Artists (UNEAC) competition.

"In the show we had the impression that many Carlos Acosta were dancing on the scene! Mysticism, music, color, dance, symbols, light, movement, and much energy emerged from the proposals, some of them of high value. "

"Carlos Acosta, our first dancer, not only dreams of realizing his dreams ... but realizes them. And in what way! [...] The debut of Acosta Danza augurs a positive future. "

"... That an audience attracted in large part by the name of Acosta is not disillusioned is a sign of the good design of the show and how talented the Cubans are."

"Acosta Danza is a tangible reality. The premier season was quite an event and not a few regretted the fact of not reaching tickets for the emblematic Havana Coliseum. The dancers were up to the event. "

"The several minutes of applause and standing ovations was an obvious gratifying response to the audacity and tenacity of this promising Cuban dance company."
