Ballet Revolución Returns in 2013

“Their jumps are astounding, their control is as strong as steel and their free-spirited joy for dance is infectious.” – Sunday Herald Sun 

After its acclaimed world-premiere tour throughout Australia in 2011, and then subsequently sold-out seasons in London, Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Frankfurt and Vienna in 2012, the international Cuban sensation Ballet Revolución returns to Australia in 2013.

What happens when some of the world’s most talented classical and contemporary dancers perform to the infectious rhythms of Latin-America and the Number 1 hits from Usher, Shakira, Beyoncé, Enrique Iglesias, J-Lo, Prince and Chris Brown? The result is an explosive, intense, sensual and impressively athletic performance, full of raw energy with a distinctly Cuban flavour.

“So many great things have happened for the show since we had our world premiere in Australia two years ago,” said Australian producer and creator of Ballet Revolución, Mark Brady. “We have toured to many countries around the world and had the amazing honour of being invited to perform in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II for the Royal Variety Concert on November 19, 2012. Internationally the show continues to wow audiences no matter where we perform, so bringing the shown back to Australia is very exciting.”

Ballet Revolución tour AustraliaBallet Revolución’s young Cuban dancers let their athletic bodies do the talking with breathtaking twists, daring jumps and sensual moves from ballet to street dance. Combining twenty of the finest dancers from the Island of Dance, Cuba, and eight of the hottest young Cuban musicians live on stage, results in a fuelled Cuban cocktail of passion and technical skill.

The dancers were trained at one of the world’s most prestigious dance institutions in their home country, the Escuela Nacional de Arte, with its renowned faculty of modern dance, and at the famous Escuela Nacional de Ballet for classical dance. Dance training is strongly promoted in Cuba. Dance means more than art on the Caribbean island, it means life.
