The Wider Image: An American dance student in Havana
Catherine Conley, the first American full-time student at Cuba's prestigious National Ballet School, hopes to gain an edge back home by learning the powerful Cuban style with its dazzling turns and jumps. Communist-led Cuba is renowned for its rigorous, state-subsidised ballet education and has produced an outsized share of dance stars, such as Carlos Acosta and Jose Manuel Carreno, for a small island of 11 million inhabitants. Cuba's National Ballet School (ENB), which claims to be the world's largest with 3,000 students, has long trained many foreign dancers. But no American had joined its full-time program during the half-century long conflict between Cuba and United States. REUTERS/Alexandre Meneghini SEARCH "CUBA ENB" FOR THIS STORY.
