Peter Hapak – the Cuban National Ballet

Photojournalism June 9, 2011 8:36 am

I spent a month during my college years in Havana. Posters for the ballet were everywhere, and everybody I spoke to told me that I had to see them – absolutely could not leave the country without seeing them dance. Alas they were no shows while I was there. Being a failed ballerina at age 5 (to quote my parents, I stormed out of my first class after about thirty seconds, sweaty and red faced, screaming “too hard”.. my parents consider this a pivotal moment in my personality. Ahem)
