CUBAN TELEVISION BALLET CO. PRESS RELEASE Fusion 20000 40 City American Tour, Music, Vaudeville, Dance & A Little Bit Of The Circus (Based on Cuba’s cultural fusion) For nearly fifty years, the United States has not had the opportunity to experience one of the world’s greatest entertainment joys, Cuban song and ballet dancers and performers direct from Cuba. All of the Cuban Television Ballet Co. members are graduates from Cuba’s School of Ballet & Dance.
The Cuban Television Ballet Company was founded in 1967 by Louis Trapazo and Christy Dominguez, the first premier ballerina and teacher of Cuban stage dance. In January of 1993, Guillermo del Rosario, of Gap Del Caribe S.A. De C.V. (a Cancun based production company), a Cuban Producer General Manager, began to recruit 25 of Cuba’s most talented and beautiful male and female top dancers, specialty performers and a 14 member Cuban band, many of whom have previously performed throughout the world on both stage and television (where they have received many awards and acknowledgments), to show the excellence and professional talents of these performers. The Cuban Television Ballet Company members, Fusion 2000, are based in Cancun, Mexico, and all payments received go to the ballet cast and production company. The Cuban government is not included, nor does it receive any of the monetary proceeds.
Fusion 2000 is a collection of the expression of Cuban, Spanish, Mexican, African and American vaudeville, music, hot rhythms and dance, and skits of both past and present.
This presentation will prove to be one of the best, most exciting, most refreshing, stimulating, cultural musical and dance shows of all time. Fusion 2000 includes the award winning Perezoff Trio Cycling Troupe, featuring the Cuban master of cycling, Raul Perez Martinez. This medal winning act is something truly special to see. Most of all, Fusion 2000 is funny, sexy, creative and dramatic, with 22 different dynamic scenes. The show is 21/2 non-stop hours in length… The show is the expression of the fusion of cultures portrayed by dance and music.
