Seven Defected Cuban Dancers to Perform for First Time in Miami

MIAMI – The seven members of the National Ballet of Cuba who defected in March while on tour in Mexico will perform for the first time in the United States at a May 25 show in Miami.

Ania Ruiz Diaz, Victor Santana, Randy Crespo, Arianni Martin, Edward Morgado, Josue Justice and Analay Saiz will take part in The Best of the Classical Repertoire gala at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater, the Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami announced Friday.

Since its founding in 2005, the Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami has provided support and an artistic space for Cuban dancers who have sought asylum in the United States, Pedro Pablo Peña, the company’s founder and artistic director, said in a statement.

Peña added that he was pleased to present these “talented dancers” to the public, who will surely appreciate their “artistic and technical excellence.”

After defecting during a National Ballet of Cuba performance in Chetumal, Mexico, the seven dancers made their way to the United States and requested asylum in that country.

The Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami said the group of Cuban dancers was the largest to seek asylum at the same time since 1966.
