Havana, Oct 18 (Prensa Latina) The dancer and director of the English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, today described Cuban the Prima Ballerina Assoluta Alicia Alonso as a dancer of incomparable technique in her time.

Alicia was also a woman of great courage and determination that overcame many difficulties and leaves an extraordinary legacy for Cuba and the world of ballet, said the artist in statements to Prensa Latina.

Rojo treasures multiple medals and titles such as the 2005 Prince of Asturias Award and the 2008 Benois of the Dance, considered the Oscar for artistic manifestation.

In Cuba, this dancer from Spain has performed at several international Ballet festivals in Havana and was the main figure of the functions offered in this capital by the Royal Ballet of London during her only visit to the country in 2009.

Rojo was the star of that company and is probably the foreign artist who has danced with the greatest number of Cubans on the planet. World critics reference her scenic couple with Carlos Acosta as one of the greatest dance partner in the history of the dance.

Alonso died the day before at 98 years of age, in Havana, the city where she was born on December 21, 1920 and was director of the National Ballet of Cuba, company founded in 1948 by her and the brothers Alberto and Fernando Alonso.
