Back To The Roots 02/01/2018

The Cuban Experience Producer Barbara Ambroz says about her documentary on the Cuban footprint in competitive Latin American dancing, "I see it as my purpose to acknowledge the musical and dance heritage of Cuba, to learn from the underlying philosophies and to apply the discoveries to competitive Latin American dance styles.

"It is not so much about comparing the authentic and competitive style, but more about acknowledgement of the specifics and uniqueness of both. However, competitive style could be enriched by conscious implementations of authentic values to  various areas of dance expression."

A book on the topic will be published soon! Watch "Back To The Roots" right here!
