IRENE RODRÍGUEZ AND THE MODERNITY OF THE SPANISH DANCES IN CUBA
“I've always been very passionate; I've been devoting myself to what I do since I was little. I always knew what I wanted to do and what I wanted to achieve.
”I devoted my childhood, my adolescence, my youth, and all my dreams and hopes to dance.
”It is a great honor and commitment to have one of the three companies that will show the characteristics of Cuban dance art, and for this I have chosen a comprehensive repertoire, ranging from tradition in a first act to modernity in a second one.”
Last year, the professor celebrated the fifth anniversary of her company's foundation with the inauguration of a seating headquarters for the group's work, focused on Spanish, traditional and contemporary dances.
Irene Rodríguez company was designated, at the end of 2017, as the official headquarters of the Flamenco School of Andalusia in Cuba, which, according to the director, makes a difference in the training of her students.
Irene Rodríguez's mark in the history of the Ballet Español de Cuba (Spanish Ballet of Cuba company) is recognizable. In each production, the charismatic dancer and choreographer leaves her personality imprint and the most demanding audiences acclaim her. Today she is one of the mainstays of Cuban dance culture.
