Carlos Acosta Biography - From Cuban Rhythms to Classical Pirouettes
Born the youngest of 11 children in Havana, this aspiring performer was encouraged by his father to pursue a love for dance. By the age of nine, he was enrolled in the National Ballet of Cuba and showed extraordinary talent from the very beginning, outshining many of his contemporaries. At just 16, he left his home country to tour with various companies across the world, and it proved a good call. He soon claimed the prestigious Prix de Lausanne, an international competition for those seeking a professional career in dance. In 1991, he was invited to become a principal dancer with the English National Ballet, then guested with companies in Cuba, America and Russia before finally joining London's Royal Ballet seven years later.
Widely hailed as the greatest male ballet dancer of his generation, he's proved there are many more strings to his bow - branching out into choreography, writing and even appearing in feature films. In 2015, he produced and starred in his final ever show with the Royal Ballet, Carmen, and received a full 20 minutes of applause at its close. To celebrate a career on the stage he plays his final shows in 'A Classical Farewell Tour' this October. Get Carlos Acosta tickets now on StubHub.
