Hi...!..Sadly, there's not too much information out there on the company. About its Artistic Director, cuban dancer and choreographer Miguel Campaneria, this is what is available:
Out of curiosity, and also because of my great desire to visit Puerto Rico, I'm wanting to know any information regarding the National Ballet Theater of Puerto Rico. I only recently realized that there is a major ballet company there and they seem to have no website. Does anyone know anything about this company at all? Dancers? Demographics? Repertoire? Thanks!
"Mr. Campaneria started his ballet training at the National Ballet Academy of Cuba under Alicia Alonso and Azari Plisetski. He joined the National Ballet of Cuba where he became a soloist. Later on, he won the bronze medal in the junior category at the International Ballet Competition in Varna, Bulgaria. He has danced with American Ballet Theater, Pennsylvania Ballet, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and was a principal dancer with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater and Ballets de San Juan. In the 1990's he started teaching and served as ballet master of Ballet Concierto de Puerto Rico. In 2004 he became the artistic director of the National Ballet Theater of Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico".

He studied with Willi Berman in NY and worked very hard on improving his technique and, just when it might have been supposed he was due for a promotion, off he went.
I believe he is Puerto Rican born.
If you do go, glissade jete, let us know how Torres is doing, please.
