The equation certainly contains that factor, but the fact that Mme. had tight links with Lucia Chase and de Valois in the past and now with McKenzie, also plays a key role..(that's how she can go over Constitutional laws, and Carreno has the freedom that we don't have to come and go between the two countries). This doesn't apply to Acosta, thought.
I thought the equation for Cuba was whether Alonso had given her blessing to perform abroad, however indefintely. Those to whom she didn't give her blessing were defectors, unable to return home.

Isn't that Istvan Rabovsky?
You are right. When he became a soloist in Hungary he was advised to change his name from Rabovsky as it was not Hungarian. So he became Istvan Rab. When Rabovsky escaped to the West he changed his name back to his real family name.

John Wey Ling in Jackson, Mississippi, 1982.
Alexandra Koltun and Janna Sinitsyna, in Washington, 1991.
Alberto Alonso (New Mexico?) c 1993.
Leonid and Valentina Kozlov, Los Angeles, 1979.
The articles that I saw said that Rolando Sarabia defected by going from Mexico into Texas in 2005?
I remember much of the above--Alexandra Koltun danced with BB, I saw the Kozlovs in LA, and I,too, remember reading that Rolando Sarabia defected by walking across a bridge from Mexico into the U.S.
