I will try to pay some tribute to lesser known dancers of the NCB that eventually made it out of the company and the country, and currently dancing in some other companies. This as long as I can find some footage of them.
From the Ballet de Monterrey-(Mexico)-website.
Miss Curbelo began her studies at the Elementary Ballet School Alejo Carpentier in Havana in 1985, continuing in the National Ballet School of Havana, where she graduated with the title of professional dancer and teacher of Classical Ballet in 1994. During these years Miss Curbelo participated in various national and international competitions, including the Dance Vignale of Turin in Italy and the UNEAC Contest of Havana, obtaining in both the Gold Medal
In 1994 she joined the National Ballet of Cuba where she reached the rank of Principal Dancer. In 2006, she became a member of Ballet de Monterrey with the category of Soloist, being promoted in 2008 to Principal Dancer and to Primera Ballerina in 2011.
