Carlos Acosta says he's considering starting a new dance company in Cuba.
Acosta told Cuba's newspaper Granma that he would like to form a small company along neoclassical and contemporary lines.
"I would like to create a small company to develop a neoclassical and contemporary line. I'm still maturing the idea of the project but it should become a reality in two years. In this way, the Cuban public will have more time to see me dance, because I want to settle here permanently," he asserted.
Acosta plans to say goodbye to stages after preparing a version of Carmen for the Royal Ballet of London, the company in which he's has been guest leading dancer over the last 11 years.
