Black Ballet

Black Ballet is a tribute to Afro-Cuban dancers. It is thanks to them that many dances brought from Africa by the slaves are kept alive.
Most of these dances have a religious meaning and were offered to the African gods since the Spanish forced the slaves to convert to Catholicism and forget their old beliefs.
Cuba is known the world over due to dances such as salsa, and for its famous National Ballet (where there are oddly very few Afro-Cuban dancers).
