Three-Years Ago (23-November-2018) — Cuba

Gone to See Cuba 2011 People to People Cultural Exchange. Day 5 of a Street Photography Workshop led by Steve Simon.

The group spent the morning at the Cuban Ballet School. Not for a performance, but practice. It was in an old run down, but once majestic building. We were told the students from Cuba attended for free, but those from other countries paid tuition, which paid some of the bills. The director was looking for donations of costumes and dance shoes.
