One can speak seriously of a Cuban Circus school. A proof of this is the work of the artists trained here in comparison to the ones from the best companies in the world. In fact, it is surprising to know that the largest and most stable companies in the United States and nations from Europe, Asia and the Middle East hire our boys annually.
From June 24 to 29, Havana is preparing to celebrate the 17th edition of what is considered the most important circus festival in the Americas and the third of its kind founded in the world: Circuba.
A tour around almost every region of Cuba will begin in the first days of July until September 2, to once again take a load of joy, adventures and emotions. And it is that « Circus is the space of greatest freedom that man has created for himself. Here human beings can really fly».
