Acosta Danza

Acosta Danza

Acosta Danza was created by Carlos Acosta in 2015 to harness and develop the young creative dance talent emerging from Cuba. The ethos of the company is to produce dancers that can combine both classical and contemporary genres effortlessly, imbibed with Cuba’s rich musical and dance influences, to create repertoire that is exciting and stimulating and that pushes conventional boundaries.

The company has already been fortunate enough to work with some of the world’s leading choreographers. It also encourages the emergence and development of new choreography from among its own members, to great success.

The company performed for the first time at the Gran Teatro de la Habana Alicia Alonso in Cuba in April 2016 and has since performed across Europe and internationally to great critical acclaim.

Autumn 2017 saw the company make its debut in the UK at Sadler’s Wells, before embarking on a UK-wide tour produced by Valid Productions and Sadler’s Wells, with co-production support from The Movement and Festpielhaus St Pölten.

Acosta Danza is extremely grateful to its Founder Sponsor, Aud Jebsen, for her continued and unwavering support throughout its journey to date, as well as to the late Sir David Tang and Sir Simon Robey for their generous assistance.

Acosta Danza is proud to have been chosen as an International Associate Company of Sadler’s Wells, London.
