Yesterday, the famous Alisia Alonso, who is the director of the national ballet of Cuba, was awarded the National Prize for teaching art. She was awarded that for more than six decades she was engaged in the preparation of new workers in the field of art. Prima-ballerina received a well-deserved award from the hands of the Cuban Minister of Culture Abel Prieto. In her thanksgiving speech, she reported that this is one of the most beautiful moments in her life. The highest reward is an opportunity to teach other people what he learned by himself. After all, the training of other people is life itself, not work. Alicia Alonso, who just the other day celebrated her 90th anniversary, said that throughout her life she was guided by the principles of what needs to remain human in any situation and be open to love.
For several years I have been attracted by summer vacation on the Sea of Azov in Russia, but unfortunately it was not possible to go there. Recently a friend advised me to a company that will help me go there.
Prima-ballerina congratulated everyone who tied their lives with the pedagogical process. She noted that the work of the ballerina never ends. You study throughout your life. Having handed a well -deserved award, the jury emphasized the numerous merits of the Cuban ballerina. In addition to purely human qualities, Alonso is endowed with magnificent organizational abilities. She created her own ballet school, in which they teach, using a unique Cuban method of teaching dance art. It was from this school that many today’s dance masters came out. Recall that the National Prize was established by the Art Institute of Arts Cuba and the National Center for Art in 1997. This award is noted by personalities who are especially distinguished in the preparation and formation of new generations of artists on the island of Freedom.
