In the short span since its establishment in 2012, Malpaso Dance Company has already become one of the most sought-after Cuban dance companies with a growing international profile.

Emphasizing a collaborative creative process, Malpaso is committed to working with top international choreographers while also nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography.

The company tours with 11 dancers and is led by its original three founders: resident choreographer and Artistic Director Osnel Delgado, Executive Director Fernando Sáez and dancer and co-founder Daileidys Carrazana.

While at the Weis Center, they will perform:

  • “Ocaso” by Osnel Delgado
  • “Elemental” by Robyn Mineko Williams
  • “Why You Follow” by Ron K Brown

The performance is sponsored, in part, by Centre Daily Times.
