Ballet Dancing on the streets of CUBA by Omar Roble


The discipline that ballet requires is obsessive. And only the ones who dedicate their whole lives are able to make it. Your toenails fall off and you peel them away and then you’re asked to dance again and keep smiling. I wanted to become a professional ballet dancer.
Photographer Omar Roble from NewYork  spends most of his time capturing the ballet dancers in rather unusual urban environments, “Cuba, the ballet” his latest project that walks us down to the streets of Cuba.

When the melody plays, footsteps move, heart sings and spirit begin to dance. That’s the magic of ballet.
