To inhabit in Magisterium is an act of great responsibility. To transmit knowledge, is a gesture as admirable as fulfilling. To write a book, a technical book, is more judicious yet challenging because it transcends the students in a classroom. As teachers we transmit values and knowledge, but in particular educating in the art world we cultivate freedom.
From my innate incentive for creation, to go after new goals and confront adversity, Técnica de Dúo -Duo of Technique- has emerge. For this reason, knowledge and dedication to share what I've learned, I am pleased to say, that I have lived, the decision.
To create this book, I have relied on research and reviews of relevant publications but above all, in my experience within the Cuban National Ballet beside Alicia Alonso and in the last years the master Fernando Alonso who didn't have any cavil to share with me, in a personal and very special way, a little of his wisdom.
