Ballet Star Carlos Acosta to Open Cuba Ballet Company?

Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta, one of the world's top ballet dancers, said he wants to open a dance company in Cuba after he retires from The Royal Ballet of London.

The 41-year-old ballet star told Cuba's newspaper Granma that he wants to form a small neoclassical and contemporary company. Acosta was one of 11 children born to a poor Havana family. He studied with the National Ballet of Cuba and then in 1998 he joined London's Royal Ballet and has been a principal guest artist there since 2003.

Acosta will be retiring from classical dance after the 2015-2016 season.
