Sir David Frost Interviews Carlos for Aljazeera TV

On Friday 14th December, 2012 Aljazeera TV broadcasted an interview and documentary on Carlos by the late Sir David Frost during which Carlos talked about his career and his plans for the Foundation. Filming locations included on site in Cuba at the old Ballet School in the City of Arts, the site of what we hope will be the Foundation’s dance centre, as well as in Old Town Havana.

Cuba Trip

Carlos and Rupert returned from their trip to Cuba having successfully further progressed the Foundation's proposed dance school project at the old Ballet School at the City of Arts complex.

It was a busy week of many meetings including meeting with the local government appointed architect for the City of Arts site, Cuban ministers and other officials as well as giving many press interviews. The overriding message is that this project is supported by the government and would provide much needed regeneration of the area of the City of Arts complex.

Carlos also managed to fit in two performances at the annual Havana International Ballet Festival!
