Choreographer Azari Plisetsky, brother of the great Bolshoi ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, is from a family of Russian actors and dancers. Mr. Plisetsky danced with the Bolshoi Ballet and joined the Ballet Nacional de Cuba after the Alonsos toured the Soviet Union. The Alonsos had requested that a dancer from there join the Bolshoi Ballet join the company as well as teach at the school. Mr. Plisetsky assumed the responsibility of teaching the men’s classes and helped develop the program at Cubacán (the First National School of Arts in Cuba), while at the same time partnering Alicia and setting choreography on the company.
