Seven members of the Ballet Nacional de Cuba (BNC) defected during a recent tour of Mexican cities and sought asylum in the United States, a Miami news site reported.
Six of the defectors crossed the Mexican border into Texas and have been in Miami since last Friday after seeking asylum with US authorities, according to the Café Fuerte website.
“This is the toughest decision I have made in my entire life, but we are not thinking about the past, we are thinking about the future,” said Annie Ruiz Díaz, a 24-year dancer quoted by the site. “We decided to seek a better artistic life and economic welfare for our families.”Which means freeing themselves from the Castro creeps. Anyone think they'll be invited to dance at the White House soon?
