With the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, dancers expressed their support and in turn received unprecedented government financial support from Fidel Castro personally. Law 812 was passed, codifying the government’s obligation to support and defend ballet, mandating ballet education for all children, and giving the Ministry of Education oversight. The government assumed responsibility for the ballet academy, utilizing Fernando Alonso’s curriculum as the basis for ballet training.

Keywords:   Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, Law 812, Ministry of Education, Dr. Antonio Nuñez Jímenez, blockade, embargo
