Carlos Acosta speaks about Fernando as a teacher who introduced adolescent boys to the laws of physics in the ballet studio, and while Acosta had little direct contact with Alonso, explains how he benefited from studying with the teachers Alonso trained, with whom Alonso shared his encyclopedic grasp of ballet history and technique and also from the dynamic and powerful men’s style that Alonso helped cultivate in the Cuban company.
