Ramona de Sáa, as director of the Academy, discusses how the methodology developed over the years and how the curriculum is assayed by the teachers to assure that there is uniformity, how to create an atmosphere in the studio that encourages students to arrive with their best, and the elements that enable their artistry once technique has been mastered, as well as how the support of the revolutionary government support has been essential to the system the Cubans have created and can be counted on in the future.
