Having had most of her training via scholarship at the Vaganova Institute, Martínez returned to Cuba to work on special programs there including in theater and television. She emphasizes the dedication to intellectual development that Fernando Alonso brought to his students and shares a bit of Cuban history and the overlap between the arts and the guerrilla movement in the mountains and workers’ organizations in Havana, ending with the hope that Fernando Alonso’s role in the development of ballet in Cuba will finally get the recognition it deserves.
