John White, who joined the Ballet Nacional de Cuba after a short career dancing in New York and L.A., became injured and began teaching under Fernando Alonso’s tutelage. He married dancer Margarita de Sáa and the couple left Cuba in the early 1960s but returned in recent years so that Margarita could be reunited with her sister, Ramona. White makes known his areas of agreement, as well as disagreement, with Fernando on method and style, but asserts that he has unqualified respect for Fernando as a teacher and human being and for his contribution to Cuban ballet.
