Overview

“A riveting look into the life and times of a great dance artist. From a small island shrouded in mystery, Fernando Alonso changed the face of ballet for the world. Bravo! A standing ovation for a great read about a fantastic life.”—Ben Vereen, Tony Award winner

 

“One of the most fascinating books I have ever read. Cuba is a mystery to so many of us, and this book gives an insight into the making of a great ballet style and company. A must-read for dancers, students, and balletomanes.”—David Howard, Broadway Dance Center

 

“A long-overdue book about one of the most influential figures in the making of the Cuban ballet miracle.”—Lynn Garafola, author of Legacies of Twentieth-Century Dance

 

“A greatly informative—and unusually structured—account of one of ballet’s most influential and impressive teachers from the past hundred years. The English-speaking dance world has lost track of him owing to Two Cold Wars-that between the United States and Cuba and that between Alonso and his former wife and inspiration, Alicia. The interviews Singer conducts here unflinchingly take stock of both.”—Mindy Aloff, author of Dance Anecdotes

 

“An illuminating biography of one of the most important pedagogues in twentieth-century ballet. Fernando Alonso not only codified the formidable Cuban ballet technique, but he trained many of the extraordinary Cuban dancers who grace the international stage today.”—Suki John, Texas Christian University

 

“Alonso’s philosophies are gems for ballet dancers.”—Miko Fogarty, Gold Medalist, World Ballet Competition, and star of the award-winning film, First Position

    Takeover Chapter 1 By Ava

    Imagine World War III. A war so terrible, so dangerously deadly, that nobody wins. Every county is demolished save a small city, far enough away from everything it survived. These are the last humans. <br>
    Now, imagine the panic when it was realized only around 100 humans were left on Earth. Pandemonium. The city mayor, now leader of the world's, thought? They needed to repopulate. So he created a law. Men could now repopulate using whomever they pleased, however and wherever they wanted. Until that time in which the world was safely populated again. Here is our story. <p>
    <p>
    Trinity woke up to silence. That was familiar to her. The electricity towers had gone down a while back. Silence was a common thing now. She frowned. But one thing wasnt. The new law. Or decree, considering thr mayor was now more of a King than anything else. Sighing, she rolled out of bed. Throughout it all, somehow, they all still had to go to school. But he wasnt sure how well that was going to go today. Last day of the year, plus no rules. Pandemonium. She got dressed in a sweatshirt and jeans, putting her hands in her pockets. Trinity yawned, still tired, wondering if she could manage skipping this last day. Probably not. "Bye mom!" She houted before heading out, closing the door behid her. She stopped dead at te scene in front of her on her lawn. <br>
    Her mother was bent over the hood of their car, her th<_>ong in tatters at her feet. The local mailman was behind her, holding her down on the hood as he fu<_>cked her, his ramrod shaft peircing into her unprotected channel, slamming into her over and over. Trinity's mother was moaning, her face showing pure pleasure. Trinity's eyes widened. She herself was a vi<_>rgin. Looking down, she turned and ran for school, only a few blocks away. Close enough she could leg it. <p>
    <p>
    Like it? Three likes and I'll do another chapter in the res below. The search is 'toba'. If any guys wanna fu<_>ck, leave your name and a place. I'll be there soon ;) ~ Ava
