“When we visited the Art School we were hosted by “Oz” a former student and now teacher. After our tour, he and I talked a bit. I gave him a gift of photograph notecards that I make and sell is the US … he insisted on giving me a gift of one of his prints. I recognized it as a head that reflected a map of Havana. He was pleased that I knew what he wanted to convey; I was touched that he wanted to give me a gift. “The universal language of the Arts” touched us both.”
“My wife and I participated in one of your People-to-People programs in Cuba this past May. It was one of the most memorable trips we have ever been on!
The people are wonderful and very caring. The highlight of highlights of this journey was a visit to the Narciso Medina Dance Company to watch a performance by these mostly teenagers. We were struck by the ability, creativity and, most of all, the passion of these young people for their art.
They were truly amazing – even in a barren theater their performance was on a par with some of the best professional dance companies we have seen in the United States.
The work you do foster interaction and better understanding between the people of both countries is outstanding!
Keep up the good work!
Thank you for the opportunity to meet such wonderful people.”
