“I traveled to Cuba under the auspices of the Copperbridge Foundation. What was most impressive was how they connected us to two local dance and theatre groups that were exposing and teaching disadvantaged children the joys of the performing arts. Seeing such enthusiastic teachers and parents struggling against economic odds was heart wrenching yet joyous. Without Copperbridge’s experience and connection to Cuban culture, I doubt if I would have been exposed and been able to aid such groups.”
“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.”
