“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.”
