Canada's Ballet Jorgen Commission - Jose Angel Carret
2021 Tribute Gala - December 12th
This year, we hosted a Tribute Gala initiating our winter TEADE 2021.
In the past in Cuba, we have done tributes to remarkable artists from Cuba who have contributed to the arts not only dance but arts in general. This year we did our first tribute gala night in person in Canada for Bengt Jorgen and Narciso Medina, an amazing Cuban artist, Tributes are part of our event TEADE' mandate to recognize excellence in artists. We also celebrated José Angel Carret's 30 year career anniversary!
