Herson Fernández Machado

General Director, Dancer, Dance Instructor

From a young age I have been involved in artistic activities in the community and participated in many dance events organized by the community. During primary school I took various classes in Cuban folklore and traditional dances.


In July 2008 I graduated from UCI university as an IT Engineer. During my studies I participated in performing arts activities through national university groups such as INFODANZ. With these groups, I won various prizes at different levels both as dancer and director of the university's Conjunto Folklórico Universitario Ilú Ashé. As director and dancer for this first group of mine, I participated in numerous projects. After I finished my social service, I left university and joined a school for Cuban dances, Viadanza, from January 2011 to November 2014. During that time I also worked on various assignments for the company Danza Chévere. 


When I finished my second year of social service I became a dancer for the group Espectáculo Villa de San Cristóbal. During the next 6 months I became its producer for 4 months and then assistant director. At the same time I started setting up a children's community project named Manantial, where I teach children basic dance and theater. Currently, I am establishing and consolidating my new dance company Kubasoy. In addition to being the general director, I am also a dancer and instructor for Cuban dances for the company.

Reynier Ávila García

Stage Director, Choreographer, Dancer, Dance Instructor

I followed my calling for dancing from an early age by taking part in various classes at the Casa de Cultura. I later went to the military academy where I joined the movement of art aficionados of the Brigada Artística of the Cuban armed forces in different military schools. Before completing my studies I left the academy and went to the Instituto Superior de Arte ISA, where I continued developing my career in performing arts up to the present.


After university I joined the dance company ISADANZA and appeared in various performances in and outside university. I was also a dancer for different companies such as PB y sus Estrellas, La Compañía de Espectáculos del Circo Nacional de Cuba, Salsa Ashé, La Compañía de Espectáculos Ashé Habanos, La Compañía danzaría Yoldance; I worked as a salsa instructor for the German agency Viadanza Tanzreisen and  as a dancer for Danza Chévere.


Currently, I am a member of the Kubasoy dance company where I am stage director, choreographer and instructor for Cuban dances.


Yolfredys Soto Sierra

From an early age I tried to follow my calling for performing arts and especially dance by taking classes at the Casa de la Cultura when I was 8. In addition to dance classes, I also went to theater classes.


During my time in high school I took part in various activities, for example as a member of the Rueda de Casino at the Dulce María Escalona school and the children's group Juan Francés, with which we came in first and second place respectively in competitions.


I then continued dancing with a community group which focused on Cuban dances and with which I undertook various activities.


I then started my studies and graduated as a social worker. Currently, I am a member of Kubasoy dance company, where I am a dancer and instructor, specializing in Cuban dances.

Aliuska Ramírez Mompie

Dancer, Dance Instructor

I started taking classes in Spanish dances when I was only 3 years old and continued until I was 6. I then took ballet classes for a year and later went to the Casa de Cultura de Alamar for contemporary dance, where I took classes with the Tony Menéndez company as well. I also spent one year studying Cuban dances at the Teatro until I finished school. I then went on to the Escuela de Instructores de Arte for performing arts instructors for four years, majoring in dance. During my studies and for a while afterwards I was part of the folklore group Iya-Aye. 


I subsequently worked for various dance companies such as Narciso Medina and the dance and theater group Villa de San Cristóbal.


I am currently working with children for the community, and I am a member of Kubasoy dance company as dancer, trainer and instructor specializing in Cuban dances.
