About the Author

Carlos Acosta was born in Cuba in 1973. He started dancing when he was nine. From 1989 to 1991 he performed throughout the world, guesting with companies including the Compagnia Teatro Nuovo di Torino in Italy. Soon afterwards, he was made a member of the National Ballet of Cuba, becoming Principal Dancer in 1994. In 1993, he made his American stage debut as the Prince in ‘The Nutcracker’ and in 1998 became the first black principal dancer at The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden. Over the years, Carlos has appeared as an international guest artist in the USA, Russia, Holland, Chile, Argentina, Greece, Japan, Italy, Germany and France.

In 2003, Carlos was featured in ‘The Reluctant Ballet Dancer’, a programme in the Imagine series shown on BBC1.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. G. Clark on 21 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
A touching and personal story of Carlos Acosta's childhood in Cuba and his rise to fame as a ballet dancer. Really enjoyed reading about his interesting family background. Far better value than his recent appearances at the Coliseum - I felt he was past his peak and making good money out of very expensive tickets.
