Cuban ballet dancers defect while on tour in Mexico...

Seven members of the National Ballet of Cuba defected during a performing tour of Mexico last month.

A ballet spokesman confirmed the news, saying only that they had not returned at the end of the tour.

The world-renowned troupe, led by legendary ballerina Alicia Alonso, has been hit by defections before.

A Cuban exile website based in Miami said six of the defectors were now in the United States, while the seventh was still in Mexico.

The head of Havana's National Ballet School, where some of them had studied, expressed her sadness at the news. Full story...
