LEWISBURG — Cuba’s most popular dance company, Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba, will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts, 1 Dent Drive.

Havana-based Dance Cuba has remained since its founding 15 years ago under the inspired creative direction of dancer-choreographer Lizt Alfonso.

The all-female company of 17 dancers performs “with amaxing unanimity” (New York Times) and with sheer technical finesse” (Chicago Sun-Times).

Accompanied by an on-stage ensemble of six musicians, Dance Cuba fuses the rapidly clacking heels of the flamenco with the flowing grace of classical ballet, added to the hot passion of Afro-Cuban dance with a touch of jazz. They will present a production called Cuba Vibra!
