These are photos of the Cuban dancer Minina (Ines Preval).  She is an award-winning modern dancer from Caimanera, the town outside Guantanamo that overlooks the U.S. Naval Station.  Two examples of her success in international and country-wide competitions include that on two occasions she was a dancer with Compania Medula when it was named the outstanding company in the Malakhov Grand Prix and she was named the outstanding individual dancer, and when she was the outstanding female dancer in the Solamente Solo dance competition. I have photographed her in rehearsals of two dance companies, at the Malakhov Grand Prix and the Solamente Solo competition, and at sites in Holguin and Guantanamo, Cuba.
