Carlos Acosta trained in Cuba and then went to England to dance as a principal for the Royal Ballet. he has danced as a guest artist at Paris Opera Ballet and Bolshoi Ballet. He in my opinion is the best dancer in the world. He can jump, he can turn PERFECTLY ( the 7 pirouettes in the middle of the variation) perfect 90 degree leg in his grande pirouettes. And he's incredibly clean hence why he went to royal ballet.
