Israel Ortiz Castellano
Brisbane / Cuba
Israel was born in Santiago de Cuba, and has been dancing practically all of his life. He first went to a specialised dance school at the age of 11 and went on to graduate from the National School of Art in Havana.
After he graduated he worked for two different modern dance companies in Cuba before winning a position in the dance spectacular ‘Havana Nights’ where he travelled the world with this company, performing in more than nine countries throughout Asia and Europe, before settling in Australia in 2003.
Israel is the Director of The Cuban Dance Company (Brisbane) and has been performing and providing tuition for Cuban dance aficionados in Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast for over four years.
