Born in Havana in 1973, Acosta first studied ballet at the Cuban national ballet school and was instantly hailed both within Cuba and overseas as one of the brightest new stars in the dance world.

Acosta first came to prominence in the early 1990s and performed with some of the world's leading dance companies in cities in Europe and North America.

After finishing a five-year stint with the ballet company in Houston, Acosta moved to take up a position with the Royal Ballet in the UK.

Today, Acosta is generally regarded as one of the most influential male dancers of our time.

Aged 37, Acosta is still bringing audiences to their feet and is currently in the middle of his very own production called "Carlos Acosta Premieres."

"Premieres" is a collection of five daring and dramatic works that are brought together for the first time in dance history.

The production is currently playing at London's Coliseum until August 7, 2010.
