International dance devotees have been waiting a long time—50 years, to be exact—for the U.S. debut of Danza Contemporánea de Cuba. Since America severed ties with the island nation in the early 1960s, the dance company, which melds traditional ballet and Afro-Cuban folkloric styles, has kept a busy schedule touring Asia, Australia and Europe. On May 10, it kicked off its first U.S. tour with a 12-day engagement at the Joyce Theater in New York. During the course of their stay, the dancers, known for their exceptional athleticism and strength, will perform five numbers, including "Horizonte," a première piece by Pedro Ruiz, the first Cuban-American choreographer commissioned by the troupe since its inception in 1959. Through May 22 at 175 Eighth Ave.; 212-242-0800; joyce.org.
