Several Uruguayan media outlets have just reported that the Minister of Culture of Uruguay, María Julia Muñoz, has just offered Basque ballet dancer Igor Yebra the post of director of the National Ballet of Sodre.
Yebra will follow as the head of this national ballet company if he accepts the formal offer that he personally received from the government to occupy the post. The Board of the National Ballet has already had a meeting with the teacher and choreographer. Now, according to official sources in the country, “we have to wait for his decision and to see if the conditions and time for which he could be in our country.”
