Photographer Omar Robles has over 135,000 followers on Instagram, and we're not surprised, because his latest series of photographs documenting ballet dancers on the streets of Cuba is nothing short of majestic.

"Their dancers are just some of the best dancers in the world," writes Robles on his Blog. "Perhaps it is because movement and rhythm runs in their afro-caribbean blood, but most likely it is due to the Russian school of training which is part of their heritage."

Robles had dreamt of visiting the country for a long time, and thanks to a grant from the Bessie Foundation he was recently able to fulfil this dream. "Cubans struggle incessantly to stay afloat. Yet much like the ballet dancers, they strive with a resilience and elegance that I’ve never seen before. This is exactly why Cuban ballet dancers have always been so great and through so many generations. Endurance simply resides in their blood."
