The dance company Danza Contemporanea de Cuba has been nominated for the Olivier Awards 2011 in the Best New Dance Production category with ‘Mambo 3 XXI’ by Cuban choreographer George Cespedes.

The Laurence Olivier Awards, or simply the Olivier Awards, are presented annually by the Society of London Theatre to recognise excellence in professional theatre.

According to Wikipedia, they are named after the renowned British actor Laurence Olivier and they are given for West End shows and other productions staged in London.

The Olivier Awards are recognised internationally as the highest honor in British theatre and are considered to be the theatre industry equivalent of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for television and film; in terms of theatre, they are the British equivalent of Broadway's Tony Awards.

The awards were first established in 1976 as The Society of West End Theatre Awards, however in 1984, the renowned British actor Lord Olivier gave consent for the awards to be renamed in his honour and they became known as the Laurence Olivier Awards.
