We will be dancing every day, taking classes in the many styles of Cuban dance and then going to the famous dance halls and clubs to dance and be entertained by some of Cubas best bands and spectacular dance shows. This is where you will have the chance to strut your new found moves and grooves all with the support of Cuban dancing partners…professional teachers and dancers. There will also be opportunities to meet and possibly even play with some of Cubas famous musicians.
