Would you like a fantastic dance- and culture experience? Then this is where it happens - a vacation you will never forget!
You will get your own Cuban dance partner. Everyone can participate, both singles and couples.
There is some of Cubas best teachers from The National Dance School ENA and ISA, which are ready to give the participants an unique dance experience.

Vi update continuously with new dates for each year.
These dates are travel dates, where most usualy go. But you choose for yourself, when you would like to come and go. The course starts on Monday and ends Friday the week after. There are 14 nights included in the price. It is also possible to arrive before or after, if you for example fin a better and cheaper flight, as well as it is possible to stay after the course ends. Then you just pay for those extra nights at the hotel. Some choose to travel around in the island and see things, after the course.
If you can't these dates, then there is a possibility for individual (one-to-one) classes all year around, we also arrange for little and big groups. Send us an email, then we have more information for you.
The courses and accomodation will take place on Hotel Kohly i Havana. There are classes 10 days in total, from Monday to Friday.
You will receive 3 hour classes daily in Salsa, Rueda de Casino, and a little Son, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba and Afro Cuban dance. There are little breaks in between, and a little longer break in the middle of the day.
The classes are on all levels, for both totally beginners, intermediate, advanced and professionals. You will get divided into teams and all participants will get their own Cuban dance partner, which will help and dance with them during the course. Everyone gets a diploma from the school by the end of the course. There are between 20-30 participants per course in all ages, and the participants come from the whole world.
We have a lot who repeat the trip several times, as you can always learn new things, and you won't get enought of Cuba, once you have been there once.

The hotel in Cuba
During the course, we will live in a cozy hotel, 10-15 minutes in car from the center. The classes will be held in the hotel in good dance studios with aircondition, or outdoors below the palms. On the hotel there is a swimmingpool, tennis courts, bowling bar, fitness center, massage, sauna and net café (so you can send emails home) and lovely green areas nearby.
