 Train in the legendary Cuban Contemporary Modern dance program while rounding out your experience with a taste of Cuban dance styles such as Casino, Son, Folklore, Rumba & more! 

JULY 29-

AUG 4,2018

This opportunity is perfect for those who want an to experience intensive training with dancers & musicians on the island! Rather than get the "breadth" experience that our people to people exchanges offer, this is a very focused program... allowing you to advance in your skills quickly! The best part: this is not just for professionals … individuals of any level are welcome to join in as well.

This program is ideal if you want to dance every day - Salsa, Casino, Rumba, Son & more! 

(Don't worry, you'll get to explore Havana's highlights!)

In addition to these exciting genres... you'll get a chance to dive into Cuban Contemporary:         A codified technique that fuses Graham with Afro-Cuban movement and footwork. For most Cuban dancers of any genre, this technique is the foundation of the training: helping them increase stamina & strength while drastically improving their body movement & physical awareness! No "Cuban Dance Experience" would be complete without training in this genre
