Casineros Dance Across the Island!

This is your opportunity to advance your skills and train with Cuba’s most talented dancers & burgeoning new artists! Join the organizers of the San Francisco Salsa Rueda Festival as they team up with Fuákata and MetaMovements to create a one of a kind program, never experienced before. For years all three organizations have been experiencing dance workshops & cultural exchanges on either side of the island and this July they will bridge the communities through a cross country, 2 week road trip. When you’re not dancing or learning about the music, you’ll be immersed in the culture through the eyes of the locals -- learn what the daily life is like to be a professional dancer there, eat and drink the best Cuban cuisine has to offer, and go explore the iconic Old Havana
