Trip to Cuba

 Attention Lovers of Cuban Dance!!

Join us & the Compania All Stars for the next chapter in our 5 years of collaboration & cultural exchange, as we take an unforgettable journey to the soulful and magical island of Cuba, where you’ll be immersed in Cuban culture, dance, music & arts!

This year we will take a journey to the beautiful cities of Bayamo, Santiago, and Guantanamo April 27th – May 7th, 2018.

You will experience an unforgettable 10 day voyage that not only explores the historic sites of the cities that we will visit, but also will give you the opportunity to intensively train popular (Salsa Rueda de Casino, Son, Pilon, Rumba) & folklore dances (ex. different Orishas, Palo, dances from Haiti, and more) while engaging and getting to know the Cuban artists that will be our instructors.

Classes will be taught by Jorge Luna Roque, dancers from the All Stars, as well as top instructors from other dance companies from the different provinces in Cuba, including over 10 Rueda de Casino groups from el Oriente (Eastern Cuba), Cuban national dance companies such as Cutumba, Ballet Folklorico de Oriente, and Babul from Guantanamo. We welcome dance lovers of all skill levels. All dance workshops will be tailored to dancers of different skill levels.

The EXCITING agenda we have designed for you includes daily dance classes, tours of the cities, discussions, performances by local artists, and free time if you would like to do tourist/cultural activities in the morning or afternoon.
