Dance Intensive

If you're seeking intensive training opportunities... this is the program option for you!  Connect to the Cuban dance community and build friendships with people who are as passionate about dance as you are, all while building your skills! In addition to high quality dance workshops, you will also witness amazing performances, see the city from a dancer’s perspective, and learn more about the music and the history!

Dance Exploration

Designed for the artist, the traveler, and cultural enthusiast alike, this program will enable you to have a wide variety of experiences in the amazing world of Cuban art and culture, but with a special focus on dance, music and history. Some activities take place in a class setting, some as site visits, and others take you off-the-beaten path, for unique adventures in nature and to the streets of Havana. Connect to Cuba and its artists in a way you never knew possible!

DAILY PROGRAM of ACTIVITIES

SHAPE YOUR PROGRAM

TELL US ABOUT YOUR GOALS

Once you register, we take the time to learn more about your goals and preferences so that you can enjoy your time on the island to the fullest!

Start to think about some of the questions below & help shape the remainder of your program

1) Tell us about your past dance training, and the the types of learning environments you enjoy

2) What are your current dance goals, and what you are hoping to learn on this trip?

3) What would you like to learn about outside of dance? (music, history, culture, health, other)

4) Would you like to teach or perform while you are there?

5) In what ways might you like to help or give back? (i.e. helping people practice English, sharing music or videos that you love, bringing supplies that artists or youth programs need, etc)

Using this information, we are able to help each of our travelers have a unique personal experience, at the same time as they are part of a special GROUP experience that it is impossible to have on your own... The best of both worlds!
