TravelOn2 & Metamovements present the roots of salsa. Starting with folkloric dance, learn rumba, rueda, son, and more, as we make the connection between Cuban mambo and New York-style salsa.  Dance the nights away with us to pulsating latin rhythms heavy on African drums with a seemingly endless supply of gyrating dancers.  If you love to travel and you love to dance…this is the trip for you!

One amazing trip... customized for the Travel On2 community!

Build a relationship with the Salsa on 2 Community of Havana! From authentic exchanges to exciting workshops and performances, this trip, designed especially for the Travel on2 Community, will allow you to experiance salsa, dance & music in a whole new context.

 

This trip will also include our favorite features of our tried and true "Explore Cuba" People to People exchange programs! When you are not dancing, you will explore this neighboring island that has now opened up to us after 50 years of division. Through extensive, daily interaction with business owners, artists, and scholars you will build meaningful relationships with those that are shaping its promising future.
