Cuba is the most musical island on the planet and there are countless opportunities to soak in the unique and intoxicating Caribbean rhythms and be mesmerized at the Cubans’ ability to dance. Everywhere you go in Cuba there are small venues with high quality live music and it seems that everybody knows how to dance very well. The music in Cuba is rich and varied, and is born from a fertile mixture of African rhythms and percussion, and European melody and verse. Cuban music has been described as the marriage between the African drum and the Spanish guitar. Cuba definitely feels like the pulsating heart of what it means to be Latino and the music and dance is core to this. Cubans claim to be the creators of some of the more well known Latin musical styles such as Son (which gave birth to Salsa), Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Guaguanco, Bolero, Latin Jazz, Timba and many others that are less well known in the ‘West’.
Salsa is one of the most popular musical styles and dances in Cuba. The Cubans encourage participation. The dancing instructor presents different steps and turns which you then practice individually with your partner. The groups are very precise, which means between 2 and 8 participants. The main emphasis of the course lies in the Cuban style which is also called “Casino” and requires a high level of improvisation. The professional dancing teachers will train you daily, guiding you around the sensual world of hot Latin rhythms.
