Summer in Havana – Music & Dance Explorations
June 15–29, 2013
Our escorted people-to-people programs are fun and free of the usual headaches of foreign travel, since our experts handle all the details for you. We’ll help you get oriented with lots of tips and insider information from our many years of experience in Cuba. Our in-country team is made up of seasoned professionals, and all our programs include English-speaking Cuban hosts and guides, who will be on hand to coordinate events and provide assistance every step of the way. Our very reasonable program fees include accommodations, many meals, travel license, and ground transportation.
Our Music and Dance Explorations program is a rich and highly interactive people-to-people exploration that focuses on the arts and Cuba’s music- and dance-centric culture. It will provide you with many opportunities to connect with Cubans who share your passion for music and dance and to interact with Cubans in their everyday lives—at home, work, school and play.
As a participant of our program you will enjoy many opportunities not generally available to the casual traveler. You will be meet dancers and teachers who specialize in popular Cuban dances like Salsa, Son and Rueda de Casino, and interact with renowned Cuban dance professionals such as Yanek Revilla from Santiago de Cuba, members of the internationally acclaimed dance company Ban Rarrá, and teachers from the National School of Dance. You will get a first hand look at the music and culture of Cuba, with one-on-one discussions on a variety of topics. Master musicians, like José Eladio Amat, Enrique Plá and “Pupy” Pedroso, as well as professors from the National School of Music, will join the group for personalized interactions and lively exchanges.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore Cuba through very focused people-to-people interactions with artists, performers, students, teachers, farmers, entrepreneurs and the wonderfully welcoming people of Cuba!
