What you'll do

The experience is based on a 2-hour afrodance class. The class, at 11am, is based on learning to dance Cuban salsa, enriching it with the fusion of Afro-Cuban style. Classes are held in a spacious, well-ventilated salon with access to a balcony and guided by me and other professional teachers with a high level of experience in traditional and Afro-Cuban dance.

After class, at 1pm, we will head to a typical Cuban restaurant so that you can eat a delicious traditional Cuban dish. This part of the experience is also included in the price.

We’ll meet again around 9:30 to visitthe two most popular clubs in Havana, where you can experience the essence of Cuban dances and dancers that you can meet personally as they are natives of our country and have the joy and charisma that characterizes us. You will also dance with them in a local environment and enjoy what you have learned all night long.

In the first club, you will dance thanks to the live music of a Cuban orchestra, where normally a local and 100% authentic atmosphere is created. The second club is one of the most popular currently in Havana, where you will be able to enjoy the Cuban hits. In case the nightclubs are not working because of the covid, we will go to one of the most popular night bars in the city, with live music and a great atmosphere. All the places will give you the opportunity to live different experiences dancing and enjoying all night long. Don't miss it!!!

Carlos is an amazing dancer and dance teacher! He was super patient to teach us salsa dance moves and took us to an incredible lunch where we were immersed in the local culture. At night he took us dancing with his friends and we had a blast!! We can't wait to keep dancing!

He had my girlfriend and I dancing salsa with one lesson. The best part is meeting up at the salsa clubs later that night. Will definitely seek out Carlos again next time I am in Havana for another lesson.

Carlos is an amazing instructor!! I took two dance classes in Havana and the experience with Carlos was by far my favorite! I asked if my 9 year old son could participate and he went out of his was to make him feel comfortable. He and had the patience of a saint with my son and still managed to make me feel like I got a great lesson. There was a lot of practice time and I feel that I left with a better understanding of how to follow. I didn't attend the evening out as my son was with me but Carlos phoned around to see if there was anywhere we could go to watch people dance and practice.

Carlos is a very skilled dancer. Even for people who are already at a more advanced level, he can offer very good classes. The clubs in the evening are in a very central location that is safe to take a taxi or even walk to, which is a plus as a female solo traveller.
