Further you the possibility to take advantage of me and my Cuban partners' strong network, commitment, knowledge and experience on Cuban salsa, music, culture and nature.
About the program:
The tour has a flexible program in the best Salsa Camp in Cuba style, with a mix of dance workshops, music, cultural meetings and excursions. You will have the advantages of boths being in a large group with access to common dance lessons, events, parties and social activities ass well as the advantages of beeing in small groups or alone, where you are able to design your own program with private dance lessons, cultural excursions, relaxing moments and to explore on your own, just as you like.
Are you for example a salsa-, son- or salsaton freak, then you can design your special salsa-, son- or salsaton dance-program with private dance lessons ad libitum in Havana, Santiago and Baracoa, with the dance instructors that you think will suit you best to move forward in your dance!
Or would you like to combine dance, culture and nature, you will have the possibility, besides the offered cultural and nature tours, to make suggestions about, what you would like to see. If this is not achiveable in the "main program", I will try to satisfy your wishes in the "a small additional program-" by arranging excursions etc. with English speaking Cuban guides from my Cuban partner network.
