If you get into salsa dance and music… and you gradually notice that the REAL stuff seems to all come from Cuba…
… then sooner or later you will want to see for yourself… what is this place about…
Several groups in Toronto organize vacations with music and dance in Cuba… you can go with the experience and company of well-informed … well-connected Torontonians!
The trips differ not only by date, but where they go in the country and what they focus on.
Havana is the focus of the modern dance music called timba, Santiago de Cuba is the place where Cuban music all starts. Or if you feel like the dance teachers coming to you at a top resort in the more remote areas of Cuba, you can choose that too.
