the " Casa de la Cultura" in Havana in Cuban Dance and salsa. They also
have several years of experience as a salsa or dance teacher

Europeans have while dancing the salsa.
You will notice that during our training many of the salsa dance
techniques will come back each day, this is how our dance team will let
you learn and enjoy salsa.
Because you will have your own Cuban dance
partner, who are also active within the ballet, music or salsa scene,
you will experience their experience at the different education levels.
The lessons take place in the morning
and usually last for about three hours*.
Dependent of the booked trip you will get from 18 till 21 hours of dance
classes. Everyone will get their own Cuban dance partner. No matter if
you are traveling alone or with your own partner.
The first lesson you will learn about all the Cuban dances, like mambo,
cha cha cha and Rumba. After that you will learn about the salsa, rhythm
and time training. Getting familiar with all the other dances is very
important to the development of your salsa education and belongs to the
standard program just like the salsa figures and Rueda de Casino.
During all the lessons there will be spend a lot of attention to style,
body attitude and expression.
Above all, it is very important to us
that you will enjoy the classes and have a lot of fun. And also
experience the passion that many Cubans feel while dancing the salsa.
We like to promote this feeling by
taking you to the many " Fiesta's" outside the lessons and celebrate
this feeling together with our viaDanza team.
* From experience we know that three hours of salsa classes a day gives
the optimal result. We can always provide you with more hours when you
wish to take more classes.
