Daily Dance Workshops, flexible scheduling
As the central point of our Salsa Camp you can make use of tempting workshops - 6 hours a day with 11 workshop topics totaling 42 hours a week. You design your own Workshop Program! The focus of the workshops is traditional Cuban dances, such as the Cuban Salsa, the Afro-Cuban Rumba with its stylistic variants Guaguanco, Columbia and Yambu, Son, Mambo and Cha, integrated into Salsa as a dance and stylistic element, and also Rueda de Casino. In addition, there are many further workshop topics.
For intermediate to highly advanced Salsa dancers, men and women, singles and couples
The comprehensive workshops of the Salsa Camp offer all participants the opportunity to test themselves to the height of their abilities and to continue their development as dancers. Lots of fun is guaranteed! In a multifaceted morning workshop program, the focus is on the priority topics of style-, technique-, and body training. In the afternoon, it is mainly figure elements and dance techniques that are studied and practiced, which are danced in pairs or in groups. Important for all participants: For the afternoon program, there is always a Cuban dance partner available for you on request.
Live and enjoy at the Salsa Camp
At the gates of Havana, on Playas del Este (the famous beaches to in the East of Havana), lies the apartment complex Villa Bacuranao, which was completely modernized in 2015. Apartments (with one or two bedrooms) with a small veranda and direct view of the ocean are available exclusively for Salsa Camp participants. The simply furnished apartments are freshly renovated and offer sufficient comfort. The hotel restaurant, directly on the beach with a view of the ocean, offers a lavish lunch and dinner buffet. The pool area with bar and the newly created outdoor area, with grill station, benches, stage, dance- and play areas, invites you to spend pleasant hours, and is used extensively for our Salsa Camp nights.
Experience Havana's Salsa Nightlife
Of course, during the Salsa Camp, there are frequent trips to Havana with our Cuban Dance Team. We transport you to the most popular and sought-after Salsa nightclubs, and we accompany you to spectacular music events and live entertainment, such as Van, Maykel Blanco, Alexander Abreu and Habana de Primera, El Niño and la Verdad, Pupi y los que son,, etc, etc.
