This is a tweak of Salsa en Cuba! 2015, to include two group members previously missing. Cuba's music, dance & culture reflect a unique mix of rhythms and peoples. We'd long sought the right licensed group trip -- still required -- that would take us to the heart of Havana. Elizabeth found 'Salsa Retreats,' based in Seattle, which offers two hours a day of drumming with top pros and three hours of dancing salsa a day with gifted young dancers -- and club dancing each night with the same dancers -- plus rooming in a Cuban home. Our slice of Cuba was close to the bone and not fancy, but it was full of life! There are many other ways to see Cuba; ours brought us close to real Cubans and let us work one-on-one with elite dancers and musicians. If you love rhythm, dance and a bit of adventure, this trip might be for you!
