Join us on this exclusive tour to one of the most culturally rich destinations on the planet and experience total
immersion into the music, dance, and traditions of Cuba. This March we are offering a 10-day program in Havana,
with an optional daytrip to Matanzas. The program features 4 hours per day of classes focusing on percussion OR
dance, presentations and cultural exchanges with artists from internationally acclaimed groups, Raíces Profundas and
Ban Rarrá in Havana, and with the Muñequitos in Matanzas. This program is also offered as a one-week package.
DANCE: Salsa, Son, Rueda de Casino, Rumba, Afro-Cuban Folklore - Dancers are separated by level with their own
space, teachers, and Cuban dance partners. Each group has some Afro-Cuban classes with live drummers.
PERCUSSION: Afro-Cuban and Popular rhythms for Congas, Bongó and/or Batá - Percussionists are separated by level with their own studio space and teacher, and by their percussion instrument choice.
The ‘Fiesta del Tambor’ is an annual event organized by Giraldo Piloto, festival founder and revered musical director
of Klimax. The festival features competitions among Cuba’s hottest percussionists and concerts with top performing
groups. We will have the full schedule and plan to attend the festival as a group for at least one event.
