Why join us on this experience? 🌊🎵
Because this is an authentic piece of Cuba on the beautiful Gold Coast, where you will be taught first the history of Salsa while being immersed in the energy and ‘bomba’ of Cuba with the most effervescent facilitators of Cuban dance during the workshops, then party like the Cubans do in an iconic Gold Coast venue. It’s a cultural education as well as an energetic, shake & shimmy move-your-body experience.
