14 Day Dance Intensives follow a set curriculum that can be tailored to any level. Work your way through Son, Casino, Rumba, AfroCuban, and Timbaton either as a comprehensive introduction to Cuban dance or as a course to advance your skills in the context of bringing different movements into your personal style for social dancing.
The base program starts with 30 hours in the studio with professional instructors. It also includes a night out dancing at a concert with your host, and an afternoon day dancing session. Each program has room to add an afternoon of dancing at the beach, a music for dancers workshop, or other activities as suits your style.
Please note that this is set curriculum. If you are interested in a customized program designed based on your specific interests, please see the Dance in Cuba program!

Meet your host coordinator for introductions and a brief orientation, cover the basics of your program and ask any lingering questions. Then you will have time to rest and dress before meeting later at one of the main concert venues with live music, soak in the sounds and rhythms of Cuba. The first night is all about enjoying the music, letting loose, and dancing out loud. Your host is there to encourage you to get up and move and give you some basic moves you can make your own. No partner required.
Meet your instructors at the studio, warm up with basic Cuban body movements and exercises to develop proper posture, flexibility, and core strength. Work on the fundamental movements in Casino (or Timbaton, or Rumba, or…) and then have time dedicated to practice so you can incorporate what you are learning. Break for lunch and continue for another 2 hours in the afternoon. Take the rest of the day to recover, explore or add more to your program.
Meet at the studio again to continue adding to and refining your skills, then head over to Playa del Este. You’ll take a private taxi to save time and hassle, enjoy lunch with your instructor, and then have time relaxing on the beach with a dance workshop in the sand (additional fees).
