During my tour with Clave Cuba, the dance demonstration on the first day was so amazing that I jokingly told people, ‘Okay, I can go home now.’ But each day had a moment like that, when I needed to pinch myself to remind me that I was really here, really experiencing this…in a son class, or a jazz concert, or a musicality workshop…The variety of cultural events and lessons really exceeded my expectations. Thanks, Clave Cuba!
My experience was life changing! My favorite part will always be the people I met and spent time with and their warm welcome. You and Carlos were great! You packed so many amazing experiences into a short, rich adventure filled with chaos, excitement, music, dancing, and bonding together of so many people! I will forever be grateful for the genuine, unique and wonderful experiences i had on that trip!
