Arrive in Havana, one of the most spirited, rhythmic cities in the Americas. Experience a unique mix of faded Spanish architecture, vintage American automobiles and streets that are bursting with Afro-Hispanic beats of rumba.
Shuffle from the narrow streets of Havana to the open highway, making tracks for the mausoleum of the legendary Che Guevara in Santa Clara. Then it's onto Trinidad, a World Heritage city that is known for its deep voodoo culture, colonial wealth and incredible music-filled lifestyle. Jump straight into the swing of things with a Cuban dance show, then bust a few moves in a saucy salsa class. There's also a chance to get into the groove with a group percussion lesson, visit the famous 'disco in a cave' or grab a ticket to the hottest event in town – a cabaret show.
Swap the dance floor for the pavement and navigate the winding streets to the home of one of Cuba's most esteemed dance companies – the Ballet de Camaguey. Enjoy a tour of the ballet school and be treated to a live performance from these masters of dance.
A revolution needs noise, and that's certainly the case with Santiago de Cuba – the loud and proud music capital of the Caribbean. Once a hotbed of revolutionary activity, these days it's known more for being the home of sol, a hybrid musical style that combines the tribal sounds of African percussion with the passion of Spanish guitar. After being treated to a performance by a traditional Cuban band, take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put your skills to the test. Take to the stage by dancing with professional local salsa dancers and join local musicians to record a song in a professional music studio.
Return to the capital and perhaps celebrate the end of the trip by showing off your new dance moves at one of Havana's many salsa clubs.
