Santiago de Cuba's Salsa Festival to take off in August

Summer time has been sizzling in Santiago de Cuba this year. The city vibrated with the buzzing Fiesta del Fuego in the first week of July and then the streets lit up with the saucy partying and contagious beats of Carnival. Exciting summer events don’t end here, however. Santiago offers those in love with Cuban music and dance another opportunity to learn more and get into the Caribbean spirit: the Salsa Festival.

This unique celebration is an animated cultural event designed to get your body pulsing to the rhythm of the music. The Salsa Festival invites all enthusiasts to try out their skills whilst getting to know more about Cuban culture. This year, it will take place by the end of summer from 30th August to 6th September and offer a wonderful chance to develop your dance moves and music knowledge. Bookings are now available and tickets are on sale for those whose heart yearn for the animated beats of Cuba’s traditional music.

Whether you’re a first-timer or some sort of salsa sensation, there are classes to hone that underlying talent. Every Salsa Festival ticket ensures that all participants spends a week of training their salsa skills with an individual Cuban dance partner who will coach them and also accompany them to after parties and other fun events. Salsa is not the only rhythm you will move your feet to, other Cuban genres like son, rumba, Afro Cubano, reggaeton, percussion, mozambique, cha cha and danzon will all be part of the experience.

Once participants arrive in Santiago de Cuba, there will be no need to worry as tickets also include a stay in a hotel or a private-owned B&B with breakfast for seven nights. All transportation to and from parties in the evening is also guaranteed. Though days will be filled with intensive dance training there will also be room for fun and a little sightseeing.

Some of the highlights during the evening parties include shows from Ballet Folklorica Cutumba, All Stars, Sabor de Calle, Nano, Live concerts of Septeto Santiaguero and Danza, all first-rate Cuban artists who will impress you with their talent. On the fifth day, the day off where participants can take a break from their classes, they can choose from a handful of excursions in order to get to know Santiago de Cuba better: trips to the Santiago Morro Fortress, a visit to Siboney beach, horseback riding in the countryside or visiting the impressive Sierra Maestra Mountains.

Those who are passionate about dancing and love Cuba beats and culture can now buy tickets and enjoy a summer experience they won’t soon forget, regardless of their actual dance skills.
