Cuba is a country in which music and dance is part of everyday life. Havana is a beautiful, truly unique city, quite unlike anywhere else in the world. Most people fall in love with Havana, the people, the way of life and of course, the music! Our school in Havana is located in Miramar, a prosperous residential area of Havana, bordering the sea. The nearest beach is just a short bus ride away. The school is air-conditioned and stands in its own grounds.
