The International Ballet Festival of Havana is one of the most significant cultural and dance events in both Cuba and the world. Founded in 1960, this 6-day biennial event will feature 20 + classical and contemporary performances with the best dancers, choreographers, and companies from around the globe. As a group, we will attend 5 performances with privileged access to some of the best seats in the house, meet with dancers, and visit the prestigious Cuban National Ballet School.
In addition, Dance Cuba offers the same immersive cultural experience that is the hallmark of all our adventures. The trip requires extensive time exploring on foot rather than sight-seeing by bus. Cuba travel expert and award-winning photographer Scott Fishman will lead you away from the over-crowded tourist areas and into the nearby streets and surrounding neighborhoods of Havana where the locals carry-on with their daily lives. You will gain privileged access to people and places virtually unseen by tourists and therefore experience authentic Cuba.
Dance Cuba has been designed to appeal to both photographers and non-photographers alike.
