All students of salsa will have a Cuban dance partner throughout the salsa classes, which will enable you to get a really deep understanding of authentic Cuban salsa.

Dance Holiday Testimonials & Reviews
"I chose the tango holiday in Argentina as something which would be a bit different, give me an opportunity to do something creative and give me an insight into the local culture. It certainly met all these aims, and most of all was a lot of fun. I enjoy dancing as a pasttime, but I think anyone could have a go at this. [Mel's lessons were] also a lot of fun, taking in different styles and music. He was very easy to get on with and always helpful in recommending places to go to dance, or shows to see ... One group lesson per week also worked well. I learnt things in different ways at the different classes, and it was good to meet up with local Argentineans at the group class. All in all, I fully recommend the tango placement as very rewarding, creative and great fun." Participant who booked tango lessons in Buenos Aires with Travellers Worldwide.
