I wish we had a better experience like the other reviews but unfortunately we didn’t. Maybe Leslie was having a bad day but it seemed as if she didn’t want to be there during the class. We didn’t feel welcomed and there was no ocean view at the site. We were on a patch of grass near the ocean. Also, the driver that she sent agreed to take us to the beach after class but then chose to drive past all of these beautiful beaches only to take us to a pond instead. If we’re paying 70CUC for a taxi ride, we expect to be taken to where we discussed. Great concept but it wasn’t executed as well as we hoped.

Leslie was a very patient and attentive instructor. We were well aware we wouldn`t become experts in the few hours, but our goal was just to have fun and make acquaintances with a local expert. Leslie was kind enough to arrange for transportation to and from the beach we practiced. The beach was beautiful. However, the sand was a bit difficult to dance on and the underlying rocks did have to be cleared away beforehand. Still, having instruction with a great and enthusiastic teacher, at a wonderful setting under a bright sun by the ocean, and learning three dances for three hours was a unique and conversation worthy experience.

We loved learning the traditional Cuban dances with Leslie. She is great at teaching and she was so patient with us! My boyfriend and I had no experience in dancing, but Leslie took her time demonstrating and explaining the moves to us over and over again. Besides that, she is very cool and we enjoyed chatting with her about her life and Cuba in general.

Amazing experience... Leslie was wonderful and I highly recommend her class for anyone traveling to Cuba. She's not only an amazing dance instructor and dancer, but has a vast knowledge of the history of her culture and the dance. Will definitely do it again next time I visit Cuba
