Caribbean dance cruises and lessons

Generally you will find free dance classes on most Caribbean cruise ships. There are also dance cruises. There are the occasional week-long line dancing and country dancing cruise vacations for couples where you join other couples to dance the night away. Group dance classes usually take place when the cruise ship is at sea. Other Caribbean dance cruises and/or dance lessons include a mix of: West/East coast swing, Latin styles, line dancing, country two-step and nightclub two-step, ballroom Latin, and Argentine Tango.

Cuba Salsa vacations

Where better to learn the Salsa than in historic Havana, Cuba? With a Cuban dance partner too if you wish. You’ll find plenty of Salsa clubs in Havana and Santiago De Cuba, as well as all-inclusive hotels with free Salsa lessons included (sometimes on the beach), if you do want to spend your Caribbean vacation dancing.
