Located this dance school online. My cousin and I pre-arranged some dance classes and a massage with Salsabor a Cuba. I did 2 dance classes and 1 massage the school arranged, and my cousin did 4 dance classes. We booked and paid to each have our own private instructor.

Our experience was fun, entertaining, enlightening, and the instructors were professional and knew their stuff. We actually had both our classes next to each other doing the same steps at the same time. It’s a compact dance space, with lots of mirrors so you can see how you are doing, or not doing.

The instructors were so patient, especially as I had no prior salsa experience while my cousin did know a bit. The main instructor was Titi and second instructor was Landie, both spoke English.

It was very hot in the dance studio, with 1 fan turned on during our first few classes. Wasn’t until my cousin had her third class and another group was in the small studio for their class at the same time, that we learned the AC unit worked and could have been on the entire time.

The pictures on trip advisor don't accurately reflect the dance school classroom we experienced. Much smaller, 1 room.

We were there April 30-May 3, and our dance classes were 90 minutes long. The instructors did take a smoke break around 50 minutes in to the classes.

I took 20 hours of private salsa lessons with Eric (Chino), 8 hours kizomba lessons with Denys and 12 hours batchata with Tito.

The 3 of them are really the best. Very professional, dedicated and charming teachers.

They are very patient and believe me, with me they had to be extremely patient. They really go into the details and you have to do it right before they move on.

I certainly will go back to take more lessons and I recommend everyone travelling to Havana to go there and experience it for yourself.

Thank you guys for all the fun and to take us out dancing at night till the early hours.

I will never forget you and you will see me again, probably still this year.

If you are looking for a salsa school, look no further. With only 2 days in Havana I only had time for 2 lessons. Those 4 hours were by far the best experience I had in Havana. Erik is an amazing teacher and will teach you each move precisely, you will not get away with fudging the footwork…and I did try!
The whole team has a great energy. I also highly recommend going to the club with them to practise and to watch the amazing locals show the tourists how it’s done.
As a solo traveller i came away not only having learnt salsa but having made friends along the way. I wish I could bring them to London!

What a delightful 7 days of lessons at Salsabor a Cuba dance school. Erik and his team - lis, Annette, Tito, Dennis are all high level dancers, who were patient and passionate about teaching. As a salsa dancer already, they tailored the lessons to my level. Erik took the time to improve all aspects of my technique.
I took lessons in salsa, ladies styling, son and Kizomba. I would highly recommend this dance school.
Fun, friendly, professional, exceptional teachers.
Thank you all for such an amazing, once in a lifetime experience.

I had a week of private classes with Daylin. I started as an absolute beginner and she taught me all the basics and more with patience, enthusiasm and professionalism, and by the end I could actually string together a decent choreography! They were able to work around my schedule when I wanted to do a walking tour one day, and they even organised a percussion class for me with Randy, who was super nice too. The room is fairly small and basic, but they have fans and AC. All and all a great experience and if I decide to take more classes in Havana, I’ll be back :)

I chose this school because of the reviews here and on other places. It did not disappoint! This school is filled with wonderful instructors- all very patient.All classes are private, one on one instruction. They teach many dances including, obviously, Cuban Salsa.

I took 10 hours of lessons in 4 days and would have done more if my body could have taken it.Hopefully I'll be able to make it back to Havana, and when I do I will spend much more time here!

I had never danced salsa before and didn’t really like dancing that much before taking lessons here. Now I just want to go back and dance some more :) Everybody at Salsabor are very nice and they are very fast at getting back to you. I was dancing with Dangel (Danger) and I had so much fun, that I kept booking more hours. He is a very good teacher. Both funny, charming, a very good dancer and very patient and I will definitely come back and dance with him again :) If you are in Havana you should definitely take a dance lesson here!

I have spent in Havana 8 days with friends, visiting and going to the beach. But during my holiday every evening, I went to Salsabor to take salsa classes and improve my dancing.

I loved each of the lesson I took and the great time with my teacher Leandro León, very professional, kind and fun. With patience and good energy Leandro corrected many of my old bad habits and helped me to improve my styling and sense of rytm.
In one week I have learnt many new figures focusing on quality steps and gained more confidence when dancing. Muchas graciás Leandro.

I am grateful I found this school in Tripadvisor. My experience was great starting with the easy booking, to the possibility the school and Erik gave me to also adjust the time of the lessons when I needed.
One day with two friends we decided to take also two hours lesson of reggeton and it was very cool :)

The time in Salsabor was an experience and an investment I would really raccomend to all the latino dances lovers (beginners and non, salsa and non) because the school is very professional, friendly and really adjusts the teaching to the need of each student.

I am looking forward to go back again and if you are hesitant, don't be, just try it and I am sure you will love it :)
Buena suerte a todos! Julia

I visited Havana in February and I was fortunate to have found this professional dance school. This is the first time I have learnt Cuban Salsa and my wonderful dance teacher Danger was very patient with me and very experienced in teaching me the correct dance technique for Cuban Salsa dance.

Salsabor Cuba Dance school is very professional and my teacher Danger was always on time for my lesson and made me feel very comfortable with his teaching technique.

I had 10 private dance lessons with Danger and I wish I had more time in Havana so I could have undertaken more lessons.

When I return to Havana I will again take my dance lessons with Danger and I highly recommend this dance school to anyone who wants to learn to dance Cuban Salsa.

Thank you Danger and Salsabor Cuba Dance School.

See you next time in Havana.

Kind Regards

Linda.
