Explosión Cubana: Una Noche Tropical
CubaCaribe in collaboration with Dance Mission presents
Explosión Cubana: Una Noche Tropical

In the spirit of Havana's celebrated Tropicana nightclub, CubaCaribe in collaboration with Dance Mission Theater presents a sizzling evening of Cuban cabaret featuring Alayo Dance Company, complete with dinner and a show. With artistic direction and choreography by Ramon Ramos Alayo and live music by Patricio Angulo, this dance extravaganza takes its audience on a journey celebrating the evolution of Cuban dance and music  from Folkloric to Popular to Modern (and everything in between).

The intimate Dance Mission Theater will be turned upside down, with the audience sitting on the stage to experience this tropical spectacular. Additional choreography is by Jose "Cheo" Rojas of Cuba's Ban Rara, Yismari Ramos Tellez of Cuba's Lady Salsa, and Denmis Bain Savigne of Las Vegas' Havana Nights.

Joining the stellar dancers of Alayo Dance Company on stage are visiting artists from Santiago, Cuba's Danza del Caribe as well as other guests.

The colorful evening will be accompanied by a live band and Cuban meal, complete with an appetizer, main course, and dessert (Please note: Cuban tapas only will be served for first weekend, Nov 21-23).

Evening begins at 7:30pm - please arrive NO LATER than 7:15pm.
