Cuba Documentary

“In the rest of the world, dance is a business.
In Cuba, dance is passion.”

Cuban dance has a special kind of energy – almost mystique – that is recognized worldwide. The soul of the dance – of whatever style – is expressed through a natural ability and learned technique. With temperament from Moorish roots, flexibility and rhythm from the Afro-Caribbean heritage and an ability to absorb dance styles from visitors to the tiny island – their dance shows their unique passion. We look at who and what inspires it – where is it – and where is it going.

The documentary is currently seeking backers for fundraising and support. To donate, email Nan.
