The whole island is gearing up for the spectacular occasion.

While in Havana tour members will stay at the elegant Hotel Telegrafo in the heart of the old city, dine at La Guarida restaurant where the Cuban blockbuster "Strawberry and Chocolate" was filmed, tour a cigar factory, meet painters and artists, and take a trip to the western farm province of Pinar del Rio. Hundreds of representatives of ballet from around the world will be in attendance for this once-in-a-lifetime event. Cuba Education Tours wants you to be there as well.

Baila en Cuba (Dance in Cuba) from November 22 to 29, 2008, is the International Latin Dance and Music Festival.
