Loved it. The enthusiasm of the young musicians was contagious and the rhythm kept my feet dancing in my chair. This is a “don’t miss” activity

Sitting two feet away from the low stage, the experience is almost overwhelming. This dance company would be impressive for their cardio ability alone. Their percussive talents combine with great dance in an environment where you are looking the dancers in the eye as they...More

You have to see this. The show is unreal. The girls I saw were mesmerizing from dancing to playing drums on chairs. I was so impressed with their sound and show. There was so much passion in what they do.

An incredible evening option with non-stop dancing and percussion played out on wooden chairs, drums and boxes. The dancers/drummers are well rehearsed and move together perfectly. They certainly look like they are having fun. Interspersed through the performance are background discussions of the evolution of...More

We spent part of one day of our tour of Havana at the Habana Compás Dance practice facility. These young adults are simply awesome. Words cannot really express their capabilities; you'll have to find their on-line videos to appreciate their talent.

I have seen this group many times and every time I enjoy it. All women percussion group (one man in group) that drums, beats, dances, etc. all to the beat of drums, sticks, castanets, etc. Definitely one of my very favorite entertainment options in Habana.

The company specializes in a fusion of percussion, music, and dance. The performance was so powerful, it took ones breath away. Music and art are such a key part of the Cuban experience, but this is well above the norm
