I have a question for some of our more experienced Havana travellers. Are there quite a few nightclubs and/or discos in Havana that are specifically geared to traditional Cuban dance?
Already thinking ahead to 2012 when we'll stay on Playa Ancon, tour Trinidad of course, and on to Pinar del Rio and Havana for a couple of days and at least one over-night stay in the capital. My wife would like to try some traditional salsa, cha cha cha, and merengue while there. Of course I don't know how to do those steps at all, but my wife has been wanting me to take ballroom dance lessons with her for quite some time now. If I'm going to make the investment (or "mistake"? Help! lol), I'd definitely like to try my new moves out dancing amongst the best. I'm sure my swagger would be good for a few belly laughs at the very least. My wife has no worries though ~ she looks good even standing still. ;-)
