Bailes Cubanos

Bailes Cubanos – The Salsa Association of the Turku Region was established 19.3.2006 with the intention of bringing the salsa dancers of the region together, and promoting and facilitating salsa dancing in the region.

To this purpose, the association has been organizing regular salsa parties (Club Sol) and other salsa events, occasional intensive courses to supplement the regular dance lessons provided by the local salsa schools, and disseminating information about salsa activities in the region through this website, Facebook group and a mailing list.

Bailes Cubanos wants to promote the rich music and dance culture of the Latin America, especially of the Cuban and Caribbean area. Happy and lively rhythms of salsa, merengue, kizomba, bachata, cha-cha and reggaeton have captivated many Finnish people and drawn them to salsa lessons, parties and festivals.
