Passionate Latin History Told Through Dance
Music and dance are such an integral part of Latin Culture that it’s almost impossible to separate one from the other. When you set foot in the tropics you can feel the syncopated rhythms and the exotic beats running through you. And there’s nowhere better to immerse yourself in the joyous expression of Latin Dance than in Cartagena.
The rich and varied history of Central and South America blend with the unique flavor of the Caribbean to create a completely unique mix of passion, expression, and motion joined at the hip with Cartagena. You can see this vibrant explosion of pride and witness the celebration of life across the city—street artists perform on the corners, dance troupes put on staged exhibitions, salsa clubs spill their energetic patrons onto the streets.
Cartagena is truly a city in motion!
Here traditional Latin Dances like salsa, cumbia, and champeta tell the story of the peoples and cultures that came before. With elegance and precise movements these dances harken back to simpler times when the celebration of life was delicately woven into the fabric of a physical history. But modern dance has come to Latin America including hip-hop, reggaeton, and salsa cali. These blend effortlessly with old styles in a melting pot of motion. Their sensual moves and high energy compliment a lust for life that is an essential part of Latin Culture.
