Enjoy the summer with dance! It doesn’t really matter if it is you dancing or another because the best thing about dance is just to have a good time. So if you agree with us and you like contemporary dance run to the Great Theater of Havana to see the Carlos Acosta’s company with a Summer Season.

In Comedy, the closure of Virulo’s tour “Humor in Cuban music”. In Theater, you’re still on time to watch Dudo in Trianon theater, as well as the premier of Ten ways to call a dead dog in El Ciervo Encantado. In FAC…everything. In Cinema, 3D films in Chaplin movie-theater.
