Meet G.A.

I’m  a Charleston, S.C.,-based entrepreneur, dancer, and  erstwhile writer with a penchant for traveling. Check out my Linked In profile for full resume and clips of other published work. For salsa dancing in Charleston, check out my studio Holy City Salsa.

I get a LOT of emails about dance in Cuba. I do the best I can to answer them and answer questions, but I am not a travel agent and I haven’t been to Cuba since 2015.

As far as I know, the Catedra de Danza where I trained is not in operation, but you can try contacting the director (from when I was there) at

I’ve never been but I hear that Prodanza, a school run by Alicia Alonso’s daughter in Havana, accepts international students and this is a contact I was able to track down for the school: I don’t know how current these are but good luck!

Happy Dancing!

    Hi Georgia; I am thinking of doing some heavy-duty ballet or modern dance classes in Havana and was hoping to ask you a few questions about your experience. Is there any way you could send me your email address so I can write to you outside of this post? Thanks!

    Hi Georgia. I enjoy reading your blog. I am hoping you can help me with some info. My 17 year old daughter is going to la habana in December to visit her brother. She wants to return to Cuba fall 2015 to study dance. I have been having a hard time finding info re classes such as the one you took at escuela nacional de ballet. May I contact you for guidance.

    Good Morning Georgia!
    I am so grateful for your amazing Zumba sessions at Benefitfocus. Your energy and positive attitude were infectious. Thanks to you and the class, I lost 5 pounds over the six weeks, without changing my eating habits, and am back on track to being lean and healthy again. Eagerly awaiting your return for more Zumba!

    Hi Georgia,

    I have a similar question to mom above. I have been taking ballet classes most of my life (although far from being professional), and will be traveling to la habana next week. I’ve been able to message modern and contemporary choreographers about taking classes, but I really want to take a few ballet classes. Do you have a recommended contact via phone or email you can refer me to so I can get in touch with someone there about schedule and the best level classes to take?

    Thank you,
