DCBX Celebrates the People of Cuba

DCBX CELEBRATES The Music, Culture & Dance of Cuba.

Team DCBX traveled to Cuba in July.  The energy of the Cuban people is truly infectious.  Together with 28 time World Latin Dance Champion and Cuban native Alien Ramirez, they traveled to Holguin, Bayamo, Santiago De Cuba & Guardalavaca.The goal of the trip was to begin planning a Cultural Exchange scheduled for May of 2018.  The people of Cuba have so much to give.  Together with Alien Ramirez, DCBX plans to deliver an incredible journey into the Music, Hearts & Minds of the Cuban people.  The Cultural exchange will bring together the best dancers & creative minds in the world.

Below are some highlights of this amazing journey.
