Son Cubano Reviews
Thanks so much, we had a fantastic evening! I took my mum along and she was the first up dancing! By the end of the night most of the audience were at the front dancing which was great. It’s the first time that we have tried something like this and I am really pleased with how it all went, the workshop worked really well and lots of positive feedback.
