This internationally known Afro-Cuban-Franco-Haitian folklórico dance group was founded in 1960 and currently appears at Teatro Galaxia (while its home base, the Teatro Oriente, is being renovated). You can see the group practice between 9am and 1pm Tuesday to Friday or attend an electrifying café teatro at 10pm every Saturday.

The 55-strong troupe perform such dances as the tumba francesa, columbia, gagá, guaguancó, tajona and conga oriental . It's one of the finest programs of its kind in Cuba and has toured the world from New York to New Zealand.
