"Whatever they’re dancing, you’ll find them a very welcome ray of tropical sunshine." The Telegraph

Danza Contemporanea de Cuba received overwhelming acclaim for their first ever major UK tour in 2010. The fresh, joyous and passionate programme of work featured the outstanding  Mambo 3XX1, created by resident choreographer and dancer George Céspedes  and nominated for both and Olivier and TMA award for his outstanding contribution to dance.

This internationally renowned company return in spring 2012 with a programme including the world premiere of a piece by award-winning choreographer and influencer of modern dance Itzik Galili, and another chance to experience the incredible Mambo 3XX1.

Danza Contemporanea de Cuba have for 50 years produced dancers of the highest level with a style evoking the sensual, mystical and raw heart of Cuban spirit.  Collaborations with international leaders in dance have combined with the Afro Caribbean and Spanish fusions to produce an electrifying, evocative and distinctly unique expression of all that is Cuban.

An exotic hybrid of contemporary, classical and Caribbean styles.”

At moments, Céspedes reminds you of the young Twyla Tharp in the fanatical, joyous precision with which he moves his dancers through a frenzy of kicking legs, shimmying ¬shoulders, clicking fingers and jiving arms. Brilliant.”
The Guardian

Drop-dead gorgeous, performed in such perfect synch, and with such sexy intensity, that you can’t tear your eyes away.”

Whatever they’re dancing, you’ll find them a very welcome ray of tropical sunshine.
