Going to Cuba changed my life. Cuba is a transformative place. If you’re open to transformation and inspiration you’ll love Cuba. Learning salsa, rumba, and AfroCuban folkloric dance in a country where the artform was created was both a blessing and a dream come true. My dance dreams came to life in Cuba. “I now feel that I’m a part of the global arts community and J Reve International provided this opportunity.

Ytasha Womack, Author & Filmmaker, Chicago, IL

Traveling internationally with J Rêve International to Cuba has allowed me to expand my knowledge and sensitivity of other cultures, build confidence and create and build relationships. It has allowed me to be adventurous, learn more about myself and develop new skills.

What an awesome way for me to connect two communities Harlem to Havana, priceless experience and lifetime friends were made.  I learned. I grew! I danced! I explored! I experienced! I journeyed to higher heights! An amazing trip of discovery, knowledge and connections!”
