In 2016, Carlos will establish a small company of young local dancers at the Dance Centre. By the summer of 2016, they will be ready to perform a repertoire of contemporary pieces for Cubans and tourists.
Other local and international companies will also perform at the Dance Centre such that, by 2020, when the Centre is fully operational, there will be at least 3-4 performances per week in a 530-seat theatre.
The Centre will also run an estimated six week-long workshops per year for paying guests.
Visitors will not only be able to tour the grounds of the Dance Centre, but also observe the Company’s dance classes. Merchandise and food will also be available.
Cuba’s tourist market is fast-growing, with 3 million visitors in 2013.
A conservative estimate is that 150,000 people will visit the Dance Centre each year.
