2023 is the 25th anniversary of Caledonia dance holidays in Santiago de Cuba, and next year our April trip will coincide with a very special event.  The 2023 Festival Internacional de Danza (FIDANZ) will be held over one week in late April and the Arts Council of Santiago de Cuba has announced that they will be dedicating FIDANZ 2023 to Caledonia Worldwide and our partner company, Ballet Folklorico Cutumba. This will be a unique trip celebrating our 25th anniversary, running from 16-30 April 2023. It will provide an opportunity to see a wide range of Cuban and invited dance company performances, in addition to our scheduled dance classes, group nights out and a special 25th anniversary event. An immersive dance experience you will never forget!

We still have three scheduled holidays available this year in November and December, with bookings for all of those dates already confirmed and just 6 places left for the December dates bridging Christmas and New Year. Dates are 6-20 Nov; 27 Nov – 11 Dec; 18 Dec 2022 – 01 Jan 2023. Cost is £1,650. Email us on info@caledoniaworldwide.com for further information.
