The smoking hot music and sultry moves of Havana's famed Tropicana nightclub come north, complete with a dance spectacular, live band and a dinner featuring Cuban favorites. CubaCaribe and Dance Mission Theater have put together this sizzling extravaganza, a trip through the island's entertainment history, all the way from traditional folk to the modern moves of today's top performers. Ramon Ramos Alayo's Alayo Dance Company stars in Explosión Cubana: Una Noche Tropical, with a live 10-person orquestra by Patricio Angulo. You'll be sitting on the stage as the action unfolds, and depending on the show date, either enjoying a three-course meal served at your table or a tapas menu of several small plates.
