The Trust



The New Zealand Cuban Festival Trust oversees the management of the Festival.


The Trust’s aim is to grow Cuban dance and culture and to showcase this through the annual New Zealand Cuban Festival. The Festival celebrates everything Cuban and introduces Afro-Cuban music and dance programmes to the wider New Zealand and international public.


This event is a salute to Cuban Salsa and its roots – Cuba!  Recreating the passion and vibrancy of Cuba through the sounds of live Cuban Music and Dance, the Festival will inspire everyone who comes to learn more, dance more and fall in love with Cuban dance as well as bringing together international artists, instructors, schools and dancers to celebrate and share their love for Cuban dance and music.
