If you've ever been to Cuba, you'll know music and dance permeates through every facet of the city of Havana. 

"Baila Havana is a short visual documentary presenting a portrait of Havana's traditional dance culture. I arrived in Cuba with no plans and a vague hope of filming Cuban dancers. I met and made friends with dancers from Baila Habana, one of the city's dance schools and together we made this film. Shooting on and off over 7 days we wandered around the city seeking out amazing locations and light."
