Arts and Minds Center. From Jul 18th through Jul 20th, 2008.The IFe-ILe Afro-Cuban Dance Festival features a series of dance and music workshops taught by both local and out-of-town master artists, bilingual discussions and dialogues on Cuban arts and culture, dance parties and a dance gala performance featuring workshop participants and teachers. The 9th edition of the festival will present over twenty dance and drumming workshops and will culminate with a spectacular Dance Gala featuring guest artists and IFE-ILE Afro-Cuban Dance Company.
In persistently promoting Afro-Cuban dance, IFE-ILE has established not only a cultural experience to local and visitors; but also a tradition that slowly has produced eager followers even from abroad.
The Arts and Mind Center, where the festival workshops and Gala will take place, is a gorgeous, Havana-style building with sun-filled dance studios, balconies and a spacious courtyard for outdoor events. It's located in the heart of Coconut Grove, two blocks from Coco Walk (a popular outdoor mall). Coconut Grove is an eclectic village and artist community made up of funky open-air cafes, cool stores and ethnic restaurants, infused with sidewalk artists, an exciting nightlife and cultural activities.
