You may crave a Cuban cigar instead of just a cigarette after some of the sexy shenanigans of Cuban Flow but with only two shows, you’ve already missed this pumping dance presentation.
Piter Pantoja Lopez & Cruz Vazquez Borges teamed with seven Tropicana dance girls to wiggle their tush, simulate sex, and flaunt a visually pleasing array of colourful costumes, beautiful bodies and delightful dance moves.
From traditional to modern, there was enough variety to keep the show entertaining, and the small amount of audience interaction didn’t slow the pace. What did, unfortunately, was the one poor attempt at a comedy skit around making a Mojito – it was poorly scripted, badly executed, and ground on for far too long. Worst of all, it was completely out of place as the only – literally – show stopping piece.
All the cast had good stage presence while dancing and they worked the audience nicely. The Havana beats were infectious and the boys, in particular, could really move. Running less than an hour though, it was over far too quickly and felt like an entrée rather than the feast it could have been.
