You plan to see Havana before it's paved with Starbucks and Hiltons — but please learn to dance a little first. Ebullient Afro-Cuban choreographer Kati Hernandez welcomes drop-ins at her rumba intensive. Revered among L.A. Cubaphiles, Hernandez teaches weekly "Oricha Therapy" at Downtown Dance & Movement, as well as community salsa jams and workshops from Leimert Park to San Francisco. But today it's all about la rumba, the "soul of Cuban music," and "la clave" — the key — of Latin dance. Live music, history and nuanced expression make it a cultural experience, explains Cuban-born Hernandez. For the full immersive experience, bring a handkerchief or scarf, which has its own curious folklore in this slyly salacious courtship dance. Open to all levels.
