Burak Can founded Havana Dance Academy to inspire and educate people with his passion for dance. Although offering technical lessons, he hopes to also inspire and nurture people's interest in social dancing. Havana Dance Academy is built on the idea that everyone can dance, and 

should dance for the enjoyment of the music, people and 

atmosphere. It is with this philosophy that Burak Can hopes 

he can provide technical and informative lessons but also encourage the social aspect of Latin dance, so that everyone, 

no matter their time schedule and background can learn in a relaxed, fun environment.
