Being Cuban is our identity, our origin, our trade-mark, and our brand. We’ve learned from childhood to celebrate what we have today and still aim for better in the future.
Our logo represents who we are and where we come from. The pearl inside the seashell represents Cuba in the Caribbean Sea. In the Afro-Cuban culture, both the seashell and the sea are associated to Yemayá, who is the goddess ruling the seas and a symbol of maternity and fertility. The pearl represents elegance, value and beauty. Everything the pearl represents is what we stand for and what we would like to transmit with every service-product that we sell.

Aurora Monge- Dance shoes designer
La Perla Experience is proud to welcome Aurora to the team! Handmade dance shoes! What’s not to like! Aurora Monge is originally from Barcelona-Spain. She has dedicated a long period of her dance carrier to Classical dance and Jazz. However, she always felt very attracted to the Salsa!
When going out dancing she was asked quite often about where she got her dance shoes from? People did get very surprised when she said she designed them herself! She realised people wanted to wear the shoes she had on, so she decided to start designing for the public as she was designing the best one for herself! Currently she is fully dedicated to the world of salsa.
She designs and sales at “Good Steps” (her company) not only dance shoes but also accessories. As a photographer and graphic designer, she understands what creativity and exclusivity means, which is why each of her shoes shows style and beauty. Her designs will make you feel unique, beautiful and comfortable. Ready to shine, and rock the Dance Floor?!
How it all started
La Perla Experience is a family-owned business with an unusual story.
After a couple of years being married in Denmark, Yanet wanted to celebrate her marriage and new life with family and friends back home in Cuba. As it turned out, the couple’s friends in Denmark wanted to come celebrate too! They were interested in experiencing her culture and dancing the Cuban way.
The busy bride set out to organized a group trip and dance lessons for her Danish friends and family, taking care of every detail! Meanwhile, she also planned her own dream wedding! In the end, she hosted 30 friends from Denmark, organized a wedding for 100 friends and family AND walked down the aisle in the dress she’d always dreamed of and said ‘I do’ with her true love.
Back in Copenhagen, her professor at Copenhagen Business Academy urged Yanet to use this experience for her thesis. What would happen if she blended her love and knowledge of Cuba, her passion and knowledge of dance and her talent for teaching, hospitality and organizing?
Long story short, she took her professor’s advice. Overcoming obstacles and learning a lot about the legality of starting a business in Denmark as a foreigner, Yanet founded La Perla Experience! What started as a dream wedding became a dream came true and a cozy dance community connecting Denmark, Cuba and Spain.
In total, La Perla Experience has hosted 6 International Dance Holidays and taught hundreds of people in Denmark to love Dance. It’s been a lot of hard work but when you’ve planned a dance holiday AND a wedding from a thousand miles away, like Yanet has, it seems only natural!
