Fundamentals of Cuban Salsa/Casino & Rueda de Casino, Part 1 (All Levels)
This class is structured for beginners with little-to-no dance experience and will allow you to develop a foundational knowledge of Cuban Salsa, also known as Casino, which originated in Cuba in the 1950’s and predates all styles of Salsa by at least two decades. Casino incorporates a diverse mixture of rhythms & dances such as Danzón, Mambo, Chachachá, Son, & Rumba and is defined by angular partner position changes as opposed to North American styles which have distinctive linear positions. It can be danced one-on-one as well as in a circular formation, or Rueda/wheel, in which dancers execute figures in unison while exchanging partners in dynamic and creative ways. This 90-minute workshop will focus on the specific technical aspects of Cuban Salsa, including basic steps and turn patterns, partnering technique, and the fundamental motions of Casino & Rueda de Casino.Must Reserve Space By Clicking the Payment Link Below$10 Deposit to Reserve Your SpaceSpaces are limited!

Do you ask yourself one or more of these questions?…
How can I improve my leading and follow?
Why do some of the turn patterns I learned in class don’t work in social dancing?
How can I dance complete sync with my partner to make all the moves look and feel smooth and easy?
How can the instruments help me fix all of the issues from the questions above?
How can I improvise more moves when I dance Salsa in Social Events?
I want to talk about the common issues that happen on the dance floor and more important how to fix them. I’ve been dancing/teaching for more than 14 years and it took me all this time to find out the answer to all the questions myself…
Now I want to share with you my experience and knowledge (which took me years to learn) and explain what helped me the most to improve my dancing and summarize this into a workshop!
If you are asking yourself all of these questions and want to improve your dancing then this will be the perfect workshop for you! Of course, we are going to cover much more than that, as well as answer any questions that you have on your mind.
We encourage you to bring them to the workshop!!!
