    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.

    You will also learn how to detect different instruments within the music, such as the conga, cowbell
    and how to interpret them in different ways to create a totally different feeling and
    styling to your dancing.

    We will end with a more challenging, fun and musical choreography using all the elements mentioned
    above plus how to play with the voice and trumpets of the song. You don’t want to miss this!

    burning lots of calories? Then this is the workshop for you!

    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!!!

    Workshop Program:

    1 Registration
    20 minutes to register starting at 6:30pm
    (the faster that we register the sooner that we start the workshop)

    2 Timing and Musicality
    -Introduction to music and understand when to start and continue with the timing thru the whole song.
    -How to listen to the conga, piano and cowbell and different ways to interpret them to create a different feeling while you are dancing.
    -Learn how these instruments guide you to follow and lead with precision.
    -Learn steps that you can incorporate to the music.

    Be prepared to have a great and very different experience!
