This 8-week course will focus on the popular group version of Cuban Salsa called Rueda de Casino, a.k.a. Casino Rueda. This fun and energetic group dance consists of a series of figures and partner exchanges executed in synchronicity, usually within a circle formation with 2 or more couples where one person (the caller) calls out the names of the figures. A form of dance that started in Havana in the 1950s, it started gaining popularity at the casinos, where the different groups would get together to showcase, compete and enjoy it, hence the name given to the dance.
You will learn new and creative figures for Rueda as well as reviewing standard and well-established ones that are usually covered in our Cuban Salsa courses (from Beginner 2 to Intermediate 3 levels).
