Intro to Cuban Salsa Casino
Learn basic footwork, turns, patterns, solo dancing or “shines” and be introduced to proper posture, weight transfer, frame and partner connection.
You will be introduced to the basics of leading and following to Cuban Salsa music, known as “Timba” and have the chance to practice dancing to the proper timing or “tempo” with your partner and as a solo.
The basic skills learned in this class will be combined with the Beginner Casino Rueda and Styling classes.
Our Casino Rueda program has 4 levels, each increasing in complexity. In Casino Rueda Level 1, you will learn turns, patterns and be introduced to Casino Rueda, which is a Cuban form of Salsa often described as “Casino Wheel” or “Salsa Wheel” focused mostly on partner dancing.
Casino Rueda combines turn patterns with a simultaneous rotational movement of the wheel, while exchanging partners continually throughout the song. It is a great way to interact with other dancers, have fun and add variety to your routine, all at the same time.
