This meetup is for anyone who dances Salsa Rueda in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St Paul, MN) or wants to start!
Rueda is a super-fun, upbeat, and high energy group Salsa dance where participants perform a variety of fabulous patterns in harmonious synchronization.
"Salsa rueda de casino" originated in Cuba in the 1950s. It is danced by several couples in a circle formation ("rueda" is Spanish for wheel). Moves are called for all by the "lider" (caller) and many moves involve changing partners during the dance. It creates a cool kaleidoscopic effect for those watching, but mostly it's a blast for the dancers!
It's great for anyone - singles, couples, or groups - all can join the rueda. No need to come with a partner, and no pressure of asking or being asked to dance - everyone dances with everyone!
We started this meetup group so that rueda lovers can connect and we will all have more opportunities to dance! You will find FREE classes and other learning opportunities posted here as events, and we encourage people planning to go out to a dance venue to post that as an event so that other rueda dancers can join and you will know that there will be people there who want to join in ruedas!
