Rueda can be described as a group dance to modern day Salsa music.  Although originally from Cuba, Rueda is danced all across the world and at all levels of difficulty.  The group is composed of couples that dance in unison and in a circle.  The circle has a leader or caller, who is responsible for calling the steps that will be danced by the group.  The caller dances with the group as well.  Although many of these steps can be danced by a single couple alone, the magic of Rueda is the ability of the group to execute each step in perfect synchrony.  Another facet of Rueda is the opportunity for the dancers to frequently change partners during the dance.  This ensures that everyone will learn to dance with each other regardless of ones level of dancing.  Lastly, the personality of the caller matters a great deal to the flow of the Rueda since it is the caller who dictates the steps.  Moreover, when the caller learns to anticipate the music and adjust his calls, the dance becomes a beautiful piece of art representing team work.  

Ultimately, as the number of dancers increase and their skills improve, we anticipate being able to run multiple circles according to their respective levels.  Therefore, we invite all levels of Rueda dancers to join us as we build this community of dancers.
