Love Latin Dance or want to learn? We have two classes for you and your family and friends. No partner is required and no experience is needed. Wear dance shoes, smooth leather soled shoes, or smooth soul tennis shoes.
Casino salsa (Cuban style) 7-8 pm beginners, 8-9 pm intermediate/advanced. $5 per person. Please contact Jonathan at 661 618-1105 to verify location of the class. The group has outgrown several indoor venues (we usually have over 40 dancers per class). As of April 1st, 2015, we are meeting outdoors at a local park.
Since Casino dance does not use spins, any smooth surface is adequate. Wear flat soled tennis shoes/deck shoes since we are on asphalt/concrete.
Casino is great for timing, performing teams, and transitions easily to bachata, LA salsa, and cumbia.
Jonathan and Janey teach for the City of Santa Clarita, Parks and Recreation four sessions a year. Each session are comprised of six consecutive Thursdays. Winter, Sprng and Fall are Salsa (LA style) and the summer session is Latin (bachata, cumbia, and merengue- the foundations of modern Latin club dances). $50 per person for each series. Sign-up through the Seasons catalog. Go on-line to City of Santa Clarita Seasons:
Go to http://www.santa-clarita.com/index.aspx?pag... find "Search Classes." The courses are entitled Salsa or Latin Club Dance. Beginners class is 6:30-7:30 pm and Intermediates are 7:45-8:45 pm at Santa Clarita Park (Seco Cyn near Pamplico).
Youth are permitted if a parent or guardian is present (the parent/guardian can sit an watch or take the class as well). No partner is necessary.
Casino Performing Team
Intermediate Casino dancers are invited to ask about joining our local performing team. We perform at local and sometimes national/international congresses. this is the best way to get detailed instruction, learn complex and simple patterns, and inspire and contribute to our local community.
