Many of you have expressed an interest in learning casino rueda (a Cuban style of salsa), and I am happy to announce that Saturday, December the 14th, we will be having a special rueda bootcamp that will take you from knowing nothing about rueda to learning 30 different salsa casino turn patterns that you can do with your partner or with a group of people in a rueda.
The first two hours, we will cover the basics of getting a rueda going. We will review moves like dame, adios, enchufla, el uno, and candado. You will learn the meanings, hand signals, and how to execute each more easily as you change partners.
In the second two hours, you will learn how to build more complex turn patterns off of the vacila, a uniquely Cuban way of getting into a turn pattern. You will also learn how to call a rueda yourself so that where ever you and your friends go, you can have a rueda.
For this bootcamp, it would be helpful if you know how to do your basic step and cross body lead, but all levels are welcome. NO PARTNER NECESSARY.
After the bootcamp, we will be throwing a salsa party from 9pm-1am giving you an opportunity to try your new rueda skills in a social setting.
The 4-hour workshop is just $30. The party is just $5, so don't miss this opportunity to quickly learn such a fun style of dancing.
