Fuákata was founded by Christopher Rogicki in October of 2007 to promote Cuban-style Salsa and Timba music in the NYC area and beyond. The group is comprised of both a student and semi-pro team and is the only one in the tri-state area which specializes in Casino and Rueda de Casino. Fuákata strives to showcase the beauty of Cuban Salsa, its evolution, and the diversity of styles it embodies. Co-directed by Evelyn Ramirez, Chris and Evelyn have traveled everywhere between San Francisco, México, Cuba, and Germany to teach, perform, and train with some of the best instructors and choreographers in the world. Notable performances of Fuákata include the San Francisco Rueda Festival, Latino Heritage month events at Columbia University and NYU, Cuban Salsa Nights at Iguana's, Latin Quarter, Havana Central, and the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC, NBC4 in Providence, RI, and SALSAtlanta 10. Fuákata currently offers four progressive levels of classes in Rueda de Casino, Casino partnerwork, and Salsa Suelta on a weekly basis in midtown Manhattan. Check us out:

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
