What we're about

This group is for Chicagoland dancers of rueda de casino and casino, the Cuban style of dancing salsa; and for everyone who wants to learn. Rueda is all about community and all are welcome. There are a number of classes and rueda dancing events every week around town - some free, some with a cost. Most are drop-in and you don't need a partner to attend any of them. Each specific Meetup specifies whether all levels are welcome, or if it's an advanced or beginning class, and whether it's free or paid. We are happy to add classes - just let us know.
