What we're about

This is a group for Latin music and dance lovers in Canberra.

We have weekly Rueda dance events, however, we are also open for other types of Latin music and dance events. It is up to each of us to make our desires true!

Saturday 3-4pm Salsa Rueda Free classes in the park

Maribelle is starting the Free Saturday Rueda lesson for beginners. Please arrive promptly at the beginning if you wish to participate. The event may end early if no one turns up at the start time. The same basic moves will be repeated each week so no worries about missing a week or two. Rueda means ‘circle’ in Spanish. This is a fun progressive dance to Latin (SALSA) music. Like square dancing, Rueda has a leader who ‘calls’ out the moves. The men lead and the women follow. Rueda is a very social dance. All moves learned in the Rueda circle can be danced one on one with a partner adding to a dancer’s repertoire of Salsa moves. Anyone with Salsa experience are welcome. Absolutely beginners are also welcome. Please note, this event is also listed in Facebook, so don't be discouraged by the RSVP numbers you may see here. Public Liability Waiver By RSVPing "Yes" or attending this event you acknowledge and accept that no public liability insurance covers this event and you indemnify the Group, its leaders, those assisting the organising and those participating in the activity against any injury or loss you may sustain or cause to others through your participation in the event.
