This meetup group is for anyone who dances or wants to learn to dance Casino, Rueda de Casino, Cuban-style Salsa in the Twin Cities! For more information about us, visit: http://www.salsaruedapassion.com
Casino originated in Cuba in the 1950s and was brought to Miami in the early 90s. Rueda de Casino is danced by several couples in a circle formation ("rueda;" Spanish for wheel). Rueda de Casino is a super-fun, upbeat, and high energy group Casino dance where participants perform a variety of fabulous patterns in harmonious synchronization to the beats of Timba, Salsa, or any other genre of music that hits the 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7. Moves are called for all by the "cantante" (singer/leader) and many moves involve changing partners during the dance. It creates a cool kaleidoscopic effect for those watching, but mostly it is a blast for the dancers! All the moves that are performed in a Rueda can be performed on a one-on-one basis (aka Casino).
We started this meetup group so that Salsa lovers, especially those with an affinity to the Cuban style, can connect and we will all have more opportunities to dance!
Let's dance the nights away! (=
