Have you ever tried Salsa? How about CUBAN salsa? Now is your chance to learn this exciting & fun dance! On Wednesday, August 4th, we are offering a Cuban-style Salsa BEGINNER introduction class! The class will start its curriculum from scratch, will be in a dance studio, & will be kept comfortably small to facilitate learning, so IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU HAVE NEVER DANCED! Also, having a partner is not required as we constantly rotate during the class. This format gives you the opportunity to practice your steps with various partners & prepares you for the social dance scene in a safe & pressure-free environment. The teachers, a male & female, teach progressive levels of Cuban Salsa Partner work, also known as Casino & Rueda de Casino - an interactive group dance where there are constant partner exchanges with fun patterns executed in unison! The new session of Cuban Salsa begins on Wednesday, 8/4! Wednesdays (August 4th - 25th): 7:00-8:00pm Beginner Cuban Salsa - Level 1 This class is for absolute beginners with little to no dance experience & will allow you to develop a strong foundation in Cuban Salsa in an extremely fun, stress-free atmosphere. In each 60-minute class of the four week series, students focus on developing dance fundamentals including rhythm, coordination, balance, & the specific technical aspects of Cuban Salsa, including basic steps & turn patterns, partnering technique, & the fundamental motions of Casino. Students will also learn social dancing etiquette, floorcraft, & partner safety in an extremely warm, relaxed, social & fun environment.

Rueda de Casino, an interactive group dance involving rapid partner exchanges, will also be introduced with the goal of increasing & fortifying responsiveness in both lead & follow roles, along with spatial orientation & kinesthetic awareness.
