Level 1 - Beginner
An introduction to Cuban Salsa (Casino) as well as the beginner motions of Rueda de Casino. Foundation motions include Guapea, Dile Que No, Vacilala and Enchunfla plus a ton of Rueda moves. No experience required ... meant for a total beginner in Cuban Salsa. Check out the curriculum.
Level 2 - Intermediate Beginner
Level 2 continues to build on the fundamentals of Cuban Salsa (Casino) by adding basic motions, such as Exhibela, Adios and Siete. Plus, the class includes more Rueda de Casino motions. Check out the curriculum.
Level 3 - Advanced Beginner
Level 3 rounds out our "fundamentals" courses, and includes the last set of fundamental motions for Cuban Salsa (Casino), such as Guancola and Ronde. It also adds more Rueda de Casino motions. The class focuses on building good rhythm and a solid foundation for couples' dancing. Check out the curriculum.
Level 4 - Intermediate
Level 4 polishes those fundamental motions of Cuban Salsa (Casino), and incorporates how dancers can develop good lead and follow techniques, Casino style and flavor, footwork and body motion, and attaining a higher level of skill in both rueda and couples dancing. Check out the curriculum.
Level 5 - Intermediate
Level 5 helps you better develop your Casino style and fine-tunes elements of social dancing, rhythm - especially for Timba - and adds more higher-level Rueda de Casino motions into the mix. Check out the curriculum.
The class is a 1 hour per week, 4-week class on movement for feet, arms, chest, hips, legs, and ears geared toward perfecting your skills with Casino. Class is open to all skills levels, but we recommend at least a year of experience with Casino.
Practica - Casino and Rueda for Fun
For those who have been past our level 5 class, we've introduced a new class focused on the entertainment aspects of dancing rueda and casino. Sure, we'll spend a little bit of time brushing up on your skills, but this class offers the rare opportunity to do a lot of dancing, mostly rueda. Less study...more entertainment.
