Rueda De Casino, Cuban Style Salsa Classes, taught by Carolina
"Rueda" (Wheel) is Cuban style SALSA danced in groups of 4-20+ people in a continuous wheel of dynamic motion with exciting synchronized & coordinated moves, clapping, stylish rhythmic punctuations, vocalizations, and seamless changing of partners and formations.
Warning: this is NOT Ballroom Salsa. It is funkier, more earthy, more "street", retains it's African roots, engages torso and shoulders more, has a completely different directional and more oppositional dynamic, and is flavored by historical dances of Cuba. It is rooted in the compelling rhythms & sounds of "TIMBA" music - which shares parentage with Salsa music, but is different. Timba is a very elegant & innovative fusion of polyrhythmic & polyharmonic Afrocuban sounds with Hip Hop and Rock & Roll influences rolled into it. Come get swept away by the pulse of this contagious form and open up a new world of styling, choreography & connection with the rhythm, the music and your fellow dancers.
