Have you ever found yourself at those "Salsa Clubs" with no one to dance with? Well now you can dance with an entire group of people at the same time!
When you see more than two people all dancing salsa together, they are probably dancing “Salsa Rueda” or what is officially known as “ Rueda de Casino.”
It is a lot like American square dancing, but for salsa and in a circle not a square. In the rueda, two or more couples dance cuban style salsa patterns that are directed by one of the dancers, known as the caller. The caller will call out different Cuban salsa patterns that might involve switching partners, clapping, yelling, stomping, or just about any movement your creative mind can think of. So please, leave your salsa steps at home and come learn brand new casino steps because it is an entirely different dance and so much more fun!
We are dedicated casineros! We were trained in Escondido and North County with some AMAZING dancers that have a strong desire to grow the Rueda de Casino community. Our goal is to have so many more casineros to dance with when we go out in Southern California. We want to engage with more people who love Timba music and all things Cuban. There is so much infectious joy in our dance community that we find ourselves making new friends, having parties all the time, and traveling to cuban music festivals and dance congresses in other states and countries. We want you to join us too!
