Pre-registration and prepayment are preferred and highly recommended. This is important so we know if you are signing up as a lead or as a follow to avoid having too many of one or the other. It also allows us time to call in favors from experienced friends so you will have a dance partner should our numbers become uneven. Since we teach in a progressive class style (everyone in your group moves together to the next level), we do not accept drop-ins after the first day. Lucky for you, we open classes for new students every other month!
Currently, no. Although we have the ability to teach other dances, our dance company prefers to focus on and perfect Cuban Style Salsa aka: Casino as well as Rueda de Casino. We feel that it is a lot more fun, easier to learn and just way cooler. However, we are planning to add more dances in the future if we see a need. in the meantime, we fully support other dance teachers in the area and will gladly suggest amazing instructors that focus on those particular dances. Stay tuned and watch us GROW!
The music that we absolutely LOVE is called Timba! it is essentially salsa but less romantic and a lot more funky. You will get to know DJ Warapo who DJ's Most cuban social events in LA and SD. He's amazing and always keeps things fresh and familiar at the same time. DJ WaltDigz out of San Francisco has a Timba Radio Show on Twitch.tv on Tuesdays where you can hear all the newest music. Click the link below for an example of the music.
We will definitely have social events in the future as our Rueda de Casino community grows here in Temecula. Right now, you will find us at various events around southern California. If we are not already at a large event in San Diego or Los Angeles, we will be wherever there is "salsa" music playing around Temecula and surrounding areas. If you know of an event and are not sure if we heard about it, visit our Facebook page and let us know! We would love to attend!
We don't have an age limit per say, but due to the nature of this dance we recommend that the student be at least 13 years old and accompanied by an adult over 18 years old.
