All Levels Casino Rueda Workshop

with Corey Eiland

12:00pm, Saturday, May 12, 2018

Rueda de casino is a Cuban dance style born in the 1960's which is danced in both Cuba and the United States, but is growing in popularity worldwide. Its unique call-and-response style where partners form a circle and perform dance moves in unison is irresistibly fun and easy to learn. Take this workshop to learn about its similarities and differences to Salsa, how to respond to (and call!) dozens of different moves, and how to join the circle on Wednesday night's Salsa Atomica! A partner is not required for this class, but if you bring one, be prepared to share them with everyone! All dancers will be in a circle changing partners frequently during the dance.

No partner needed!


Class Schedule (12:00 PM - 3:15 PM)

  • 12:00 PM  Registration / Check-in
  • 12:15 PM  Basics and Styling: Casino and it's musical counterpart timba have much in common with Salsa, but are also very different. Learn the body styling, several of the basic moves, and what makes them different from our familiar style of Salsa.
  • 1:00 PM  New Moves: The rueda or "wheel" is what makes the dance so fun to do -- everyone in the class gets to dance together during the same song! Get used to responding to a small set of calls with increasing difficulty.
  • 1:45 PM  Rueda Complicada: Many moves have more advanced variations that make them trickier. If you're familiar, expect moves such as setenta and beyond in terms of difficulty.
  • 2:30 PM  Conclusion: The last 45 minutes will be dedicated to a mix of styling, new moves, new combinations, and of course, rueda de casino as a group.
