Casino Rueda Workshop
Saturday January 18, 1pm – 4pm
Casino Rueda is a Cuban form of Salsa often described as "Salsa in a Circle". Building on the basic Salsa step, it combines new turn patterns with a rotational movement of the whole circle, exchanging partners continually throughout the song with moves called out by the caller. It is a great way to interact with other people, have fun and add variety to your Salsa at the same time!

The intro hour is geared to those who have never danced Cuban style Salsa or Casino Rueda before or who would like to review.
2pm – 4pm: Casino Rueda (Level 3 – 5)
Building on the basic Salsa step, learn new turn patterns with a rotational movement of the whole circle. This workshop will include different turns, or "calls", then our September workshop.

"I just wanted to thank you again for such a lovely afternoon. I enjoyed every minute of the Women's Salsa Retreat! It flowed, it was never boring, and probably just the right amount of time. I usually end up working pretty much everyday. That was the first day I had off in forever. I thought I would treat myself to this retreat, because hey, I deserved it.....& I'm so glad I did !! I've been practicing ever since ;)"
