CUBAN SALSA DANCE CLASS

June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely

Dance instructors Andrés Veranes and Valentina Suaréz, from Cuban and Colombian origins respectively, actually met on the dance floor, now married! They will be teaching Cuban style dancing, similar to Salsa but with Cuban moves and Cuban music. The focus will be on Cuban “Rueda de Casino” moves and “Timba” music (also known as Cuban Salsa), but we will also touch on Cuban Son, Cha Cha Cha and Afro Cuban or Rumba. The objective will be to first familiarize dance students with Cuban music so that the basic steps will come naturally, and then start introducing a variety of dance moves and partnering turns so as to make it all the more fun and exciting. Hopefully you will all come to love Cuban music and dance. There is an old saying in Cuba: “el que no baila es porque no tiene zapatos!” (If you don’t dance it’s because you’re not wearing any shoes!)

$15 dollars at the door
