Salsa Rueda is a captivating and energetic unique twist to traditional salsa. This style of salsa traces back to mid-20th century Cuba when salsa music and dance were flourishing on the island. Rueda ("wheel" in Spanish) is characterised by dancing in a circle with a group of partners, participants execute coordinated steps in response to the caller's cues. This type of salsa is known for creating a sense of unity and camaraderie among dancers as partners swap seamlessly and laughter fills the air.
Our event is divided into three parts: 1.5 hours of dance-filled fun!!
1. The Warm-Up (30 minutes): We'll kick things off with a 30-minute introduction to the world of salsa. You'll groove to the infectious beats, gradually getting into the rhythm, and receive guidance on mastering the fundamental steps, this should be a comfortable start to your dance journey.
2. Basic Rueda Group (30 minutes): Learn the steps as one. A dynamic and synchronised dance performed in a circle. As partners rotate, we'll step on some toes and have a laugh. Very quickly we will have formed our very own vibrant dance community.
3. Dance the night away (30 minutes): As the night unfolds, you will have the opportunity to freely dance on your own or with others and practice your newly acquired skills. Solidify your newfound talent and lose yourself in the music.
