Description

Salsa Cubana has got it all: phenomenal music, diverse rhythm patterns and a rich historical and cultural background, which is brought to you throughout the lyrics. You only need some basic steps to start dancing as a couple and then learn any of the playful, slightly rotating figures, which are typical for Salsa Cubana. This dance opens the door to related Cuban dance styles like Son, Rumba or the group dance called “Rueda de Casino”. Salsa Cubana provides the Caribbean feeling we are all longing for - so come, and dance with us!

In the second course we will strengthen our understanding for the Salsa rhythm and therefore be able to start dancing in the middle of a song. You will be introduced to “vuelta a la derecha” (right turn) and the figures “setenta” and “sombrero”. Depending on the progress of the participants, we will look at more figures.
