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 course 4 you will get familiar with patterns like “sacala”, “coca cola” and “lasso”. We will add the figure “familia” to our repertoire, which consists of the cousin “prima”, the sister “hermana” and the aunt “tia”. As soon as we have reached those goals, we will be able to look at a variety of advanced figures like “setenta complicado”.  If you haven’t already, after course 4 it’s high time to hit the Salsa dance floors!
