Salsa Cubana has it all: singing melodies, moving rhythms, and a rich history and culture reflected in the yarning lyrics. With some exercising you will learn playful, spinning, and complex knotted figures. These mastered, enjoy the Cuban way of dancing as a couple or show off with your friends in a neatly synchronized Rueda de Casino. And that isn’t it, Salsa Cubana prepares you for numerous other Latin American dances like Son Cubano, Merengue, Bolero, and many more!

¡Ven a bailar!

Trailer for the Rueda de Casino:

In the first course level, you will be introduced to the basic steps and the rhythm of Salsa Cubana. As a couple, you will learn to move in open and closed positions - either as a leader or a follower. We will also show you how to switch elegantly between the basic steps. You will learn the first turns and finally have an introduction to Rueda de Casino.

This class was really fun! Really good for anyone wanting to try out Salsa for the first time as it’s only for 6 weeks. The teachers are super helpful and everyone in the class was motivated so the atmosphere was super nice:)
