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.
