Description

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!

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.

Really fun course. 100% recommend. I had never had any dance course before and it was quiet easy to follow. I was actually pleasantly surprised 😁

Nice intro to Salsa. Had much fun and learned a lot.
04. April 2024, 13:42 Teachers: Tristan Reinhard & Heidi LeeRoom: UZH Zentrum, GLT A-03
Tristan und Heidi sind ein tolles Team. Sie haben jede (auch noch so kleine) Frage beantwortet und waren immer gut drauf. Sie haben uns auch immer wieder ermutigt in die Bananenreiferei zu gehen, was zu tollen Abenden geführt hat.

Reviews the teachers got for other courses
12. April 2024, 09:42 Salsa Cubana 5 with Lena Meyer & Robin RenggliRoom: Hönggerberg, HXE
Lena and Robin are amazing teachers: competent, helpful and fun as well. Salsa 5 figures built upon moves from previous classes and are really enjoyable to dance once mastered. Can't wait for Salsa 6!
09. April 2024, 10:51 Salsa Ladystyle with Robin RenggliRoom: Hönggerberg, HXE
This was an amazing way to find ways to not only improvise but also feel more comfortable when improvising taught with lots of love to details by Robin. I would definitely sign up if you see her teaching the course!
07. April 2024, 22:37 Salsa Ladystyle with Robin RenggliRoom: Hönggerberg, HXE
Very useful if you want to learn more pasitos and choreo parts to implement into your dance. It was fun and insightful to also take some time to focus on isolations and details that do not get enough attention during the regular classes.
