Rueda In The Park Orange County. Cuban Salsa/Rueda Classes

Join our group trip to Puerto Rico which includes attendance to "El Dia Nacional de La Salsa" festival. We’ll stay in historic San Juan, visit Culebra Island, Rain Forest, the bioluminescent bay and other sites on the west side of the island. We’ll even visit Robert’s home where he grew up and meet with his parents. Note that this is not a week-long dance study trip and it is not a Cuban Salsa dance event but rather LA Style (linear) Salsa and Bachata. However, those of us who dance Rueda will squeeze in a few Rueda dances at the salsa festival and the salsa dance venues we’ll visit at night.


Hurry up and save your spot. We are filling up for this one! “Sin Salsa No Hay Paraiso”!
