Rueda De Casino/Cuban Salsa In Orange County

At this time when the news is dominated by Coronavirus, we are closely following the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we are being socially responsible and doing our part to keep you and our communities safe. We have postponed our classes until California state allows nonessential businesses to re-open. The safety of our community and the quality of the events we deliver is our top priority. We wish everyone remains safe, and that everyone applies diligence to keep this virus at bay. May we all be healthy, protected, and blessed. Una Bulla!

  • 7PM-8PM - BEGINNERS LEVEL 4-WEEK SERIES. Students must REGISTER for our 4-Week Series. You will learn the basic Casino/Rueda de Casino moves from our syllabus in just 4 weeks (repeating 4-week series may be necessary depending on your dance progress). Our goal is for you to learn the basic footwork and technique to prepare you for dancing basic Rueda de Casino moves. This will also equip you with the lead/follow skills to dance basic Casino/Cuban Salsa with a dance partner (since many of the basic moves can be danced outside of a Rueda circle).  SORRY, NO WALK-INS AFTER THE FIRST CLASS. 

  • Stay tuned for our next beginners series which we will announce after the Covid-19 quarantine ends.

  • 8PM-9PM - INTERMEDIATE LEVEL. You will learn intermediate moves from our syllabus - and beyond. Both Leads and Followers should know and execute the following moves (without guessing) to be able to participate in intermediate level class. Our goal is for you to continue learning proper footwork and technique as well as intermediate-advanced Rueda de Casino moves. We also review lead/follow skills that you can apply when dancing Casino with a dance partner outside of the Rueda circle.
