Salseros 828 explores creative approaches to traditional Salsa dance, predominantly Cuban style. We perform and teach the Cuban-born “Salsa Casino Rueda”. The dance is structured in a circle-the translation of Casino Rueda is Casino Wheel. It was born in the Casinos of Havana in the 1950’s and is considered by many the original Salsa. Partners change and rotate according to calls made by the group leader. Called by some “…the sexy Cuban Salsa Square Dance”, Rueda is a dynamic and innovative social dance that is catching on in many major cities across the world. Rueda pulls together different communities into strong group dynamics...we have to pay attention to eachother to make the Rueda work and look amazing. The closer everyone is watching eachother, the more the excitement of the dance builds and the more interaction there is within the circle. Cuban dance is also looser and more open to personal style. Once you have the steps, you can embellish as you wish...quirks turn into strengths. After time spent immersed in la cultura Cubana, I understood why the dance was so important to the wellbeing of the culture. My aim is to teach the social function of Salsa along with the steps.
