Salsa is a social dance form with inspired moves and fun, infection music. With origins in Cuba, Salsa is now danced around the world. In this course students will learn the rhythm, basic footwork, hip, and shoulder movements of Cuban Salsa. We will form “Una Rueda”, or circle, and dance in pairs with a caller calling moves and the rapid swapping of partners. Rueda is a fun and dynamic dance with fitness benefits like: cardiovascular endurance, improved balance and body awareness as well as memory and coordination. Cuban salsa is unique because of its extensive use of other popular and folkloric Afro-Cuban dance forms. Students will gain a deep appreciation and understanding of Cuban culture in this class. Come prepared to dance!
