Contributed by Katie Sack on 02/13/2015 

Rueda De Casino (Rueda) 101– Share the fun and the excitement of Cuban style circle or square dancing in this introduction to Rueda dance. In Rueda de Casino multiple couples dance in a circle doing moves that are called out by the “cantante” or caller, who is also one of the circle dancers. The caller calls moves on the fly, celebrating dance and song, with everyone having a blast. Some of the moves are graceful and intricate while others are just plain fun, like “ping pong”, “el avion”, “salto”, “superman”, and “foto”. There are many different rueda styles, and you can dance rueda starting with as few as 2 couples to as many as 100, or even more! In this introductory 1 hour class you will be taught the rueda basic and some fun moves.
