Cuba Review Workshops

Cuba Review Workshops

Symbolic Dance (map)

This December Ryan and Sidney are in Cuba studying and leading our Cuba Dance Study Trip with the All Stars from Santiago. We'll be back in January with lots of fun new material – movement, turn patterns, footwork, and more, and we'll be sharing our favorite material with the dance community in the Bay Area on Saturday, January 20th.

3:00pm Son de Santiago
Son is beautiful and elegant, simple in movements but sophisticated in rhythm and style. It is a primary root of Salsa and Casino, and many of the best dancers incorporate movements, turns, timing, and style from Son. In this class we'll briefly review some fundamental steps and movements before moving on to more intermediate and advanced patterns that we learned from the All Stars.

4:15pm Intermediate All Stars' Salsa and Rueda de Casino
In this class we'll show you our favorite moves from each of the Intermediate Salsa and Rueda de Casino groups. (To attend this class you must have completed Level 2 of the RCR curriculum.)

5:30pm Advanced All Stars' Salsa and Rueda de Casino 
Jorge Luna Roque, the director of the All Stars, is nothing short of a Casino genius. While remaining true to the traditions and spirit of the dance, he has developed a unique, intricate, dynamic style that is as challenging as it is fun. In the final class while we'll show you our favorite Advanced moves that we learned from Jorge in our December trip. (To attend this class you must have completed Level 3 of the RCR curriculum.)

Classes will be held at Symbolic Dance at 672 S Van Ness Ave in San Francisco.

ODC (map)

Please join us for our next Monthly Salsa and Rueda Party. We throw social dance parties once a month, and they're always fun – friendly people enjoying great Cuban music and dance together, huge ruedas, a few drinks and some yummy snacks, all in the beautiful and spacious ODC Dance Studio.

Our parties start at 9:30pm, right after our two Multi-Level Cuban Salsa and Rueda classes, which feature 4 separate levels taught by 4 instructors at both 7:30pm and 8:30pm.

Parties are FREE with any class that night, just $5 otherwise. Please bring something to eat and/or drink to share - it's a potluck. And please spread the word to your friends and bring your favorite people to the party with you!
