We're back from our two-week intensive dance study trip to Cuba with the All Stars in Santiago and Proyecto Rueda de Casino in Havana. We learned a ton of new material – movement, turn patterns, footwork, and more, and we want to share of our favorite new material with the dance community in the Bay Area on Thursday, May 12th.
8pm Son Cubano (Beg - Adv)
Son is beautiful and elegant, simple in movements but sophisticated in style and rhythm (contratiempo). It is the 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 cover some fundamental steps and movements before moving on to more intermediate and advanced patterns that we learned in both Santiago and Havana.
9pm Int/Adv Rueda de Casino (All Stars Prep)
Founded in 2004, the Compania All Stars in Santiago are known throughout Cuba and around the world as one of the most vibrant and creative groups dancing Rueda today. In this class we'll show you our favorite Intermediate and Advanced moves that we learned from the All Stars to help you prepare for their upcoming visit to the Bay Area.
Classes will be held at City Dance Annex at 1420 Harrison Street in San Francisco. Click here for a map.
Pre-registration has closed, but it's not too late to take the classes - $15/one , $25/both.
