3:45pm Salsa Workout & Suelta (Footwork and Body Movement)

Ryan will work separately with leads and Sidney with follows on adding styling to Casino (Cuban Salsa) partnering combinations. At the end of class leaders and followers will practice their new styling together while partner dancing.

5:45pm Son, Rhythm, and Musicality
Son is the primary root of Casino (Cuban Salsa) and is known for its elegant style and satisfying rhythm (contratiempo a.k.a 'on 2'). We'll work on the fundamental movements and patterns of Santiago-style Son and show you some clave-based footwork to add to your partner dancing.
