Please help by donating to our Master Cuban Instructor, Silfredo La O's film project. The trailer of his film will be highlighted at the San Diego Film Festival. Help spread the word so he can reach his funding goal. He had opened his house for Rumba Party and has given so much to us. Let's all pay it forward by helping out on his film project. Una Bulla!!
Many of our Cuban Dance instructors are starting to teach a new series this March. Interested in Rueda de Casino? Get plugged in and learn a fun way to dance salsa where you switch partners and dance with everyone in one song! Similar to American square dancing where there is a caller telling you what dance move to do. It promotes diversity and it's a dance that makes you smile. The picture below is a great example.
There is also AfroCuban Dance offered by some of our Cuban master instructors (FROM Cuba!) in San Diego. For those looking to add Cuban body movement and styling, the AfroCuban dance classes are excellent ways to improve your dance flow, and better understand the music/dance call and response connection. So many benefit of learning AfroCuban dance. Both Rueda de Casino and AfroCuban dance should be taken together to maximize your learning of Cuban dance in general. And we are lucky in San Diego to have both!
March Madness will soon be upon us. So take some time to exercise those Latin moves before you fill in the brackets and watch all your teams lose... hopefully they go into higher brackets.
