SUNDAY, NOV 16TH
Intro to Son Cubano (All levels)
12:00pm
Son is the style of dance and music that directly preceded Salsa in Cuba, but it is still a living tradition in itself. It is beautiful and elegant, simple in movements but sophisticated in rhythm and style. Many of the best salsa dancers incorporate movements, turns, timing, and style from son into their salsa dancing. In this class you'll learn the characteristic rhythm of Son (called "contratiempo" or "on 2") as well as some fundamental steps, movements, and turn patterns.

Dancing with Clave: Changing Time (All levels)
1:00pm
The clave is the rhythmic essence, the "key," of salsa music. In this class you'll learn to identify the two key distinctions that make the four types of clave used in salsa: 3-2 vs. 2-3 and son vs. rumba. We'll use this knowledge of the clave to help us switch back and forth between dancing "on 1" ("a tiempo") and "on 2" ("a contratiempo"). And beyond the how of switching time, we’ll delve into why you would want to switch: what cues to listen for and respond to in the music. It is highly recommended (but not required) to take the Intro to Son class prior to this class.

Santiago-style Salsa and Rueda (Intermediate/Advanced)
2:00pm
Santiago is the birthplace of Son Cubano and continues to be a center of innovation in both dance and music. Ryan and Sidney traveled to Santiago in July, studying from several different groups and teachers. In this class we'll show you our favorite new moves from Santiago, both one-on-one Salsa patterns and group moves for the Rueda.

Salsa Workout and Body Movement (All levels)
3:00pm
In this energetic, full-body workout, we explore the roots and relatives of salsa. We warm up with basic footwork and move on to explore more complex rhythmic variations and related dance styles (such as Son, Mambo, Rumba and Cha-cha-chá) building towards completing the class with a dynamic and fun choreography. We will focus more on the relationship between Rumba and Salsa on Saturday, and the relationship between Son and Salsa on Sunday.

Casino-on-Tile After-Workshop Timba House Party in Oceanside

We are taking our Casino-on-Cardboard inside and calling it Casino-on-Tile!!!
In celebration of our guest rueda instructors (Ryan & Sidney) visiting us in beautiful San Diego, they want to get to know you and dance with you. We have reserved Roi Brignac's Clubhouse in Oceanside for a Timba House Party. The Cuban salsa momentum is getting stronger on the North side of San Diego. Come make the trip to Oceanside and dance to timba and son Cubano and Cubaton with us.

The Clubhouse, where the party is taking place is part of Roi's apartment/Condo Complex. It has a HUGE community space with a tile floor and a kitchen. Thanks to Roi, we have a place to dance to Cuban music (Timba - old school and new). Ryan and Sidney are bringing the tunes to play tomorrow night. POTLUCK style. Family friendly as well!

Bring your favorite wine or craft beer and a food pairing. We are all a bunch of healthy conscious casineros so any healthy dishes with lots of protein are very welcomed. We will provide the iced bottled water. Get ready for some off-the-chain ruedas with Ryan and Sidney. They are amazing callers. We are gonna shake it hard what your mama gave you!!!

Below are the details:
WHAT: Dance party after the Saturday workshops
WHEN: Saturday, November 15th from 6pm-10pm
WHERE: Roi's Clubhouse (private residential community space) on the first floor - listen for the timba music, condo complex front door will be open in front.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS:
SATURDAY, NOV 15TH
Partnering for Cuban-style Salsa (Two Levels, Beginning and Int/Adv)
1:00pm
Cuban-style salsa (sometimes called casino) is dynamic and circular, even when not danced in a circle (rueda). In this class we will teach some of our favorite one-on-one turn patterns (traditional and original). Ryan and Sidney will teach separately, so there will be two different levels dancing simultaneously (beginning and intermediate/advanced).

Origins of Rueda: Moves from 1957 to 1964 (Levels 2 and up)
2:00pm
Rueda de Casino was first created by a group of teenagers in Havana in the late 1950s and early 1960s. In July, Ryan and Sidney traveled to Havana to meet and dance with several of the original dancers of the style (called "Fundadores," now in their 60s and 70s). In this class you'll learn many of the moves from the early days, including Derecha-izquierda, Bótala p'atrás, Enróscate, and Bikini.

Musicality: Dancing to the Rhythms of Salsa and Timba
3:00pm
Cuban music is incredibly rich and rhythmically layered, offering us a great abundance of material to draw upon as dancers. In this class you'll learn some of the most common accents in timba how to express these rhythms with your body, primarily through changes in footwork. This rhythmic understanding will enhance your enjoyment of the music and invigorate your dancing, both in the rueda and with a partner.

Salsa Workout and Body Movement (All levels)
4:00pm
In this energetic, full-body workout, we explore the roots and relatives of salsa. We warm up with basic footwork and move on to explore more complex rhythmic variations and related dance styles (such as Son, Mambo, Rumba and Cha-cha-chá) building towards completing the class with a dynamic and fun choreography. We will focus more on the relationship between Rumba and Salsa on Saturday, and the relationship between Son and Salsa on Sunday.

San Diego Rueda Timba House Party Potluck in Oceanside and Rueda Flash Mob - Sat. Nov 8th

Greetings Mi Gente!

If the euphoric effects of Noche Cubana are leaving you nostalgic and having withdrawls .... and wanting more casino and timba, get ready for some more fun!! Yes! FOR THE FIRST TIME, North County San Diego is stepping up offering you a timba house party in Oceanside!!! Thanks to Roi Brignac, we've got the Clubhouse in his condo/apartment complex this Saturday from 6pm-10pm.

It is an awesome space to dance and have a potluck. Plenty of parking across the street in the parking lot. We ask everyone to bring a dish and drinks to share. Bring your best pairing of wine/special crafted beer and cheese or healthy blends of food, snacks, and drinks. Home made meals with lots of protein options are encouraged.

We also have a visiting casinero from New Mexico, a featured DJ at the San Francisco Rueda Festival, Patrick T. Noble known in the timba congresses as DJ PA Trix, in town to offer his playlist of the newest timba and mixing the old school timba with the new stuff for our party.

BUT wait! There's MORE! We have been asked to do a flash mob rueda at the Dancessence Studio in Carlsbad. Same routine from Noche Cubana we might spice it up with some other fun moves. This will take place at 8pm. We will squeeze a bunch of people into a few cars (only 9 miles away) and we will invade Dancessense Studio's dance party and do a flash mob rueda/performance (one song and leave). Then afterwards, we go back to Oceanside and party it up until 10pm.

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS:
    SATURDAY, NOV 15TH
    Partnering for Cuban-style Salsa (Two Levels, Beginning and Int/Adv)
    1:00pm
    Cuban-style salsa (sometimes called casino) is dynamic and circular, even when not danced in a circle (rueda). In this class we will teach some of our favorite one-on-one turn patterns (traditional and original). Ryan and Sidney will teach separately, so there will be two different levels dancing simultaneously (beginning and intermediate/advanced).

    Origins of Rueda: Moves from 1957 to 1964 (Levels 2 and up)
    2:00pm
    Rueda de Casino was first created by a group of teenagers in Havana in the late 1950s and early 1960s. In July, Ryan and Sidney traveled to Havana to meet and dance with several of the original dancers of the style (called "Fundadores," now in their 60s and 70s). In this class you'll learn many of the moves from the early days, including Derecha-izquierda, Bótala p'atrás, Enróscate, and Bikini.

    Musicality: Dancing to the Rhythms of Salsa and Timba
    3:00pm
    Cuban music is incredibly rich and rhythmically layered, offering us a great abundance of material to draw upon as dancers. In this class you'll learn some of the most common accents in timba how to express these rhythms with your body, primarily through changes in footwork. This rhythmic understanding will enhance your enjoyment of the music and invigorate your dancing, both in the rueda and with a partner.

    Salsa Workout and Body Movement (All levels)
    4:00pm
    In this energetic, full-body workout, we explore the roots and relatives of salsa. We warm up with basic footwork and move on to explore more complex rhythmic variations and related dance styles (such as Son, Mambo, Rumba and Cha-cha-chá) building towards completing the class with a dynamic and fun choreography. We will focus more on the relationship between Rumba and Salsa on Saturday, and the relationship between Son and Salsa on Sunday.

    SUNDAY, NOV 16TH
    Intro to Son Cubano (All levels)
    12:00pm
    Son is the style of dance and music that directly preceded Salsa in Cuba, but it is still a living tradition in itself. It is beautiful and elegant, simple in movements but sophisticated in rhythm and style. Many of the best salsa dancers incorporate movements, turns, timing, and style from son into their salsa dancing. In this class you'll learn the characteristic rhythm of Son (called "contratiempo" or "on 2") as well as some fundamental steps, movements, and turn patterns.

    Dancing with Clave: Changing Time (All levels)
    1:00pm
    The clave is the rhythmic essence, the "key," of salsa music. In this class you'll learn to identify the two key distinctions that make the four types of clave used in salsa: 3-2 vs. 2-3 and son vs. rumba. We'll use this knowledge of the clave to help us switch back and forth between dancing "on 1" ("a tiempo") and "on 2" ("a contratiempo"). And beyond the how of switching time, we’ll delve into why you would want to switch: what cues to listen for and respond to in the music. It is highly recommended (but not required) to take the Intro to Son class prior to this class.

    Santiago-style Salsa and Rueda (Intermediate/Advanced)
    2:00pm
    Santiago is the birthplace of Son Cubano and continues to be a center of innovation in both dance and music. Ryan and Sidney traveled to Santiago in July, studying from several different groups and teachers. In this class we'll show you our favorite new moves from Santiago, both one-on-one Salsa patterns and group moves for the Rueda.

    Salsa Workout and Body Movement (All levels) 
    3:00pm
    In this energetic, full-body workout, we explore the roots and relatives of salsa. We warm up with basic footwork and move on to explore more complex rhythmic variations and related dance styles (such as Son, Mambo, Rumba and Cha-cha-chá) building towards completing the class with a dynamic and fun choreography. We will focus more on the relationship between Rumba and Salsa on Saturday, and the relationship between Son and Salsa on Sunday.

    Save The Date! Ryan & Sidney (Rueda Con Ritmo) are Coming to San Diego To Do Workshops Nov 15-16

    Greetings Casineros
    GREAT NEWS! I am bringing two stellar Cuban dance instructors from the Bay Area, Ryan and Sidney from Rueda Con Ritmo, to come teach musicality and rueda workshops. You do not want to miss these incredible instructors. At rueda congresses, participants pack in and fill up their workshop rooms.
     My personal experience learning from them, back in Seattle, is that they are excellent teachers to teach Cuban dancing to the many polyrhythmic beats and accents to timba music. Their performances are by far the most challenging and well orchestrated. For non-Cubans who learned dancing to numbers, like myself, new to rueda and casino, Ryan & Sidney have a way of breaking down the music and teaching how to dance changing time utilizing visual aids and crafting music that help the Salsero On-1 dancers to pick up the time change on the footwork. Ryan brings in his years of knowledge of Cuban music and Sidney brings her years of knowledge of Cuban Salsa and rueda. She is so creative in her choreography. Some of my best learning moments on understanding the music (Cuban music) have been with Ryan and Sidney.

    Check out their website and watch their performance videos. They were the first instructors who helped me to navigate changing time from dancing On-1 to On-4 and back to on-1 in the same move.  Be on the lookout for their workshop information forthcoming! Just SAVE the date! Sat & Sun Nov 15th & 16th. We will celebrate and party with Ryan and Sidney that weekend!!
