SD Traditions

Since San Diego Counties can span a large distance, there are dance events in different places North, Central and South San Diego and in nearby counties. Things are starting to happen in San Diego and certain staple events (traditions) that happen once a month with contact information about each are happening on a regular basis:


Casino on Whatever in San Diego and  Hike-n-Rueda Meet-Ups

Casino on Whatever Dance Parties at the Beach
A once-a-month progressive rueda dance party at the beach located at designated parks or beach sites along the San Diego coastline.  Depending on the beach site, we are dancing on cardboard, concrete, astroturf, grass, don't matter, We just want to dance timba music.   

Hike-n-Rueda Meet-Ups
Last year in the Speing, we organized a number of hiking meet-ups for casineros where we danced rueda de casino any chance we could on the hiking trail. Maritza brought her UE Megaboom speaker and we stopped to dance rueda along the trail while we hiked. This was really fun and we are bringing it back for the whole year.

In 2019, this will event will take place once a month.  This is a FREE event and family friendly. Set up as a snack-luck event which means people bring snacks to share similar to a potluck.  This event will always be announced on the blog and on Maritza's Facebook page "Baila Cubano San Diego Inc."
