Salsa Casino Madness Welcomes Home Renato Party & Workshop

Party and Workshop Announcement!

Yes Familia, it's been 2 years (just about) since our great friend and master Renato has been away from San Diego. He made a really great impression on the Casino Community when he was here and the great news, is that he will be visiting on the weekend of Nov 17th & 18th. The plan is to have a welcome home party on Sat 11/17 to celebrate having him in town, catch up, dance, drink and who knows what else!

on Sunday 11/18 there will be a 3-hour workshop, where he will be covering advanced casino and a few extra things that are sure to help you continue your amazing journey in the world of Cuban Salsa.

Renato has been dancing Cuban style (Casino,Rumba,Son, Cha Cha Cha) since he was a teenager under Cuban Masters in Chile, where it is also taught in the Universities. Has gone on to actually teach at the same University as well as start his Team "Guayaberos" there. Where under his teachings, have gone on to perform and compete. They have performed not only for live audiences but on Chilean National Television as well. He made his way to San Diego a few years ago and started a new "Guayaberos TJ" along his Co-Directors Miroslava Wilson & David Mariano (2 amazing and accomplished dancers already ) also performing all over Baja California,Mexico and even here in SD. He has such patience yet an increadible amount of energy not easily rivalled when it comes to dance. If you missed him when he was here before, here is a chance to meet, dance, and learn from him, oh and party of course. For those who did get to know him, it's a huge welcome home party reunion. Come join in on the madness.
