Cuban Dance Classes

 

AlbaCubaDance lead teacher, Yamil Cuedo Ferrera, primarily teaches Cuban dance classes for Salsa, Rueda de Casino and other Caribbean/Latin styles at weekly classes to suit all levels. Below are descriptions of the dance styles, as well as timings for our regular Cuban dance classes (see foot of page for details of weekly classes).

Salsa

Cuban salsa is characterised by fluid moves, full body movements and a great sense of fun. It is often referred to as casino. Both partners are on the move constantly, dancing with and around each other, sharing the same space, dancing as one in a flowing pattern of turns and steps.  With AlbaCubaDance classes and workshops, you can learn the basics, build up your confidence and, importantly, have fun!

Rueda de Casino

is salsa danced in a circle, with one lead person calling out the moves to be danced by everyone at exactly the same time. It is like synchronised salsa, with partners being swopped constantly – great fun and very sociable.

Afro-Cuban

Afro-Cuban dance and rhythms stem from the slaves who were brought to Cuba mainly from West Africa and who managed to keep their traditions alive through dance, music and song. Strong, expressive and energetic, this style of dance is characterised by full body movements with shoulder and chest undulations, repetitive step patterns and bold but fluid moves.  Afro-Cuban music is poly-rhythmic  and driven by drums, voice and percussion.  Many of the best known dances and music reflects the type of work that the African slaves did when they were brought to Cuba, such as cutting sugar cane, whilst others are characterised by traditional festive dances and music which remain faithful to their original roots.
