Rueda de casino
Rueda de Casino was developed in Havana, Cuba in the late 1950s and early 1960s by the group Guaracheros de Regla and one of its main choreographers and creators was Jorge Alfaro from San Miguel del Padron, a soloist of a comparsa. Pairs of dancers form a circle, with dance moves called out by one person, a caller (or "cantante" in Spanish). Many moves have hand signs to complement the calls; these are useful in noisy venues, where spoken calls might not be easily heard. Most moves involve the swapping of partners.
During this special course given by Bea, you will learn how to move different parts of your body such as arms, hands, chest and shoulders, independently. Part of the course will be dedicated to combine these movements with the steps for an authentic Cuban lady style. Bea will also teach you small choreographies to practice and master Bea's best sensual moves. To attend this course you need to have min 1 year of dance experience.
