About the Dance

Rueda de Casino Salsa, which translates to "Wheel of Cuban Salsa," is a fun group dance that originated in the casinos (dance halls) of Cuba in the late 50s & has recently grown in popularity around the world.


Rueda can be danced to any salsa song.  Dancers pair up & form a circle, & a designated caller signals various moves that everyone executes in unison.  Many of the moves involve partner changes, & dancers quickly work their way around the circle, dancing with everyone in what feels like an awesome musical game.   While there are several standard rueda moves that stay consistent wherever you go, rueda groups traditionally add their own original moves, so there's always more to learn!  Several rueda moves can also be used outside the circle to add some Cuban flavor to your social dancing.


Rueda is guaranteed to be tons of fun, so come check it out!
