Join USA and international Rueda instructors for 3 hours of daily afternoon workshops on the very latest in for intermediate & advanced Rueda dancers (see more info at end).
Teaching approach = presentation followed immediately by Instructor-guided practice in small 4 to 6-couple circles … with extended opportunities for cantantes to replicate calling the lesson. Example from 2019 =
CONCEPTS & CALLS to …
subdivide the circle (ie., Eco)
move the circle (ie., Saloneo, Abrazeo, Paseos)
change orientation (ie., Enchufla Flip, Exhibela con Carne)
change partners (ie., Tarita, Exhibe nuevo)
change roles (ie. Switch)
STRUCTURES & MODALITIES to …
change structures (ie., Linea, Avenida, Torno, Llanta)
change basic modality (ie, Espejo, Equis)
Workshops will also include some traditional Casino techniques and figures as well as some Rueda de la Calle calls.Our are designed for dancers competent at an level of Rueda. Recommended: 4 to 6 months of weekly instruction in a typical “Rueda” class or “Casino” (MCC or “Miami figures”). Experience in linear Salsa class is not really equivalent. .
So that all participants have equal opportunity to dance all 3 hours of the workshops, all dancers should know the basics of both lead and follow in Rueda. Instruction with “ghost partners” is not practical in these workshops.
