Workshops will also include some traditional Casino techniques and figures as well as some Rueda de la Calle calls.4c Avenida AOur afternoon workshops are designed for dancers competent at an intermediate to advanced 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.  Local Mexican teachers offer evening drop-in classes for beginning-level dancers new to Casino, Rueda, or “Salsa Cubana “.
