Salsa Rueda Performance Workshop

Performing at the Festival is an amazing experience and this year will be our tenth year. 

The workshop is open to any dancer who has learned their basics in Rueda de Casino. That means being confident in DQN, Dame, Enchufla, Adios (la prima), and most of our level 1 and 2 turns at https://www.salsavaletodo.com/curriculum/
