We will cover the important aspects of the Rhythm, footwork, partnering technique, Casino, Rueda, Suelta and a brief intro to contributing Cuban dances (Son, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha and Mambo). Everything you need to get out on the dance floor and/or continue in our many other Rueda and Casino classes. 

PLUS!! - Halloween Party at Urban Motion on the 31st: 9:30pm - 1 AM with the famous yearly SVT/RVT Halloween Ruedas (This years theme TBA)

You must pre-register for this class, as space is limited to give you the best learning experience and it will most likely sell out. Go to: to register.

New Salsa dancers: Have no fear; you can learn both Salsa and Salsa Rueda at the same time. In fact it is a great way to learn club style dancing. The skills you learn from dancing this style of Salsa will make you a better club dancer in the end.

Experienced Salsa Rueda dancers : Perhaps you have some friends who have never done Salsa or Rueda before, here is their chance to get involved.

Experienced Salsa Dancers: Even if you have been dancing Salsa for awhile it is a good idea to start at the beginning when learning the Salsa Rueda curriculum. Here is your opportunity. All the info you need to adapt to the Cuban style
