We often find ourselves as Casino (Cuban) style dancers, dancing to complex fast Timba Salsa in small crowded clubs. Usually, the best music and dancers are found in the most crowded clubs. At times, the music calls for a break from open and larger movements. Still wanting to dance and express ourselves we have developed a workshop series that focuses on the closed position in Cuban (Casino) Style Salsa. Our techniques are drawn from a variety of sources including Danzon, Son, Casino, Salsa Linea, Tango, and Tai Chi. Our workshop starts with the basics adapted to crowded intimate dance floors and covers travelling, rhythm changes, posture, connection, communication, tornillos, adapting complex moves to club situations, Paseas, and Suelta Cerca. Learn to lead and follow anything in a relaxed friendly environment without all that yanking, pushing and pulling to communicate with each other.
