What is Rueda de Casino? Rueda is a type of circle dance that came from Cuban Salsa Style / Casino, meaning “Casino Wheel”. To understand Rueda and dance successfully , we first have to have a good knowledge of basic steps & turns from beginner level done at Shumdesalsa classes. How does Rueda de Casino work? Each dancer is paired with a leader or follower and positioned to make a circle. Rueda is not a choreography, it all spontaneous routines called by one person who is named “Cantante” (the singer), they call the steps that the dancers have to make, swapping partners many times as they move around and keep the shape of the circle. The names of the steps are usually in Spanish or “Spanglish”. Why Learn Rueda de Casino? Rueda de Casino is only taught in Cuban Salsa classes due to tradition and style – Cuban salsa is danced in circles and turns which makes dancing in one big circle make sense. Other styles of salsa dance mainly in lines and makes it impossible to keep a circle.
