Studio Classes

In Cuba, a popular dance known as Casino was marketed abroad as Cuban-style salsa or Salsa Cubana to distinguish it from other salsa styles when the name was popularized in the 1970s. Dancing Casino is an expression of popular social culture; Many Cubans consider casino a part of their social and cultural activities centering on their popular music.
It is a physical dance, but because it a friend of improvisation and creativity, it does not have strict rules of what can and cannot be done. It is flexible, and doesn’t necessitate strict form or styling. For these reasons, it attracts a wide community of ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
