West Coast Swing Dance Class

Join us every week for West Coast Swing dance class taught by our wonderful instructor Davis Canady Jr.

West Coast Swing is a smooth and funky dance style that combines the sensuality of a lead and follow partner dance with an individuality that allows for playfulness and creativity. West Coast Swing is a style of Swing that can be danced to a wide variety of music speeds and styles (contemporary, soul, R&B, rock, country, jazz, blues, you name it!). It is often considered smoother and more sensuous than other styles of swing. 

Though it takes a bit more effort to learn the basics, it is more independently creative, especially as one becomes more advanced. Be sure to check out our calendar for exact dates and times.

Salsa Rueda Dance Class

Salsa Rueda (also known as Rueda de Casino) is a fun and exciting group dance. Rueda (as it is commonly called in Cuba) is a form of dancing with 2 or more couples in a circle exchanging partners when one person calls out different movements or steps. ("Rueda" is Spanish for “Wheel”, and “Casino” is known outside of Cuba as “Salsa”).

The classes are very relaxed and fun and a great way to learn rueda. In addition, the moves that are learned in rueda de casino can also be applied to salsa, so this is a great opportunity to add more steps to incorporate into your salsa repertoire.

Our terrific instructor Davis Canady Jr. we will be teaching Salsa Rueda class every week. No experience or dance partners required. Everyone is welcome to come and have fun! Be sure to check out our calendar for exact dates and times.
