I used to be a Salsa fanatic but I’ve fallen away from dancing over the past few years.
Rueda is a form of dance where partners are not tightly coupled and there is a caller who orchestrates a larger group. The group often forms a wheel or circle (rueda in Spanish). Here’s a scene from the movie Dance With Me which shows the dance style in the wild. It’s a cute movie of a young man discovering and reconnecting with his long lost father.
Here it is in a more organized format:
I’ve just done one practice (last Sunday) and one lesson (yesterday) so no pictures yet. So I’ll I’ve got is these old pictures from ages ago. New friends and new pictures to appear. I think this needs to be two activities per week average so looks like for the next month I’ll do the Wednesday lesson and then one social activity.
Vamos al medio, Para el Medio (side tap)
Ariba, para ariba (forward in circle)
Abajo (backward in circle)
Un Tarro (man forward under arm to next lady)
