This hot dance style originated in Cuba in the early 50's. The name comes from - Casino Deportivo - frequented by great dancers. They put together steps and turns, formed hot combinations and named them. Currently the Miami Casino repertoire includes a few of the beautiful disco moves danced to salsa timing. You can dance Casino as a couple or in a Rueda (Roo eh da). Go to Instruction Videos for more information. In Rueda couples form a circle in which one person calls or signals the different moves. Depending on the call the couples dance intricate combinations and turns or switch partners. Danced to Salsa timing (stepping on the one beat) the result is a fast paced, beautifully synchronized, exciting dance. Not only do you get to interact with other dancers it's also fun beyond words! The best Salsa dancers in Miami know these moves.

Ladies please note that it's not enough for the man to be a good lead you must also learn the steps, turns and combinations. Women must understand degree of tone for the arms etc. otherwise it's difficult to lead you. You don't want to limit the lead plus the more you know the more you'll be able to dance with really good dancers.

Dancers from all over the U.S. and Europe are coming to Miami to learn.
