HIGH 10 RUEDA GROUP- new recruits from November onwards!
We are looking for new dancers to join our closed group! Over the last months we have started some sessions with a group of 8-10 advanced rueda dancers that are up for a new challenge and don't mind pushing their limits a bit (both as leaders and followers)! We are exploring new structures, change of roles and other tricky concepts... and the group is doing an AMAZING job and don't fail to impress with the progress made! We will also try to find opportunities to put these moves into practice in performances and flashmobs. If you are an advanced rueda dancer, you can lead and follow (or willing to learn), you are able to commit to join the sessions once a week every week and you feel this would be for you, feel free to contact us for more details!
OTHER ACTIVITIES TO KEEP AN EYE ON
New HIGH FIVE SALSA SWITCH VIDEOS now in Youtube!
We are editing a series of videos to show some of the moves we are using in our rueda switch. Rueda switch you need to know how to lead and follow. The videos will focus in the transitions or moves that change roles while dancing rueda (and many can also be used in partnerwork). We will start with some of the basics of switch (e.g.: easy switch, confusion, dame switch, enchufla switch, prima switch, etc).
You can check out our list here:
