Lessons / Workshops

We hold lessons once a week during the academic year.

For the Fall 2016 semester, lessons will begin on Sunday, September 18. Check out our Events Calendar page for further details!

Lessons are free for MIT students and $5 for general admission. No partner necessary.

People will be split up into three levels:

  1. Beginner: No experience necessary. You will learn the basics of Rueda de Casino, lead/follow technique.
  2. Advanced Beginner: Assumes a knowledge of basic Rueda moves. You will learn advanced-beginner and intermediate level Rueda moves.
  3. Intermediate/Advanced: Assumes the dancer is comfortable with beginner and intermediate Rueda moves and has a good lead/follow technique. You will learn advanced moves.

These levels are not designated in terms of salsa. If you dance salsa but not rueda, you will be placed at a beginner level. It will be up to the discretion of the instructors to move you up to the next level.

Lessons are formal instruction, so bring your sweats, your jazz sneakers/dancing shoes, your water bottles, and plenty of energy to burn for 2 hours straight.
