This course continues where PE 1160 Latin Dance and PE 1162 Salsa leave off. The focus is on three dances: Salsa, Bachata and Cha Cha Cha. Advanced beginner and intermediate step sequences and combinations are taught in lines, single couple format and in Rueda de Casino (or Rueda). Rueda is a circular form of social dancing performed by multiple couples via call and response. It was born in Cuba in the 1950s and has become popular throughout the world over the last half century. In this course, Rueda is a dance form and teaching method. Rueda enhances social dance learning in any format by emphasizing timing, energy flow and repetition. Students acquire skills in timing, body movement, lead-follow technique and space use. This class is gender-free: each student is free to learn the lead or follow role. Partner sign-up is not required, though encouraged. Partners rotate. Dance experience recommended.
