Kati will be teaching three classes - First, an intermediate/advanced class for the Orishás (Afro-Cuban divinities). This class will be taught each day and will be accompanied by live drumming by our faculty. Second, Kati will teach popular styles drawn from the rich tradition of Cuban one-on-one partner dances. Third, Kati will teach Rueda de Casino, where pairs of dancers form a circle and on cue do identical moves, often trading partners.
José will be teaching two classes. First, he will teach a folkloric dance class focusing on Rumba and dances from the Haitian tradition. Rumba brings together all the diverse elements of Afro-Cuban culture and has three distinct styles. This class will be taught each day and will be accompanied by live drumming by our faculty. Second, José will teach the popular dance style known as Son. Originating in the mountainous provinces of eastern Cuba, the son has spread throughout the world and is the major influence on what is today known as salsa.
Kimberly will teach a beginning level class on the fundamental steps and movements common to the different Orishás.
