Hola, salseros y salseras!
Welcome to SalsaCraze! We’re excited to have you join us and we hope you have fun learning how to dance to the rhythm of Casino-style salsa.
What is SalsaCraze?
SalsaCraze is one of the University of Miami’s largest student organizations. It was founded over a decade ago and our primary objective is to instruct anyone in the ways of salsa dancing. We have a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with a fun-loving, inclusive culture, and our goal is to enable people to implement what they learn relatively quickly while achieving technical mastery of the dance.
What is Casino?
Casino is a style of salsa dancing that originated in Cuba. The term rueda is a Spanish word that means “wheel”, and Rueda de Casino is danced in a circular format in which dancers constantly change partners. A cantante, or “caller” will call out dance moves with an associated hand gesture, and the dancers execute the move simultaneously.
