Coventry Uni students — are you interested in a free beginner/improver 10 week Cuban salsa dance course running Wednesday evenings 5:30pm to 8:30pm during Semester 2 (2017/18)?
If so, contact Pablo at [email protected]
or here on Facebook (Pablo A Domene) for more details.
This semester we will have 2 separate levels — beginner (for those without any previous salsa dance experience; 5:30pm start) and improver (for those with some previous salsa dance experience or those who have taken the beginner level before; 7:00pm start).
Cuban salsa is a fun social ‘street’ dance originally from Havana, Cuba. Join our classes and you may just learn a new life-long skill, increase your confidence, make some new friends and meet some new people, develop an appreciation for Latin/Caribbean music and dance, and have a whole load of fun in the process :)
By the way, we are not a Coventry Uni society!
Room SHB G.12 on the ground floor of the Science and Health Building, just past the Starbucks
Day and Time:
Wednesdays 5:30pm — 7:00pm (beginner) and 7:00pm — 8:30pm (improver)

The Technical Stuff:
We teach Cuban salsa, also known as Casino, and the format of the classes will be 1) dancing not in couples but in a line formation, also known as Suelta, and 2) dancing in couples and switching partners within a circle formation, also known as Rueda de Casino.
