COURSE DESCRIPTIONS AND FURTHER INFO

Monday 6.30pm Beginner Rueda de Casino with Rod
Are you looking to learn the basics of Rueda de Casino? Or are you looking to really understand what makes for the best technique in this style and want to fine tune your skills? Then this course is for you!
What is Rueda de Casino? Rueda is a type of circle dance that came from Salsa de Casino in Cuba, meaning “Casino Wheel”. Each dancer is paired with a leader or follower and positioned to make a circle. Rueda is not a choreography, it all spontaneous routines called by one person who is named the caller, they call the steps that the dancers have to make, swapping partners many times as they move around and keep the shape of the circle. Suitable for: Students who have a basic knowledge of salsa steps (at least 6 months experience) and for Rueda students wanting to fine tune their foundations. This course would be perfect for existing Rueda students who need to make sure their skills are sharp (especially going into our Rueda schedule for 2024).
What we’ll cover: the basic foundational moves, structure, the rules and timing. We’ll take the time to break down the steps in a fun and supportive environment. Leaving you with a solid foundation to join our Tuesday night classes

Wednesday 6.30pm – Beginner Dominican Bachata Choreography with May.
Bachata is a dance from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean islands. Both the music and the dance have been influenced by Cuban Bolero, the Merengue (also of Dominican Republic origin), Salsa and Cumbia. Bachata is one of the most popular styles of social dance in the Latin dance scene. This dance is based on an easy to follow sequence of three on-beat steps, with a tap marking the fourth beat. It is styled with a fluid movement of the body which is mesmerising to watch and just wonderful to dance! Bachata’s simplicity makes it a very beginner-friendly dance, while the opportunity for musical interpretation it provides makes it truly addictive for dancers of all levels. This will build in a choreography style format over the ten weeks culminating in a complete routine for students to use. There will also be a performance opportunity at the end of the term for those interested (not compulsory).

Thursday 7.30pm – Zambra Mora (Barefoot Flamenco) with Cara
Cara is really excited to be teaching this style. Something she has studied personally for most of her dance career. It has coloured the way she dances and she’s often asked about the elements it brings to her dance style. So she is excited to share this with the Global Dance Collective students. Also known as Zambra Mora, the Zambra is a flamenco dance of the Romani people in Granada. It appears that the word Zambra has its meaning in the Arabic word zamra (flute) (flute) or zamara (musicians). The Romani Zambra was born in Sacromonte, in the caves of the Romani people. A style of song and dance inspired by the local Muslim weddings. When the Moors were persecuted by the Christians, they took refuge with the Romani, so that the latter ended up enriching themselves with their art. With the passage of time, the Zambra also became part of the weddings of the Romani of Sacromonte. At that time, the gypsy Zambra was danced barefoot, wearing a long skirt with large pleats tied at the hips that seemed to float when dancing and a blouse knotted under the chest. Students will be required to purchase a 25 yard skirt (which can be bought from Belly Dance stores) see Cara for more info on this. This course will focus on Choreography in term two. Which will be performed at Global Shimmy mid year. This course is open to everyone, from any dance background.
