CAMBRIDGE CUBAN SALSA has the immense pleasure of welcoming SUSAN HACKING in CAMBRIDGE for a special workshop entitled: CUBAN ESSENCE, on Saturday, June 6th, 2009.

Have you ever wondered what makes the Cuban style of salsa so unique and so special? After all, "it's all salsa", isn't it?

To answer that question in the most delightful way, we are very lucky to receive SUSAN HACKING in Cambridge for a special workshop entitled "CUBAN ESSENCE".

You have probably met Susan in many of the great Cuban salsa congresses of the UK, or regularly at the Buffalo Bar or other Salsa Caribe venues in London. If so, then you have certainly been charmed by the combination of deep understanding of the Cuban movements, spotless pedagogy and uplifting feelings which characterise her classes.

During the workshop, she will illustrate the uniqueness and variety of the Cuban style through its characteristic body movements, some of them connected with Son and Rumba. This promises to be a mind and body opening experience for both male and female salsa dancers.

This workshop follows the two very successful first editions, "Casino workshop" with Richard Fallon in April, and "Son workshop" with Juan Carlos Pacheco in May, which have seen many dancers returning enchanted of their participation. Don't miss out on that one!
