3hrs Cuban salsa workshop
on Sunday March 16th

(Parking available.)

We are so looking forward to her unique and amazing teaching: with 20 years of experience as a dance teacher and movement analyst, Kerry provides classes which have had a clear before/after effect on many a Cuban salsa dancer in the UK, and have changed many people's dancing for the better in profound ways. She offers a structured course which explores Cuban salsa dancing in a systematic way, building from traditional Orishas dances straight through to the more modern reggaeton moves, using each of the typical Cuban dances to illustrate movement principles which will add flavour and authenticity to your salsa dancing. Definitely not to be missed.

VALUE FACTS:

  • Kerry is an internationally known professional Cuban salsa teacher. She travels to Cuba more than 4 times a year to keep up with the latest evolutions of Cuban music and dance, and has worked with legends such as Juan de Dios from the Raices Profundas Cuban national dance company. More recently, she has been directed dance videoclips for famous bands Bamboleo ("La que manda" official video), Los Van Van ("Me Mantengo" official video) and Havana d'Primera ("Al final de la vida" official video).
  • Usually that kind of workshop is only available in London or at faraway congresses. By taking this workshop in Cambridge, you are making huge savings on transport costs.
  • Many people from Cambridge and surroundings have taken workshops with Kerry in the past, and we have never heard any negative feedback about it, rather quite the opposite: everyone asked her back. Checking your teacher's credentials is important: please ask around for people's feedback.

Just join and enjoy this great opportunity to learn Cuban salsa with one of the best teachers available today in the UK!

Sunday Dec. 9th - Special "Sandy Relief" charity workshops with Danza Zunzún!

When: Sunday December 9th, 15:00-18:00.
Where: Cambridge Working Men's Club, 125 East Road, Cambridge CB1 1DB.

[Direct link to ONLINE BOOKING]


To get us ready for the Christmas festivities and spirit Cambridge Cuban Salsa presents a one-off set of three workshops exploring the roots of Cuban dance. These workshops have been designed in the same spirit as this Autumn's series both at the Thursday Social Club and the fabulous and entertaining classes by Havana Belgrado and AfroFusion Dance at the Sunday Salsa Lounge: enriching you salsa and your styling with genuine elements of Cuba's rich dancing culture. The effects on everyone's dancing, fluidity and confidence on the dance-floor have been clearly visible over the past months. If you didn't have a chance to be with us for the past series, now is your chance to catch up on this.

SPECIAL SANDY RELIEF: ALL PROCEEDS DONATED TO THE DANCERS AND FAMILIES OF THE AFRO CUBAN BALLET IN SANTIAGO

As we are preparing to celebrate Christmas en Europe, people in Cuba may not be that lucky, especially in the Eastern provinces (Santiago and surrounding) which have been seriously devastated by hurricane Sandy. All proceeds from the day will go to the fund that Danza Zunzún are building and which will be donated to the dancers & families of The Afro-Cuban Ballet in Santiago de Cuba, whose houses were ravaged and whose lives were seriously affected by this natural disaster. Cambridge Cuban Salsa is happy to help by donating infrastructure to organise and advertise this workshop, and we hope to see many of you supporting this good cause.

A GOOD VALUE WORKSHOP

Feedback about Danza Zunzún's teaching at the Thursdays and other workshops in Cambridge has been very positive, and this is one of the last occasions to benefit from their teaching before they leave Cambridge. Extra value includes:

  • a free CD with all the music that was used during Danza Zunzún's classes in Cambridge,
  • free access to the Sunday Salsa Lounge (class+party) on the same day.


The programme is as follows:

  • 1500: workshops at the Cambridge Working Men's Club, 125 East Road, Cambridge CB1 1DB (opposite the Crown Court):
    • 1500-1550: Salsa Picante; Putting Rumba, Son and Afro-Cuban styling into your salsa.
    • Water and clothes change break.
    • 1600-1650: Rumba Guaguancó; with live percussion (clave and shekere) and recently released music by Kokoye in Santiago de Cuba.
    • Water and clothes change break.
    • 1700-1750: Conga Santiaguera; to get us into the Christmas mood; the ultimate Santiago de Cuba -carnival, -community and -high-energy dance.
  • 1800: optional group dinner at the Chinese buffet one block up from the Man on the Moon on Norfolk street.
  • 1930: Sunday Salsa Lounge, class + party, at the Man on the Moon, 2 Norfolk St., CB1 2LF.

If you are only available for 1 hour on Sunday you can choose your favourite class at a drop in costs mentioned below, but this excludes the free CD and free access to the Sunday Salsa Lounge.

A large, spacious dance-floor awaits us at the Cambridge Working Men's Club on East Road. Please bring comfortable clothes and perhaps a couple of changes as the workshops will be high-energy.
