LADAS has partnered with Dance on Newy to bring members a free intro course to Rueda de Casino! Rueda is the group dance that you have probably seen at the Wicko on Tuesday nights. These FREE lessons will cover the basics so you can join in! Please support our use of the Wicko by purchasing a drink or some food each week you attend, and consider signing up to Dance On Newy's classes to progress beyond the basics that you'll learn in this 5-week intro. The Rueda class is 30 minutes only, 8-8:30pm, but it is immediately followed by the weekly community social salsa practice.
