Bon Voyage to Yuri, Rigo & Pedro

Three of our favorite Salseros are leaving Tucson, Yuri, Rigo & Pedro. They would like you all to join them for a last night of dancing and camaraderie at El Parador this Friday.

The large room all the way in the back of the club is reserved for our convenience. Let's all go this Friday to send them off with a bang and encourage them to return quickly.

10PM tomorrow (Friday the 6th) at El Parador...

Politics of Rhythm - "The Story of Salsa"

"Politics of Rhythm," a Feature Documentary, is a chronicle of the Salsa Movement, brought to life through the accounts of dozens of Salsa 'Players', whose knowledge, experiences and performances provide not only a rich tapestry of culture and politics, but a subtle telling of this modern American phenomenon.

History of Rueda de Casino

Thanks to the defined structure of Casino, appeared the popular Rueda de Casino, a type of choreography in circle form that is made by several pairs of dancers, guided by a leader who "sings" the movements.....

In order to speak of the antecedents of the Rueda de Casino it is necessary to go back to the reign of Luis XIV in France where the first ballets first appeared. As of that moment they instituted "ballets de corte". In order to have a good title it was necessary to know certain choreographies that were performed in the celebrations of the nobility. Clear examples: the Minuet and the Contradanzas.
