This four week workshop introduces dancers to the poetry and subtlety of traditional Son Cubano. Born in the eastern, mountainous region of Cuba, Son traveled to the urban areas and eventually contributed it's rhythm, form, and sensuous expressive qualities to the modern expression of Salsa dancing seen all over the world today. In combination with other popular forms on the island, Son is one of the essential points of departure for contemporary Cuban Salsa "Casino" and Rueda de Casino. As Casino's slower, and subtler precursor, Son shows the devoted dance student the essence of form, connection, and Afro-Cuban sensibility.
