Join Anaya Latin Dance on Tuesday nights from 6:30-8 pm for this ongoing drop-in class dancing Cuban salsa, drawing from casino and timba. This class will incorporate footwork and body movement as well as partner work in couples.
Beginners can join any time. This class is taught at an open level and will be split into two levels when necessary and possible to accommodate beginners. However, is always a good idea to take one of our beginner workshops or schedule a private lesson, especially if you feel like you might need more time to get the basics down!
Both the Tuesday night Cuban salsa class and the Saturday afternoon rueda de casino class are drop-in classes operate on both a single class ($15) and a punch card system. You can use your same punch card for any class marked “Alaska Casineros”.
