Monday Salsa, Rueda, Ritmo, and Fiestecita in Oakland
Every Monday at both 7:30pm and 8:45pm we offer 4 levels of Salsa and Rueda taught simultaneously by 4 instructors, but with a unique addition -- rhythm and musicality instruction are a part of every hour at Levels 3 and 4. We have two rooms so we are also able to offer total beginner (Level 1) and Level 2 classes at both hours in a separate room.
7:30pm Salsa, Rueda, and Ritmo, Levels 1, 2, 3, & 4
8:45pm Salsa, Rueda, and Ritmo, Levels 1, 2, 3, & 4
9:45pm FIESTECITA -- Open dancing until 11:00pm w/DJ Ritmo
(We've suspended the 6:00pm movement class for the time being.)
Our venue (In The Groove 2 at 366 Grand Ave.) has two rooms, and so we are able to offer special rhythm and musicality instruction as a part of our rueda classes at Levels 3 and 4 at both 7:30 and 8:45pm. You'll learn fundamental rhythms like son clave, rumba clave, ponche, tresillo, and tun-tun, and also more advanced patterns and combinations.
Here's the Ritmo curriculum:
SONG OF THE WEEK
We'll be focusing on a different Timba song every week for our Monday Oakland classes. You can hear a playlist with all of our past songs of the week on YouTube:
MULTI-LEVEL EVERY HOUR
Just like on Fridays in San Francisco, on Mondays we offer all 4 levels at both 7:30 and 8:45. Ryan, Sidney, André, Cristina, Steve and our other talented and friendly co-instructors will teach separate groups each hour, so we can always accommodate all levels of casiner@s.
$30 FOR 4 classes ($7.50 per class) or $13 to drop in to one class. The fiestecita is free -- you don't have to attend the classes to come to the Fiestecita (but you'll have fun and learn some new moves if you do).
We hope you can all join us on Mondays at In The Groove!
