Dear all,

You are invited to a Son online workshop (beginners / pre-intermediate level) with Roly Maden.

Roly is from Cuba and teaches traditional Cuban folklore, Salsa, Timba, Son, Mambo, Afro Rumba and Chachacha in Verona, Italy. The peculiarity of his style is the care of the masculine and feminine gestures, the elegance and cleanliness of the movements, the musical interpretation, the dynamism. For more information about his work, see: Protected content

Son is an elegant dance, where dancers must maintain a very upright frame, with quick flirtatious and sensual side-to-side movements of the shoulders, torso and hips accenting the underlying six-count rhythm of the feet. Son is danced off the beat, so the couple moves on the half-beat before one.
During the workshop, you will learn the key body movements, technique, musicality of Traditional Son, derived from Cuba's African and Spanish roots and is the predecessor of what is now called salsa.

No partner is required. The cost is £7.99 for live stream and Zoom recordings (booking fee not included).
The workshop is part of the CUBA CONEXION WEEKEND. For more information and to buy the ticket please see: Protected content
Zoom link will be sent by the organiser directly after purchase of the ticket.

I hope to see many of you at the class ;-)
