For Rueda de Casino lessons with Sarita Leyva…  Sunday classes remain on the schedule for intermediate and advanced dancers.  The club gets full of dancers for this event.

This weekly party has very quickly become the biggest club party for Cuban music and dance in town.The Sunday event is a salsa cubana/timba/reggaeton kind of night. Music for a Cuban audience and for the dancers who prefer casino to salsa…… At 8:30 pm, the Rueda de Casino class here has already taken Toronto by storm. It is being imitated in a hurry by many regular style salsa schools. Come to Babaluú for the real thing… the authentic Rueda de Casino like they do it in Cuba!!

DJ Billy Bryans, the Sunday Rueda de Casino class is taught by Trevor Forde on behalf of Sarita Leyva for now… at 8:30 pm.
