Is Cuban-Style Salsa
For You?

This lively and extremely social form of dancing is for you if you want to:

1. Learn many Salsa moves quickly.

2. Learn partnership moves and group moves/formations

3. Keep trading partners and dance with everyone, creating a team spirit.

Because Cuban style Salsa ("Rueda de Casino") is done by a group, people in the class feel connected, like a team.  In fact, a number of couples from our classes have became engaged or married! (See the wedding photo on this page!) See the Classes page for more details.

About the Instruction

The classes are patiently taught by Barbara Bernstein in conjunction with teaching assistants. All the teachers are experienced Salsa/Rueda dancers who kindly share their talent as instructors for DanceInTime. 

Barb herself has taught Salsa for a nearly 15 years at schools, studios, clubs, athletic facilities, county recreation departments, etc.  She has also taught (and performed) at out of town venues. Click here for more details on Barb's background.

How We Enhance And Tailor Our Performances

The performances that are arranged by DanceInTime sometimes lace dance demonstrations with educational components, such as discussing the history and underlying rhythm of the dances that are performed. This makes a nice program that both informs and entertains.

DanceInTime can run shows as long as one to three hours or as short as a single song performance.

A Great Way to Practice Dance Steps

How would you like to have a dance teacher constantly "on hand" as you practice dance steps?

Barb created a CD titled "Rhythm Reminder" to help dancers keep the beat.  It has music with a "voice over" that counts the dancers' beats just as teachers do in class----enabling them to concentrate on their steps. It is excellent for dance practice.  For more info, click here.
