Casino Rueda:

La Rueda de Casino (Casino Wheel) is Cuban Salsa, which is known as "Casino",
danced in a circle or a "wheel".
La Rueda (The Wheel) is danced as a formation team, by a two or more couples
dancing in a circle.

When only two couples are involved, it is also known as "two by two" or a "foursome".
Each couple is made up of a leader and a follower, and each leader leads
the respective follower in the same way as is usual in salsa partner dancing.
The Rueda is led by a caller who tells the leaders the next move.
Each move has a name, usually in Spanish, and moves can vary from simple steps,
through basic turns for both leader and follower, up to complex sequences of
turn patterns. Rueda moves often involve changing partners, with leaders or
followers moving clockwise or anti-clockwise around the circle.
To help in a loud club setting, some Rueda moves have hand signals as well
as calls. If someone doesn't hear or recognise a call, the others can relay
the message.

The leaders are responsible for controlling the shape and size of the circle,
which should expand and contract according to the space needed for individual
moves and the distance required to be travelled as partners move around the
wheel.

Consideration should also be given to other dancers because La Rueda can take
up a lot of room on the dance floor.
Throughout La Rueda, the dancers should stay in step and position, according
to the particular move, and in general, take small steps, particularly when
stepping back.

In the Casino style of salsa dancing, the partners move relative to each other,
moving around each other, swapping positions. So, when the follower moves from,
say, the leader's right hand side, in front of the leader, to the leader's left
hand side, the leader also moves in the appropriate direction to assist this,
in this case, from the follower's left hand side, behind the follower, to the
follower's right hand side.

La Rueda de Casino evolved out of the mixture of African and European cultures
which influenced music and dance in Cuba. Among the many rhythmic styles that
have developed out of this mixture, Son is an influencial ancestor of the Casino
style of dancing. Dancing in a group also developed from the diverse cultural
backgrounds of the people of Cuba. The reason for naming the dancing style Casino
is obscure, but is probably due to the development of the dancing in the dance halls
and casinos in Cuba in the middle of the 20th century. Dancing this style in a group,
in a circle, came to be known as La Rueda de Casino.

The evolution of the dance continues within Cuba and around the world, where
different groups of dancers have altered, varied and extended existing moves
and invented new ones.

rueda casino over time has become a very refined dance.. in fact at times i would feel it is easier because all the moves are already KNOWN to both man and lady.. its just that the order, or what comes after what, is decided by the caller..

but once called, there are no ugly surprises about which way the man is gonna lead.. it is definitely easier on the lady because she, having seen the call, would know more or less what the man would be planning.. one just needs a reasonable bit of practice to quickly respond to the calling and adjust the space to keep it a circle all the time and make space for everyone..

This should be fun:

principe bueno("good prince") -- An enchufla, except kiss the FO's R hand as you leave her to pick up your new partner.

principe malo (castigala!) -- An enchufla, but instead of the kiss, mime a slap to the Princess'right hand.

festival de enchufla (an ebchufla party!) -- Three enchuflas executed in a row, with 1, 2 and finally 3 hand-claps in between each. The claps are initiated on count 1 (i.e. on the LE left foot, just after leaving your partner to pick up your new one). Sometimes (e.g., in the Cuban Dance Workshop at 3rd Wave, Fall, 1996) the claps are on the 6th step (8th beat of the music), just 1 beat before LEs step on the leading left foot.
pelota (the ball) una (dos, tres,....) -- Enchufla, then one (or 2 or 3,...) clap(s) as you leave to pick up the next partner. The claps are initiated on count 1 (i.e. on the LE left foot, just after leaving your partner to pick up your new one).

Coca Cola -- Step in front of your partner (inside the circle) and bring her across (XBL) while turning her in an IT turn by her R shoulder. Then XBL her back to her original position.
