That’s right. They’re going to be doing some fun rueda dancing north of the border pretty soon. Here’s an announcement that I got from Julio up in Vancouver. I think I’m going to run up there and enjoy the night with them. Here you go.

Hola amigos:
 
Let’s go back to Havana!!! The first Big Cuban Fiesta of 2009 is taking place on Friday January 30th at the conveniently located Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel, right on Kingsway and 12th Ave. Here’s what we have to offer:
 
TWO Rueda dance performances by ESTILO CUBANO (full Cuban flavour) and SALSABROSA (Canada’s only all-female Rueda team!). Both teams are currently championing the Rueda phenomenon in this city.
DJ mixing a heavy load of Cuban Salsa, Reggaeton, Salsaton, Merengue & Bachata.
Complementary dance lesson by Michael Rosen from Mas Movement!!
the Cuban dance videos are back!!! Just check the big screen when you’re taking a little break; we’ll be displaying interesting footage all night.
– and here’s a surprise: get ready to play a special Rueda game at some point after midnight!!!!
 
The Cuban Fiesta is a social dance event in an environment reminiscent of an island party: we like to shake it and we love to smile. It doesn’t matter how well you can dance!
