Rueda de Casino-
It is a group dance that has been passed on from one generation to another. It is performed in a circle formed by some pairs, guided by a leader who commands turns and partner changes, following the Casino dance steps.
Cha Cha Cha
This rhythm evolved from different contributions and innovations made by Cuban musicians using dance melodies and the balance between tempo and syncopated tunes.
The appearance of this rhythm owes to the dancers of the Silver Starsociety, the Havana central corner of Prado and Neptuno and later, in all Havana dance floors, the creation of dance steps according to the characteristics of the new style.
Dancers made an "escobilleo" beating to one side and to the other, the one, two; one, two, three and that sound on the floor, like cha-cha-cha gave name to this rhythm.
