Casino Dancing

Casino is a social dance developed in the mid-1950s’ in Havana, Cuba. It’s the evolution of different dancing genres: Contradanza, Danza, Danzon, Chachacha, Mambo y Son. People start dancing this new format at the Sports Clubs (Casinos Deportivos) which were referred to as “Casinos”.

Usually marketed as Cuban Salsa, Casino Dance (it’s real name) reached the top of popularity in the 70's. and early 80’s. Casino is danced with a partner and also in formations called Ruedas (“wheel” or circle where two or more couples switch partners).
