This fun dance originated in Cuba in the 1950s. In Rueda, the followers are passed around in the circle, with the leaders rapidly exchanging partners, and numerous complicated moves are done in synchronization to the beat of Salsa music. Each move has a name, many having hand signals, and are called by the leader of the Rueda. The moves, which are also known as "calls," are sometimes called in extremely quick succession, creating a very dynamic and exciting atmosphere for everyone involved. The hand signals are designed for people to be able to dance a Rueda in a loud club setting. In addition, Rueda allows many to take part in the action! As few as two couples can dance Casino Rueda, up to as large as a space can hold! Sometimes as many as fifty couples dance the Rueda, even in circles within circles!

A wonderful new group dynamic occurs when dancing Casino Rueda. There is a unique level of awareness, unmatched in other dances, required by the group for the dance to look stylish, flow smoothly, and above all, to keep it entertaining and fun for those dancing as well as for those watching! Dancers learn to open their sphere of awareness and their peripheral vision, beyond the normal restricted space of solo or partner dancing. In this way, dancers coordinate and adjust their individual feel, timing, and style to make the Rueda work. It is very exciting when the entire Rueda is moving smoothly and on beat! A unique group atmosphere develops as you feel the whole Rueda flow, while listening to the wonderful Afro-Cuban/Latin-American music. It is simply an exciting dance that is fun to do and a pleasure to watch.
