Wikibook for Rueda Commands[edit]

I created a wikibook for rueda commands. I did not take the time to do it all in english, but the german version is more advanced. Get-back-world-respect 11:38, 24 May 2004 (UTC)

Excellently done.

I get an empty wikibook page when i click on the German version.Kdammers 06:41, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Spanish Wikipedia Rueda Article[edit]

Let's get a "rueda" Spanish page!!!!! gbwr alreadz has worked up the wikibook thing, but some-one searching in Spanish for rueda gets nothing more than an article about ruedas (wheels). Kdammers 07:19, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Spanish, English and Italian Step descriptions for Rueda de Casino[edit]

You can find Spanish, English and Italian step descriptions for Rueda de Casino moves at AbsoluteSalsa You can also find another excellent article on what is Rueda de Casino at SalsaPower.com, the most extensive website on Cuban dance and music anywhere on the internet. [1] Many pages are bilingual, Spanish/English, Italian/English or Portuguese/English. Also an excellent resource for finding clubs and Cuban, Casino style salsa classes almost anywhere in the world. See the SalsaCity section for listings in more than 65 countries.


Check out cruzy.org Salsa Rueda Santa Cruz for step by step instructions on many beginner moves. I would disagree that you can't dance Rueda in another place -- my husband and I traveled to London and Munich and were able to play along with the slightly different calls. You need to be a good follower, mostly.... Practicing Rueda helps you learn that skill --watching the circle and dancigngat the same time. Some fun moves missing from the list: toca el hombro, toca la rodilla, toca la cadera, la cabeza, etc. -- basically the leader turns to the right and the follower to the left and touches the relevant body part on the "one" count, kind of like "un fly" or "una foto." How about "ni pa' mi, ni pa' ti" -- on count of seven, clap facing the circle, then "pattycake" the next person (again leader turn to right, followers to left), clap again on count of three, then pattycake the partner you were dancing with, repeat until call of dile que no.

A different dance[edit]

There is an older dance called rueda. We should have an English article on it, too. See the Spanish wik. Kdammers 06:43, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Casino (salsa dance) Inappropriately Redirects Here?[edit]

The article Casino (salsa dance) redirects to this article about Rueda, but that might be inappropriate. Is it possible for Casino style salsa to refer to just Cuban-style one-on-one salsa, as in a partner dance, not a group dance? If so, they there should be a separate article for the partner dance, and perhaps a disambiguation page for what the term "casino" could refer to in regards to salsa (the partner dance and the group dance).

Swing Rueda Link in See Also Section Is Off-Topic[edit]

I don't believe that linking to the Swing Rueda article is appropriate, because:

  1. Rueda is not influenced by Swing Rueda. Swing Rueda appears to be only slightly related to Rueda de Casino, in that it's a group round dance with a caller, but it's based on Lindy Hop, not salsa.
  2. There appears to be a Wikipedia Editor Conflict of Interest with the Swing Rueda article, because it links to swingrueda.com, a commercial site.
  3. The Swing Rueda article is a stub.

Is there any reason why Swing Rueda should continue to be linked to in the See also section? Rumba y Son (talk) 09:58, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
