SON Workshops

Next session: Saturday 28 May


Arts Centre Washington 2.00 - 4.00 pm.



Improvers/Intermediate Son



See below for details of times and location.

Son Cubano - the mother of salsa.


A very gentle and elegant dance. Son is often played during salsa classes or during social dancing, although you may think it's slow salsa. 


We will be using traditional Son music, some of which you may well know. But once you dance Son you will hear familiar music differently (e.g. songs by Alexander Abreu or Leoni Torres).


Be careful when researching Son Cubano on the internet, many videos are of cabaret style, with very flamboyant performances.
