ABOUT OUR CLASSES
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”.
