Ritmos Spring Workshop & Fiesta with Daybert Linares

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Location: Harmony School, 909 E 2nd St, Bloomington, IN 47401

Ritmos Latinos presents a day of Cuban dance workshops with Daybert Linares, followed by the Spring Fiesta!


Daybert Linares is, first and foremost, a nerd. He may be doing this dancing thing as a hobby, but he doesn't let that get in the way of a good fantasy or science fiction book or movie, board games, and learning the theme song for "Game of Thrones" on the piano. When he's not being a nerd, he is teaching Spanish at a High School in Maryland, as his day job. It is only when he is doing none of the former that he does this dancing thing - which includes doing research on Cuban popular dance music, updating his blog, Son y Casino, and teaching Cuban dance workshops. Born and raised in Cuba (not that this qualifies him, or anything), Daybert has been sporadically teaching Cuban dances such as son, son montuno, casino, rueda de casino, and chachachá for over seven years, focusing on the social aspect of these dancers—which is why you won’t see him perform. He has taught workshops in Albuquerque, Atlanta, Boston, Baltimore and the southern Maryland areas, New York City, Northern Virginia, Philadelphia, Savannah, and Washington, D.C.

"I just wanted to thank you and the rest of your organization for hosting such a great event this past weekend. The workshop was amazing and the fiesta was so much fun! Your group made us feel very welcome and the quality of the dancing was fantastic. Isaac, Anthony, and myself definitely want to come back to another Ritmos event and bring the rest of our Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky crew with us! Thanks again for everything and have a great week!" – Melissa West-Koistila
