Target audience
Dancers who want to learn more about Cuban Timba music, discover more artists and songs, and be able to begin understanding musicality for casino dancers.
Please note: This is not a class for musicians about how to play Timba music. It’s mainly for casino dancers, about the music’s origins, artists and songs.

Open level. No prior knowledge required, although since we’ll be talking about Timba music from a casino dancer’s perspective, it’s a plus if you have some casino/salsa dance experience.
