Ritmos Latinos was established in the 1990s as a University of Arizona salsa dance club. Not many know that the dance we know today as Salsa originated in Cuba as a style called Casino. We revitalize this Cuban tradition by teaching Casino to students and community members across Tucson. To stay culturally grounded our teachers, who are all volunteers, build time into their lives to travel to Cuba and Casino dance events across America. Our Community has been growing for 25 years now and our love for dance is only getting bigger. From high level engineers and planetary scientists to realtors and architects, our leadership community is as eclectic as it is passionate about bringing this dance to the people of Tucson.
