Ritmos Latinos

Ritmos Latinos was established in the 1990s as a University of Arizona salsa dance club. The club is run by an electoral board consisting of UA students and faculty and a dedicated core of instructors. They dance to promote interest in Latin music and dance at the University of Arizona and fellowship among students, faculty, staff, and the Tucson community. Volunteer instructors teach Cuban Rueda de Casino, a form of dancing salsa in a group circle, in which a caller calls out the steps and dancers rotate partners throughout the dance (like a casino wheel). The group also offers a new Rueda de Bachata class. The club is open to students as well as all Tucson community members.
