Learn AfroCuban movement inherant to Cuban Comparsas with Lisbeth Pedrosa.

Sun 12.13 4-6 PM $12
5401 S Claiborne Ave

Arrive early to settle in and be ready to dance at 4. Learn key body movements that you can incorporate into Casino, Salsa, Sueltas and, of course, Congo Lines or the New Orleans version - Second Line.


"Comparsas are large ensembles of musicians, singers and dancers with a specific costume and choreography which perform in the street carnivals of Santiago de Cuba and Havana.

The conga refers to the musicians and the comparsa refers to the group of dancers. There are many similitudes between a Cuban conga and comparsa to a New Orleans second line."


About Lisbeth:

Growing up right in the middle of the Special Period in Cuba was not easy. My mom worked very hard so I could have what I needed but many times it seemed like it was getting more, more difficult to even do that. One of the many things my mom tough me was to dance. I will always say that dance have always been an important part of my life. When I danced in Cuba it made feel free, I was in my own world, things were easy not hard; it was something that belonged to me and I did not have to wait until I had money to have it. I am dance, dance is me!!!
