Casa Cubana is taking a break from Thursday night classes over the Christmas period. Classes resume at the Italian Club as normal on Thursday 12th January. For details on classes click here.
Saturdays at Salamanca continue throughout the period. Keep an eye on our facebook page for all the latest news on what’s happening salsa-wise in Hobart.
There will be no Thursday night salsa on 20th October as the Italian Club will be closed due to the Hobart Show Day public holiday.
Thursday night classes and social dancing will resume on Thursday 27th October.
For those of you who have been attending classes recently you would have heard us playing this song pretty regularly – it is Pip and Nick’s current favourite! We love the build up then the explosion of brass, and then it just keeps pushing along.

Airagdin Pavon More “El Moro”
Born in Havana, Cuba, Moro studied dance at the Academia Nacional de Narisco Medina, and performed with many prestigious Cuban Dance Companies. He was first solo dancer and choreographer with “Havana Nights”, one of the largest independently produced shows ever to leave Cuba, touring extensively throughout Mexico, Central Europe, Scandinavia, Japan and Australia. Moro has worked as a dance teacher in Oslo, Stockholm and throughout Australia. He specialises in Afro-Cuban Dance, Rumba, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Son, Salsa and Dominican Bachata.
In 2004, Moro established Buena Vista Dance, to teach Cuban Dance and promote Cuban culture in Australia. He has choreographed and performed in various shows, including Cuban Folkloric Company, World Salsa Congress, Afro-Cuban Express, and NZ Pacific Salsa Congress. In 2009, Buena Vista Dance won the National Cubamemucho Salsa Rueda Competition in Melbourne, in which Moro choreographed, directed and performed. The group went on to represent Australia at the Cubamemucho 2010 World Rueda Championships in Munich, where they placed third. In 2009, 2010 and 2012 he and his partner won the Australian Bachata Championship.
We can’t wait for Moro to share his vast experience and knowledge with us!
