Yohan y Elaine

Hola amigos, welcome to our dance journey! Elaine Runderkamp (Born in Amsterdam, Netherlands) and Yohan Fernández (Born in Havana, Cuba) are the founders of dance academy Casino de Cuba.

Werkend zoals gewoonlijk

“Freedom is a state of mind"

Normally we would have a lovely night of Timba + Afro classes today. But due to the tightened Corona measures, we have to miss our students for 2 weeks.

Of course it's a shame as we felt in such a nice flow, but this is what NL needs now.

We’re still available for private lessons on request.

Stay healthy and keep moving!💃🏼 🕺🏽

Focus on the beauty of life, remember that we’re living in abundance.💫

Much love and see you soon!❤️

Yohan & Elaine

This week we danced Palo🤩 with 2 amazing groups of students.

Palo is a religion where there is a close relationship with our ancestor spirits and the dead. At certain ceremonial moments we have a spiritual connection with them.

Its practice is conga (black) magic where the control of supernatural powers are represented, such as all types of vegetation, waters, lands, stones, animals and mountain sticks. In each of these natural elements they find power to make their spells that serve them in search of health, well-being, money, etc.

Love sharing our passion with you❤️

Oshun represents the sweet waters of the world, streams, springs and rivers, love and fertility. 💛Her moves are sensual and provocative; she smears herself with honey 🍯to attract male Orisha Oggun from the mountains...😏

Salsa Timba + Afro - Yohan y Elaine

To close our first LEVEL UP Timba + Afro course with a lot of energy, we decided to dance for Orisha Oyá yesterday.🤩

Oya represents the wind and storms🌪 and has a strong character. She is the owner of the cemetery⚰️ and spirits. Oyá is a fierce warrior and the lady of the rainbow, 🌈that’s why she wears 9 colours. She also symbolizes the air we breathe.

We’d like to thank all our amazing students for the trust, your efforts and wonderful energy the past 5 weeks!❤️

Well done everyone👏🏻👏🏽

Buenas tardes a todos/ Goedemiddag allemaal☀️,

On the 25th of October we’re taking you with us back to the 19th century to the ‘solares’ and ports in Havana & Matanzas, where the Rumba was born and created by Afro-Cubans.

Yambú

Yambú is one of the oldest Rumba styles. It’s quite similar as Guaguancó, as it’s also a seduction game between man and woman.

However the main differences are: the rhythm is slower, Yambú is danced with the same clave as in Son (3 x 2).

As Yambú is mainly danced by eldery people, another big difference is is that there is no “vacunao” performed (pelvic movement of erotic significance).

Guaguancó

Guaguancó is a seduction and playful dance where the man tries to conquer the woman, waiting for the right moment to make the gesture that simulates sexual penetration called “vacunao”.

The woman’s role is to avoid the man’s advances and protect her pelvis with her skirt or scarf (or simulates this movement with her hands).

Columbia

Columbia is one of the dance manifestations within the Rumba that is generally a dance for men. Although there were rumberas women back in the old days (and still today) who also dance Colombia. Like Elaine for example😉...

This dance is normally performed in a circle where men one by one are showing their masculinity. It’s like a ‘who is the coolest guy’ contest.

*Please reserve your spot via [email protected] if you wish to join.

*Limited spots available

*We keep 1.5m distance during the classes, no partner needed.

*Early Bird Price: €47,-
Price after 13 October: €77,-

@Brasa Studios, Kuiperbergweg 31, Amsterdam. FREE parking

Any questions, please send us a pm.

We look forward to ‘Rumbear’ with you!!💃🏼🕺🏽

Muchos saludos,

Yohan & Elaine

Salsa Timba + Afro - Casino de Cuba

Another fun night yesterday.🤩

We danced for Orisha Obbatala🤍

Obbatala is the greatest Orisha, creator of the earth and sculptor of the human being. He represents intelligence and wisdom, the owner of everything that’s white (which stands for peace and purity), of the head, of thoughts and dreams. He is the son of Olofin and Oloddumare.

He comes to the earth as an old man, that’s why some of his dance moves are with our backs bend. 👴🏻

We mixed Obbatala’s moves with the beautiful salsa music of Havana D' Primera.💫

Song: 🎶Lamento Yoruba - Havana D’Primera

Thanks to all our amazing students for these special moments❤️

Osmel Silva y Mas - Como Mi Tierra No Hay (Video Oficial)

Wowww🤩... how beautiful this video clip of our friend Osmel Silva.

The lyrics of this song, and to see the whole experience again is giving us goose bumbs.

This was one of our last moments together in February, right before relocating (back) to the Netherlands. Havana 🇨🇺 and all these people have a special place in our heart❤️

Enjoy it!!

Casino de Cuba presents🥁:
Cuban Salsa LEVEL UP courses (5-weeks)

✩ Monday Sept 14 - Oct 12

19:00 - 21:00 Cuban Salsa Timba + Afro (Adv)

This class consists of Partner work & Styling.
First half hour will be spent on learning Afro-Cuban movements with the original toques & cantos (drums and chants). We’d like to make an emphasis on this, so the Styling part will be more easy and you’ll gain better quality movements. At the same time, it will expand your knowledge and connection with the Cuban Salsa music.🕺🏽

✩ Wednesday Sept 16 - Oct 14

19:00 - 20:00 Rumba Guaguancó (open level)

Guaguancó is a seduction and playful Afro-dance where the man tries to conquer the woman, waiting for the right moment to make the gesture that simulates sexual penetration called ‘vacunao’. The woman’s role is to avoid the man’s advances and protect her pelvis when the vacunao comes her way with her skirt or scarf (or simulates this movement with her hands).💃🏼

20:00 - 21:00 Son Cubano Partner work (int/adv)

“El Son es lo más sublime para el alma divertir” Means: Son is the most sublime to entertain the soul. This traditional musical genre was born at the end of the 19th century in Cuba. It is a beautiful, elegant partner dance which later gave rise to the Casino (Cuban Salsa). In these classes you will learn figures like el Paseo, el Dedazo as well as Plancha and Tornillo techniques.🕺🏽

>> Attention for the Timba and Son classes: registrations with partner take precedence over individual registrations

ABOUT YOHAN & ELAINE

Yohan and Elaine are a passionate Cuban & Dutch dance couple who gained most of their Cuban dance experience by working at the company Proyecto Rueda de Casino (Yohan from 2016-2020 and Elaine from 2018-2020) in Havana.

During this job, they performed multiple times per week at the most popular salsa hot spots of Havana like Jardines 1830 and Salon Rojo Del Capri. Yohan and Elaine were lucky to work closely with the founders of the Rueda de Casino and performed together with Cuba’s best artists like Elito Revé y su Charangon, El Niño y la Verdad & Havana D'Primera in music videos, concerts and Cuban TV shows.

Yohan also formed part of El Conjunto Folklórico Nacional de Cuba, the most representative company for maintaining and cultivating the country's folk music and dances for more than 50 years. He worked there from August 2017 till June 2019 and one of the most experienced teachers of this institute, Lazara Nápoles, has been Elaine's private teacher during her years in Cuba.
