"Rueda Fresca" (Fresh Wheel) features two amateur dance troupes of young people from Santiago de Cuba whose specialty is rueda de casino. These dancers are representative of a growing number of Cuban youth who are reconnecting with this dance tradition and making it their own by inventing new turns, moves, and stylings. While still popular as a fun party actively, the latest wave of rueda de casino from Cuba is designed for performance.

The performance style demonstrated in "Rueda Fresca" is highly inventive and complex. A single call represents not just two or three moves but an extended series of turns and dance maneuvers that often reflect a theme, as does the call "Festival de Jumping". These new calls are best described as rueda choreographies.

"Rueda Fresca" is organized into three parts.
1 - 13 rueda choreographies by performing group "Casino.com" demonstrated at regular tempo, and also broken down with counts at a much slower tempo.

2 - 11 rueda choreographies by performing group "Team Cuba" demonstrated at regular tempo, and also broken down with counts at a much slower tempo.

3 - live rueda performance event with performing groups "Casino.com" and "Impacto" with some of the same moves plus many more.
