Pre-release of the Rueda standard updates!

Every third year the Rueda standard is updated, every third year since the origin: 2002 – 2005 – 2008 – 2011 – 2014 – 2017.

The changes will first be presented at the SalsaNor Rueda Congress in Stavanger! Videos of the various new Rueda figures will be published in the Rueda Standard YouTube channel during the fall 2017.

At the Rueda Congress 2017 there are 3 specific Rueda workshops teaching the new Rueda figures. Some of the other Rueda workshops (and the Ábaco workshop) will also include some of the new Rueda standard figures.

Here is a pre-release of the NEW Rueda Standard document.
