    Today Bookoo Rueda joined the Caribbean Vernacular and Social Dance class at Tulane to introduce them to Rueda de Casino.  I've never noticed just how many of the basic calls reference baseball until teaching baseball players today.  The pitchers, short stop and dance majors all did a phenomenal job!

Bookoo Rueda was founded in 2014 on a dare.  That dare became a mission.  We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization connecting people, communities, and cultures through dance.  We take dance out of the studio and into the community.
