Timba Street sports a modern Cuban salsa-fusion of Son Montuno, Cuban Rumba, and Afro-Cuban rhythms. Directed by Havana native Aramis Pazos Barrera and featuring members from different parts of D.C. and the United States, the ensemble strives to inspire its audience to dance while introducing this lesser-known, modern style of Cuban salsa. Leading this dance party is DC Casineros, a world-renowned dance company that performs and teaches Cuban dance styles including Rueda de Casino, Afro-Cuban rumba, Cha Cha Cha, Mambo, Danzón, and Yoruba Orisha dance. Free salsa class beginning at 5 p.m.
