Since 2010 Minneami was known as the “ Salsa Public Option “ offering free Rueda classes first at the “ Tillie’s Bean Coffee shop and then at the Plymouth Congregational Church. We wanted to offer the Miami Salsa experience to Minnesotans. ( Hence the name, “ Minneami. “ ) Unfortunately, it took many volunteers working as a team to make that happen and it became non sustainable. So for now Minneami is not offering the free classes. However, the free Rueda classes are still offered on Thursdays at the Church by the group known on FB as, “ Vivir mi vida. “ Currently Minneami offers free pot luck Rueda parties, private lessons and maintains a performance team which practices regularly. We also offer a free video training program of the entire Rueda syllabus on this website. We at Minneami are trying to organize structured Rueda classes again so please check this website every so often for updates!
