The guide

This site is a companion to ‘Dancing the Beautiful Wheel’, a guide to Rueda de Casino, published in January 2013. The guide is available as a printed book in hard covers; 312 pages and 25 illustrations, size 233mm x 156mm (9in x 6in).

On these pages you will find some background to the guide, and find out how to buy a copy.  Other pages include material that didn’t make it into the final version.  Also included are weblinks from the guide, as well as further links to Youtube videoclips which either illustrate the roots of Rueda or which are of general Rueda interest (unfortunately none of these are original).

If you have any feedback on the guide or ideas about how to use it to build interest in Rueda then please do let me know. You can contact me by posting a comment, or by email at

I hope that the guide and this site will in some way add to your enjoyment of the many fascinating variations of Rueda de Casino.
