Whilst developing the guide I spent a long time researching the background to Rueda de Casino. The guide includes a short section called ‘Further explorations’ which provides weblinks to some of the many sources which I investigated, and on which the history section in Chapter 1 is based. Most of these weblinks are reproduced here. Some of the best sources are not in English, and if you need help to translate any of these I recommend the online translators by Microsoft (Bing) or Google (Translate).
I don’t have any original videos to offer on the blog, but have included numerous links to Youtube videoclips which illustrate the historical roots of Rueda de Casino in difference dance forms. I have also included links to a more eclectic set of Rueda-related videos which I enjoy watching, and which may be of interest.
