Steve Frankel is an assistant instructor for Rueda Con Ritmo. He had already danced other styles for many years when in 2001 he attended one of Sidney's week-long Casino-style workshops in Miami and fell hard for Cuban Salsa and Rueda. He loved the feeling of connection from the circle of dancers moving to the music. Shortly thereafter, Steve began his own classes in Mountain View, which he continues to teach weekly. Over the years, Steve has lead Ruedas at weddings, concerts, and even at the International Space University in Barcelona.
