The performance group presented at the San Francisco Salsa Rueda Festival four years running and at various venues in Oregon, USA. In 2012, Dave began teaching in Playa del Carmen, Mexico with the school “Encubate”, where, inspired by the Rueda Llanta structure, he developed a variation called Rueda trébol.
