Casino is a dance of the people.  It is all about self-expression and is a varied in style as are the people who dance it.  While there are similarities and shared basic elements, every individual gives it their own personality. Many people like to step out from pure, traditional Casino to bring elements of other dances into it – improvising, creating, expressing themselves through dance.
