Okay, where are the peeps from: puerto rico, france, spain, italy, south america, mexico, montreal, japan, hong kong, korea and other countries/cities. Hey, what's happening in your local area? Let us know.
Also, places I go in london (which is where I'm from origionally) - all LA/London style:
Monday - Bar Salsa on tottenham court road is good... Mario and Suzanna teach every monday and the club afterwards is good. http://www.barsalsa.info/
Tuesday - Sound in liecester sq, or Bar Rumba. At sound I think they teach PR / cuban mix, I've only been to lessons there once... the venue is a big club so don't expect everyone there to be a dancer / sober... but it's quite fun and there are some superb dancers. Bar Rumba is also quite good, but the standard of dancing possibly lower - Mario also teaches in my home town St Albans on tuesdays (20 mins outside london) http://www.millionmovesman.com http://www.soundlondon.com/ http://www.barrumba.co.uk/
Wednesday - La finca do classes which were good last time I went (with dancing after), or... SOW with leon rose (although this is a little out of the way - last time there weren't so many people in the lessons, which meant the standard was higher, and you got more one on 1 tuition - practice & dancing after) http://www.salsoteca.com/lessons.htm http://www.salsalife.co.uk/
Thursday - My Place! Kensington.... Mario and Suzanna's main gig... the level of tuition is higer than bar salsa on mondays and the dancers afterwards are (generally) better. My favorite night in london! http://www.millionmovesman.com
Friday & Sat - No idea... Friday&Sat are normally my drunken-non-salsa-friends days. :lol:
Sunday - SOS, with leon, my second favorite night, although if you're not a 'regular face' and are wanting to go for the advanced class...be sure to have a word with Leon first... it's 'invite only'. Lot's of dancing after, and good dancers. http://www.salsalife.co.uk/
Hi you all.......this is a letter coming from my dance instructor here in Jamaica. I wanted to share it with you:
2005 promises to be a great year for the salsa dance community.
Presently the main salsa dance clubs are all located in the New Kingston area and they are...........
Jonkanoo Lounge, Hilton Hotel (Thursdays) & Mingles Night Club, Courtleigh Hotel (Saturdays). For latin style cabaret, check out Carlos Cafe on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays (2 shows nightly).
The buzz is on in Ocho Rios ......DJ Alexis (my good friend) is actively introducing Salsa there and the community has responded with enthusiasm. He is presently relocating & I'm being updated weekly..........I'll keep you informed.
I have been approached on several occasions to host Salsa Dance contests @ Jonkanoo Lounge but I have not been able to do this due to my schedule.
Ted Emmanuel (sponsor/businessman), through his staunch dedication & determination to expose salsa to the masses has offered to take on this responsibility & as a result, the contests are expected to start soon.
Jamaica has embraced this vibrant & exciting style of dance & we at www.salsajamaica.com are committed to exposing it across the island. We look forward to hearing from you (where ever you are) & what ever you can submit will be greatly appreciated (pictures, music, comments, etc.)
Woohoo, Jamaica, how exciting! Thanks JSpice. That's cool.
Still, where are the peeps from: puerto rico, france, spain, italy, south america, mexico, montreal, japan, hong kong, korea and other countries/cities. Hey, what's happening in your local area? Let us know.
