San Diego Salsa Dancing at Aubergine: How Long Will it Last?

Sexy Salsa Divas of San Diego Performing

How long will salsa dancing be available in San Diego’s downtown on Friday nights?

Hopefully for a long while since Aubergine’s debut of salsa dancing went extremely well, at least from a dancer’s perspective. While others may be evaluating the profitability of having salsa dancing at Aubergine in terms of drinks sold and other such factors, I think it’s equally important to look at the people and groups that were attracted to this new salsa night.

Indeed, the San Diego salsa community came out en masse to support the new venue. There were many familiar faces from the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup , as well as major San Diego dance studios being represented. A number of notable performances were conducted by Majesty in Motion, A Time to Dance Studio, and the Sexy Salsa Divas . The video posted here shows the young ladies during the performance that night.

Whether or not the salsa night remains a normal mainstay for Aubergine, I think the majority of people in attendance appreciated the ability to have salsa dancing at a venue like Aubergine. I have to say that it was interesting to go from the part of the club that was hosting the salsa dancing and to visit the other areas of the club that were open to hip hop. I noticed upon my return to the salsa areas that many of the people from the hip hop room were curiously showing up to watch the salsa dancing. A couple of those people found themselves on the salsa dance floor too.

Overall, I think there is a future for salsa dancing in the Gaslamp Quarter on Friday nights. Let’s hope Aubergine thinks the same thought.  Thanks to A Time to Dance Studio and other San Diego salsa supporters for bringing salsa dancing to downtown San Diego on Friday nights.

    I think the was good however all the salsa people were mostly all gone by 12:30-12:45. I mean this was a weekend night. A Time to Dance needs to start the party at 10:00 like most spots on the weekend, not eight thirty. What do you think?? Im sure you are aware that in other cities people salsa into the wee hours, thats the way to do it. San Diego crowd has low energy. Thanks

  2. I agree with you, at least in part. I think it would be better if the salsa started a little later since it is a weekend night.

    I disagree with you, though that the San Diego crowd has low energy! I just think we all need to become accustomed to salsa dancing downtown on a weekend.
