Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Ritmo Bello!

Sunday, December 13, 2009

On behalf of Ritmo Bello, I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe, happy New Year.  2009 was a tough year for many of us, but it was great to have lots of fun filled events with the San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meetup Group to help us get through it.

Thanks to everyone in the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dance community for your continued support.  We hope you can all make it out to our first official event for 2010 at 1st Wednesday’s of the Month with Meetup.com at Cafe Sevilla January 6.  I plan on giving away FREE EK Clothing Latin Dance 2010 calendars at 8pm sharp (see the pictures above)!  See you all in 2010!

Christmas Gifts for the Salsa and Latin Dancers in Your Life

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Okay, if you are like me you are probably not done with your Christmas shopping. Indeed, I still have many gifts to get for all types of people on my gift-giving list.  Some of those folks, surprising enough, are Salsa and Latin dancers. I thought I would share (Shoooo! Don’t tell them!) some ideas I have for gift giving to them and anyone inclined to dance.

An easy gift idea for a salsa dancer is salsa music. Depending on the person’s current collection of salsa music, you may have to think outside the box to get them something unique. I found one salsa compilation by Dimelo! Records that is different enough to warrant my writing about it in this article. The CD, a salsa Christmas compilation titled “Ponle Salsa a Tu Navidad,” features Orquesta Tobaco y Ron and Chino Espinoza jamming out to all sorts of Christmas tunes.

Another great gift idea is something for the salsa dancer to wear. EK Clothing has some great clothing for women that want some style when they hit the dance floor. They also have a great selection of salsa dance shoes (check out some of them in this video above) that are functional yet comfortable for regular use.

For salsa dancers that are guys, sometimes simple gifts mean the most. A great gift for the avid salsa dancer could be as simple as handkerchiefs that they can use when they go out and dance (you know to wipe all the sweat off with class). They are inexpensive and if you really want to spruce them up you can have them embroidered with their initials.

If you have other ideas for Christmas gifts let me know via Twitter at @RitmoBello.  Merry Christmas!
