The theme for this February edition is “Dress in Red” so if you have a favorite red dress, pants, shoes, whatever this will be the night to wear it. Last year when we held this event at Cafe Sevilla the whole club was filled with people dressed in red and we hope to do the same this year.
This monthly event held at Café Sevilla is a great way to break the ice with new people in a safe and friendly environment.Don’t forget the event is FREE to attend!
The event is open to everyone so feel free to come alone or bring any friends. We’ll meet downstairs at 8pm in the VIP area of club that will be reserved for our group. Just look for the Meetup.com signs. Valeriewill give a free salsa lesson starting at 8:30pm.
At first glance you probably wouldn’t think that San Diego has much going on apart from the traditional surfing and other recreational diversions for which this place is known.It takes a simple look under that well known surface to see that San Diego is a teeming hot bed of salsa dance talent.
Much of that dance talent is due in part to the myriad of salsa dance competition teams that offer a wide array of styles and philosophies of salsa dance.San Diego is fortunate to have a salsa scene influenced by such a great group of performers that help inspire those new to the scene to learn more about the dance. Here at Ritmo Bello I’ve been privileged to get to know these performance groups over the years and I wanted to highlight some of them here.
These and many other dance teams which I haven’t mentioned here all deserve to be recognized for the great exposure they give salsa dancing to the general public. For many people here in San Diego, joining a dance team is a great way to accelerate your learning of salsa dance while expressing yourself through performance.
If you’ve had a good experience with a local San Diego dance team feel free to leave a comment on this post.
For those of you new to San Diego and/or new to the dance scene here, check out the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group. The 1,000 + member group offers a wide variety of events that are posted by many of the dance studios and instructors that make up our dance community.
You’ll find everything from dance auditions for performance teams, latin dance themed house parties, and simply getting together for a night of dancing at all of San Diego’s great venues.
The group is made possible through our many Meetup.com sponsors and through member donations (the group is free to join though!). Come check out the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group!
