A Few Good Resources for those Attending the San Diego Salsa Festival this Week

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Welcome to everyone attending the San Diego Salsa Festival! The Festival kicks off this Thursday night with the Festival Pre-Party and visitors from all over the world will be here in San Diego to share in their love of the dance.

I’ve received many emails from visiting attendees and based on my many communications with those visitors I decided to write up this post listing some handy resources here in San Diego.

First, a good starting point for interacting with the local San Diego salsa scene is the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group. Along with RSVP pages listed for some of the major events associated with the festival (such as Opening Night Festivities), the group is a good way to meet local dancers and interact with them. Make sure to take advantage of the message board system to network with other dancers during the Festival.


If you are looking for more general information about San Diego a good resource is the San Diego Conventions & Visitors Bureau website. You’ll find information ranging from good places to eat around town to useful ways to get around.

Of course, make sure to check Ritmo Bello for updates regarding the actual festival this week. If anyone visiting has any questions feel free to contact me too. You can find me on twitter as well at http://twitter.com/RitmoBello to follow updates regarding the Festival.

See you all at the 3rd Annual San Diego Salsa Festival!

Believe it or not, September is not that far away and with it comes the 3rd Annual San Diego Salsa Festival!

As it gets closer to the event (September 17th – 20th), I’ll be writing about things that may be of interest to those attending. Here are some of the things we already know about the upcoming San Diego Salsa Festival:

1. September 17th there will be a Pre-Party w/ Victor and Burju and Ana and Joel From Boston. This should be a fun way to jump start the rest of the weekend.

2. A number of D.J.’s are committed to spin including D.J. Robby LA, D.J. Sugar Philly,  D.J.Carlos Miranda LA & D.J. Lobo LA with more to be confirmed.

3. There will be 2 Dance Rooms For Evening Social Dancing.

4. Over 50 Performers from around the nation will be showcasing their talent.

5. There will be over 40 Workshops from beginner to advanced and specialized classes such as Zumba, Afro Cuban, Rumba, and Samba.

6. All night dancing!

7. Jack N Jill Competitions.

You can still purchase full event passes and I’d urge you all to get yours before they sell out. I already did!
