San Diego Salsa Dance Deals Abound in the Lead up to Black Friday and Christmas

Saturday, November 11, 2017

It’s hard to believe that 2017  is almost over but with Veteran’s day past the focus is now inevitably on Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season.  If you are looking for some good deals on anything in the salsa dancing world you are in luck.

From dance shoes to salsa dancing lessons you are sure to find some great deals to make your holiday season more memorable.  For example Majesty in Motion is offering their salsa dance lessons at more then 50% off when you use their Groupon promotion.  Be aware some some restrictions might apply (I believe this Groupon is for new clients of theirs only) but if you are looking to convince your significant other or want to give the gift of lessons this is a great deal.  You can learn more about this particular promotion here.

As Black Friday approaches another great place to keep in mind for your salsa gear is EK Clothing.  You can find specialty salsa shoes for men and women (including dancing boots) along with other items to make sure you are ready for the dance floor.

Of course you will also find special deals for places to go dancing as venues offer special dinner/dance incentives and Christmas/New Year’s party opportunities.  A good place to find out what is happening is the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing meetup group.

Whatever you do make sure you enjoy the holiday season and do some dancing today!

Meet and Dance with Someone New at the November 2nd 1st Thursdays of the Month Event

Sunday, October 22, 2017

The next 1st Thursday’s of the month event at Cafe Sevilla is coming up November 2nd and with it a great opportunity to do some fun dancing in San Diego. The event is held each first Thursday of each month as a special venue to meet and greet with dancers before the main salsa lesson and dancing begins.  The idea is to allow people who are new to San Diego, new to salsa dancing in general and who have never been to Cafe Sevilla to come out and talk to each other without the loud music that is sure to follow later.

The meet and greet begins sharply at 8pm and last about 1 hour.  Immediately after you can take advantage of the free dance lessons offered by Majesty and Motion.  Once that is done the dancing begins and you can dance the night away.

The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group will be there and we would love to see you there too.

See you all at Cafe Sevilla Thursday November 2nd!
