We are less than a few weeks away from the upcoming San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival and more information is now available for the event. Below is an updated schedule of events that you can refer to throughout the event. Don’t forget that the entire event is full of dance workshops, lessons, performances by some of the most gifted dancers in the world and of course great social dancing available for you to take part in.
Kizomba dance is uniquely African and has its origins in the music of the Angolan people. Described as a very sensual dance similar to bachata and merengue, it is distinct in its African rhythm that sets it apart from the traditional latin music in the dance scene. If you’ve never seen the dance before here is a short video clip showing it in action:
During the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival you can have an opportunity to learn from master Kizomba instructor Lucia Nogueira in one of the many workshops to be held over the course of the Labor Day Weekend. The San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is August 28th through the 31st during Labor Day Weekend and you can still secure your tickets before it sells out on the official website for the event.

It’s hard to believe it has been 6 years since the inception of the Sabor on the Bay Yacht Parties, but it’s not hard to understand the events’ popularity to this day.

The 3 hour cruise is a great harbor excursion with the right crowd indeed!
The 1,000 capacity Yacht (pictured below) offers great amenities during the cruise including 5 fully stocked bars and a special cigar lounge area to take advantage of during the event. Don’t forget to dress in all white as the theme for the party is dress in all white!

Halloween will soon be upon us all and along with the usual costume parties there are also masquerade type parties (mask only, dress to impress) that abound during this time. One unique event taking place October 20 will be the Moonlight Masquerade Salsa & Bachata Yacht Party presented by Rock Sugar Marketing.
This particular yacht party will be unique in that it will be a masquerade theme where dancers are encouraged to bring masks during this 4 hour cruise of Mission Bay. The semi formal masquerade ball (guys this means you can opt for a tie if you want, ladies can wear their special black dress) will feature Johnny Polanco y Su Conjunto Amistad with live salsa music to dance the night away.
San Diego has seen some movement in the salsa club scene as of late with some closures and management changes. With the closure of salsa Tuesdays at the Keating Hotel, a new opportunity for great salsa is starting this Tuesday September 18th in the Gaslamp Quarter. The new club, presented by Rumba Entertainment, will launch at the Onxy Room located on Fifth Avenue. The club has a good reputation as a regular club so it will be interesting to see how it fares as a salsa dance venue.
