Although the 10th Annual San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is months away I want to let you know about an important change to the event. In past years the event was held in late August/early September but this year the festival will take place on November 25-27th (which coincidentally is Thanksgiving weekend).
The new date for the event may make it easier for folks to attend since it falls during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and will also help motivate people from out of town (i.e. coming from snow states) to enjoy the nice San Diego weather.

The 7th Annual All White Boat Party is set to launch on June 13, 2015 and if you’ve been on the cruise in the past you know what fun is in store for you again this year.
If you are new to the event,though, I can try to paint a picture of what you can expect. The Inspiration Yacht (the largest of the vessels provided by Hornblower Cruises) will be jammed pack with 1,000 dancers ready to party the night away. Three dance floors will be available on the yacht with live salsa/bachata music, top 40 DJ’s spinning the best dance music and belly dance music as well. The event has a dress in all white theme which in my opinion adds a touch of elegance to the affair, especially when most folks show up in really nice white suits or beautiful white dresses.
If you want to catch a glimpse of what this all looks like this video does a good job of giving you a brief preview:

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:
