San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival: The New Kizomba Craze

Friday, July 18, 2014

The San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is fast approaching at the end of August and one of the main features that sets this year apart from past festivals is the new addition of Kizomba dance into the mix.

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.

Keep checking RitmoBello.com for more updates as we get closer to the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival 2014.

Moonlight Masquerade Salsa & Bachata Yacht Party Launches October 20

Friday, September 21, 2012

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.

RitmoBello.com and The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group will be on hand to enjoy the cruise and we invite you to join as as well.  You can find out more information about the event including how to buy tickets online via the calendar page on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group calendar.

See you all on the Moonlight Masquerade Yacht!

New Salsa Club Noche Latina Onyx Room Grand Opening Party September 18 in the Gaslamp!

Sunday, September 16, 2012

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.

For more information and to RSVP for the Grand Opening party check out the event page on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.

See you all Tuesday at the Grand Opening of Noche Latina Onyx Room!
