Hope you are all doing well. It has been a while since the La Marriott has been closed for renovation but we recently received word from Evelio Fuentes at Rumba Entertainment that the club will re-open on June 8th, 2013.
The grand re-opening follows a major renovation to the club including an expansion to the dance floor and an upgraded dancing surface. More details will be following soon but for now the La Jolla Marriott is slated to open its doors again for salsa dancing on Saturday June 8th. Mark your calendars and see you all at the new La Jolla Marriott for some great salsa dancing.
Sabor on the Bay is back with their fun and eventful Latin party cruises for 2013. The first one this year will be held on Memorial Day Weekend and will include the “Dress in All White” theme just like last year’s event. If you are new to these events check out the video from last year and you’ll get a glimpse of what you missed (and can take advantage of this year):
The 3 hour cruise will feature great views of San Diego’s harbor along with 3 distinct levels of entertainment to suit whatever your interests are for the night. With capacity for 1,000 people, the party is great but sells out really quick so don’t procrastinate and secure your tickets today.
If you are new to salsa dancing in general the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group gives you an opportunity to tap into the local community and learn from the best in our local scene. As the main organizer for the group I have the privilege of helping local dance instructors, studios and personalities reach new dancers in the scene who are ready to learn and engage in the salsa dance life. Since taking on this role of organizer I’ve also been able to see first hand the transforming effects that salsa dancing can have on a person’s life.
I encourage you to check out our calendar and attend some of the great events ranging from nights out at local venues, dance workshops and even auditions to dance teams when you are ready to go deeper into San Diego’s dance culture.

The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group and RitmoBello.com are continuing the tradition of 1st Thursdays at Cafe Sevilla this January 3rd, 2013.
The event is open to everyone and we encourage you to bring any friends. This particular event is a great way to mingle and connect with interested dancers that are new to the San Diego area. This is especially new with a new year and many of you that have dance resolutions can make sure to start 2013 off right by attending.
We’ll meet downstairs at 8pm in the Meetup.com area of the club that will be reserved for our group. Look for the Meetup.com signs I will have on the tables close to the DJ booth. Walter Meneses and his wife Jeannette will give a free salsa lesson starting at 8:30pm.
We would like to thank all of you for your support during this last year and wish you all a safe Christmas and New Year. We look forward to 2013 and sharing with you all the best that San Diego has to offer in Salsa and Latin Dancing.
The final 1st Thursdays of the Month with Meetup.com for 2012 is coming up December 6th and this month will have a “Celebrate December” theme. Come out in your holiday Christmas wear and be ready to dance the night away!

In with the new and out with the old, at least temporarily.
With the advent of a new salsa club in La Jolla we’ve learned some more details about the beloved salsa venue at the La Jolla Marriott. That club is closing in order to take on building renovations and should be open again in a few months. In the meantime the new venue at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla will take its place and provide salsa dancing on the same nights that were customarily found at the old venue.
The last day for salsa dancing at the Marriott is this Friday November 16th so come out for one last dance at the La Jolla Marriott Friday.
