Veteran salsa dancers know that wearing the right shoe is essential for both enjoyment and safety while dancing. This holds true for both men and women. With women though the matter is even more important since many of the lead/follow elements of the dance will depend on the women’s ability to make precise movements without losing balance.
Case in point, it’s hard to execute a turn in flip flops or even non secured slip on shoes. It’s way too easy to slip, fall and be injured in footwear that is not designed to stay on you while you move quickly.
Fortunately, there are many dance shoes on the market for women that are designed for the high flying quick movements of Latin dance. These shoes feature leather or suede bottoms to make turning easy along with buckles or straps to keep the shoes securely on your feet.
E.K. Clothing offers a wide selection of these dance shoes ranging from open toe styles to closed toe styles. They even offer modified boots especially for dancing.
Check out their selection today and avoid a dance floor disaster!
The San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is about a month away and there are some important updates recently released related to the event that you should know about.
The official band of the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is Tarzana, a 10 piece band with music that harks back to the 1950’s and 1960’s era bands. If you haven’t heard their music here is a video showing their talent:
Along with this announcement is an updated list of the many instructors that will be teaching workshops and lessons throughout the whole event. Many well known names including San Diego’s David and Jennifer Stein and Alejandra Quintero will be hosting all sorts of instructions for those eager to learn. You can see the most up to date list here on the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba website.

The next Sabor on the Bay yacht party is already set in motion and tickets are already available for the event. Even though it’s only July, the tickets traditionally sell out well in advance so you are encouraged to secure your tickets now.
If you are new to the Sabor on the Bay events the concept is to have a fun filled 3 hour night of dancing, live music and lounging all on the 1,000 person capacity Inspiration Hornblower Yacht. This event will be unique as there is a Dia de Los Muertos/Halloween theme where you are encouraged to put together your best costume for the night. There will even be a $200 costume contest.
The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group in cooperation with RitmoBello.com will be attending the event and will be hosting a VIP table to serve as a meeting place for those planning on coming.
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:
Tickets always sell out for this event so it would be a good idea to buy your tickets now to avoid being left at the dock.
