Blue Agave Nightclub has a great record of bringing top salsa talent to perform in San Diego and we are lucky once again thanks to their efforts. Gilberto Santa Rosa will be performing live at Blue Agave Nightclub February 19, 2016.
For those of you unfamiliar with Blue Agave Nightclub, the venue gives you a great opportunity to get up close with performers as the dance floor goes right up to the stage. This makes for a perfect combination of quality live salsa music and ample room to dance.
If you are like most people you have certain New Year’s resolutions that you’ve set for yourself. If dancing is not one of them it’s still early enough in the year to give it a go.
For those new to salsa dancing in San Diego a great place to start is the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group. Started way back in 2005, the group is made up of many people in the salsa community from established instructors to those just stepping onto the dance floor for the first time. With 2,400+ members the group is one of largest meetup groups in Southern California and for sure the biggest when it comes to dancing salsa.
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!
