Discovering More about Salsa Dancing on Reddit’s r/Salsa

Saturday, September 8, 2018

Reddit is an interesting community where you can find pretty much anything you might be looking for to research.  For salsa dancers its a great resource for learning about many topics related to the dance including what you should wear when you go salsa dancing to new trends that are being experienced in the dance world.  One sub thread to check out is r/Salsa.

I especially like some of the threads that discuss topics that are highly relevant to improving and enjoying your dancing more.  Some of these I’ve read recently include the value of looking your partner in the eyes while dancing (much better than looking down at the floor!) and sample videos showing different expressions of salsa dancing from cuban style to everything else in between.

It’s worth checking out to obtain more insight into this wonderful dance we call salsa.

See you all on the dance floor!

12th Annual San Diego Salsa Bachata Festival Arrives August 30th

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

It’s hard to believe that 12 years have passed since San Diego’s first Salsa festival.  In these last 12 years the festival has transformed from a small regional event to one that attracts attendees from all over the world.

The 12th Annual San Diego & Bachata Festival continues the tradition established by Albert Torres, Angel and Tulane Rivera and countless other volunteers who have helped make the event what it is today.  If you have never attended a salsa dance festival before you are in for a great weekend of dance shows, competitions, dance workshops and of course live music and dancing.  This video from the 6th San Diego Salsa and Bachata Festival gives you a glimpse of what you can expect to see:

The festival runs from August 30th to September 2nd and the organizers are in the process of updating the schedule of events now.  You can follow along on RitmoBello.com with any updates as they come out and you can check it out for yourself at the official San Diego Salsa & Bachata Festival website.

See you all at the upcoming 12th Annual San Diego Salsa & Bachata Festival!

Visiting or New to San Diego and Want to Dance? Check these Resources First…

Saturday, March 3, 2018

If you are new to San Diego either as a traveler or as a new transplant to the area it pays to do some research on the local dance scene.  This is especially true as new venues pop up and include dance studios where you can both practice and engage in social dancing.

A good place to start is by reviewing our list of clubs and venues on RitmoBello.com.  The list is updated regularly and I rely on the local community to let me know if information needs changing so it should be pretty accurate.  For you locals who see any venues missing or needing updating please don’t hesitate to let me know and I can make those changes quickly.

Another resource that can help is the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.  The group is a 3,000 plus member driven group that regularly updates events each month where you can learn , dance and improve your salsa dancing skills.  Similar to my clubs list I rely on the local dance studios, instructors, club owners and interested dancers to list events each month that are relevant and exciting for the local dance scene to experience.  You can view the calendar here and joining is always free (even for those visiting).

Lastly, check out our local webcam that gives you a quick beach view from San Diego and could serve to get you off the fence about visiting America’s Finest City.

See you all on the dance floor!

10th Annual All White Cruise Launches May 26th

Sunday, January 14, 2018

It’s hard to believe but 10 years have passed since the very first Sabor on the Bay  Cruise.  This year the 10th Anniversary celebration will take place on the Inspiration Yacht as in years past but with a little twist.  This year the salsa music will be played all night long under the stars on the roof and the live band will feature La Sonora Dinamita, a well known cumbia band.

Known as America’s largest Latin boat parties, the Sabor on the Bay cruises blend a great mixture of music, food, scenic views and memorable times all on the water.  The theme will be dress in All White so if you have any white dresses, shoes, hats etc this is a great opportunity to strut  your stuff all in your best white clothing.

A couple of important points to remember include a strict boarding schedule from 8 to 9pm with the yacht leaving no matter what at 9pm sharp.  From there the 3 hour cruise will take you around San Diego bay while you dance the night away.

The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group along with RitmoBello.com will be in attendance and we encourage you all to attend.  Don’t forget that space is limited and tickets always run out so don’t procrastinate and secure your tickets today.

See you all at the 10th Anniversary Dress in All White Sabor on the Bay Yacht Party!
