San Diego is a great city that attracts many visitors and folks that have decided to call Americas Finest City home. One question I receive from new arrivals to San Diego is what is the best way to meet others in the San Diego salsa and Latin dance scene.
The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group is a free group to join that connects you to the various clubs, studios and dance teams that San Diego has to offer. Each event is unique and some offer their own special rewards like the dance group auditions where YOU become the salsa star. Best of all you can connect with many other new dancers and create your own special connections with them.

Our friends at Blue Agave Nightclub are bringing back Gilberto Santa Rosa live to San Diego on August 24th. The Puerto Rican Salsa Sonero is no stranger to San Diego and has been here multiple times to the delight of salsa dancers. Gilberto Santa Rosa is celebrated the world over as one of the best contemporary salsa performers alive today. If you are not familiar with his music check out the video from one of the last few times he visited America’s Finest City:
Time to visit your local US post office if you are a Latin music lover!

Like most people in the world, I’ve been following the death and aftermath of Michael Jackson’s passing last week. It’s been interesting to see all the tributes and retrospects regarding his life.
A reader sent me a link to this YouTube video and I thought it would serve as a great tribute to his life’s work. Although there is not much salsa dancing in the video at all, the beat of the song is set to a salsa rhythm. I hope you enjoy it…
Over the last few months Cafe Sevilla has made a real effort to accomodate new and veteran salsa dancers alike. In particular, the club has hosted its 1st Wednesday of the Month with Meetup.com nights regularly and given all levels of dancers a forum to meet face to face with other dancers BEFORE the dancing begins.
This upcoming June 3rd’s event will have a special twist as the club is asking everyone to come for a DRESS IN RED PARTY.
If you have a red dress, red shirt, red skirts, red shoes, etc. this is the night to wear them!
As always, The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group will have a special VIP area set up from 9pm to 10pm before the band begins playing and the dancing commences. This event is simply a great way to meet other dancers, chat a little, and make connections before everyone goes off to the dance floor.
San Diego has a new dance venue for salsa dancers!
