Although we host different events at clubs, studios and other venues the one event I personally host is the 1st Thursday Salsa Meetup event at Cafe Sevilla each month. I wanted to share this video created by Lolly Aita that does a great job of capturing some of the key things you’ll see at the Meetup I host:
As an avid salsa dancer who travels from time to time, I know how important it is to find good salsa information about the local dance scene I will be visiting. Since San Diego is a top tourist destination I also know that many of those traveling here will be looking for good salsa information about our local scene as well.
An easy solution for learning about local venues and important information about where you can dance salsa in San Diego is to start here on RitmoBello.com. Specifically you can get a quick overview of the local venues on our Clubs & Venue page on our website. Additionally you can visit the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group calendar to see what events may be going on at the venues you are interested in visiting. The events on the calendar range from nights out at local dance venues to special workshops that are held at local studios here in San Diego.
If you are visiting San Diego and find these resources helpful let us know and send us a message via Twitter @RitmoBello.
The Fifth Anniversary Sabor on the Bay Yacht party is ready to launch this August 31st, 2013 and the celebration will take a Las Vegas theme throughout the night. The 3 hour cruise will feature many of the attractions and amenities we’ve all grown accustomed to enjoying on these cruises including 3 floors of music, fully stocked bars, an outdoor deck with cigar lounge, etc. Additionally this cruise will have roulette and blackjack tables so you can try your luck at winning some money while on the yacht.
If you missed the cruises over the last 5 years check out this video which is sure to get you excited for the upcoming one:
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 event is open to everyone so feel free to come alone or bring any friends. In the past new members of our group have found this particular event a great way to mingle and connect with interested dancers.

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.
