San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival Offering Kizomba Only Passes

Monday, July 6, 2015

The San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is fast approaching and with it RitmoBello.com will be sending out updates and important information to help you plan for it.

A new thing that is being offered this year are dance specific dance passes where you can take advantage of your own workshops, dancing and mingling with like minded individuals.  Kizomba dancers, for example, will have their own foyer, workshop room and social dancing area until 4am in the morning for the event on most nights.  The unique passes will allow you to really hone in on a particular dance that you want to focus on and immerse yourself in that particular genre of music.  You can learn more about these passes on the official San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival Website (click here).

Keep your eyes on RitmoBello.com in the next few months with important updates on the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival.

Who Organizes Events on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group?

Thursday, April 9, 2015

I often get questions about the calendar and events on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.  Many people think I post every event that appears there but in reality the calendar is a huge group effort.

The group is made of 22 other organizers that include well known people here in San Diego such as David Stein of Majesty in Motion, Susie Nguyen Grafte from Ooh La La Dance company, Walter Meneses from Dancing After School, Gaby from Alma Latina and Serena Cuevas.  The  local Tango dance community is represented as well with organizer like Krista Ann and Tino.  The events found on the calendar are truly crowd sourced content from those who know what is going on here in San Diego regarding dance.

The great thing about the group is that we are open to others from the community who want to help fill the calendar with fun events and socials any day of the week.  If you are interested in becoming an event organizer send me a message.

With so much talent here in San Diego posting great events on the calendar you are sure to find one that best fits your schedule and interests.

See you all on the dance floor!

John ;-)

Transforming non Salsa Shoes into Salsa shoes Using Suede Heel Wraps

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

http://www.ritmobello.com

Let’s say you have a whole collection of shoes that you know would work great for your dancing but the rough heel tip simply won’t work on the hard dance floor.  The easy solution is to apply suede heel wraps to the back tip and transform that shoe collection into your salsa dance toolbox of fashion. Suede heel wraps are a simple fix that are easy and quick to apply to any shoe with a heel.  The wrap simply goes around the tip and with a little work you can trim the excess pieces that show to keep the suede only on the non-visible bottom part of the heel.  The result of this application is a shoe that allows for better turns, spins and maneuverability making for an overall better dance experience.

The suede heel wrap can be found at EK Clothing with a keyword search of “suede”.  Also don’t forget the front part of the shoe with the toebox area that can benefit from application of the same type of material.   If you have any other  suggestions for adapting heels to dancing feel free to leave a comment.

Thanks and see you all on the dance floor.

John ;-)
