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!

San Diego Salsa Dance Deals Abound in the Lead up to Black Friday and Christmas

Saturday, November 11, 2017

It’s hard to believe that 2017  is almost over but with Veteran’s day past the focus is now inevitably on Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season.  If you are looking for some good deals on anything in the salsa dancing world you are in luck.

From dance shoes to salsa dancing lessons you are sure to find some great deals to make your holiday season more memorable.  For example Majesty in Motion is offering their salsa dance lessons at more then 50% off when you use their Groupon promotion.  Be aware some some restrictions might apply (I believe this Groupon is for new clients of theirs only) but if you are looking to convince your significant other or want to give the gift of lessons this is a great deal.  You can learn more about this particular promotion here.

As Black Friday approaches another great place to keep in mind for your salsa gear is EK Clothing.  You can find specialty salsa shoes for men and women (including dancing boots) along with other items to make sure you are ready for the dance floor.

Of course you will also find special deals for places to go dancing as venues offer special dinner/dance incentives and Christmas/New Year’s party opportunities.  A good place to find out what is happening is the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing meetup group.

Whatever you do make sure you enjoy the holiday season and do some dancing today!
