San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group Updates

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Well, the 2017 San Diego Salsa Bachata Festival is over now and if you still need to get your salsa dance fix in there is still hope.  The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group, San Diego’s largest group with 3,000 plus members, has a ton of events on the monthly calendar for you to take advantage of today.  For those unfamiliar with the group, the events are posted by most of the top salsa instructors, studios and clubs that help keep our local dance scene alive.

Looking at the monthly calendar you’ll be able to find anything ranging from meeting with other dancers at local clubs to dance auditions if you feel inspired to try out for a dance team.

Joining the group has always been free and there is really no obligation to joining the group except that you are open to having fun.

Check out the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group today!

End of an Era: Salsa Dancing at La Jolla Marriott Ceases

Monday, April 3, 2017

You read that right.  Effective immediately the La Jolla Marriott will cease to have salsa dancing on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  In a message posted by Rumba Entertainment, the organizer for the salsa nights, they cite lack of support on the part of the hotel to continue the nights.  You can read the entire message here below:

Personally I’m disappointed in the hotel management’s decision to end support of its salsa dancing nights, but it reflects a real challenge that the salsa community faces in San Diego.  That challenge is namely to weigh the support of the local dance community versus making sure they maintain a profitable business. I’m going to miss the La Jolla Marriott salsa nights and great alternative it provided for so many days of the week.

I’m hoping another venue opens up soon to fill this large void left by a much beloved salsa dance venue.

Feel free to leave comments below.

See you all on the dance floor.

The San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meeting Group started back in 2005 as a simple way for like minded salsa dancers to meetup with others wanting to dance.  Since that time the group has grown to include dancers, studios, instructors, venues and a whole host of characters that make up San Diego’s salsa dance scene.

We reached a milestone here in March by breaking the 3000 member count and the group is still going strong with tons of events posted on the monthly calendar.  If you haven’t checked out the San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meetup lately check it out today.  The group is free to join and it’s a great way to learn about our local dance scene.

Sabor on the Bay 2017 All White Yacht Party Sets Sail May 27th

Sunday, February 5, 2017

The 2017 All White Yacht Party is a few months away but it is not too early to secure your tickets now.  This year Sabor on the Bay decided to host only one event here in San Diego and the May 27th yacht party represents your only opportunity to enjoy the now famous 3 hour cruise.

Included in the cruise is lots of Latin dancing including a special emphasis on salsa dancing in the main deck area.  The live band for the event, Lily Hernandez y su Orquesta, will be performing for the 1st time in San Diego and should be a great act to catch live. If salsa is not your thing, there are additional floors with top 40 music and Afro Cuban dancing to fit your mood.

To get a glimpse of what is in store for you if you attend, this promo video highlighting the 2016 All White party does a great job of catching the spirit:

The cruise will be Cuban themed and the event organizers encourage everyone attending to dress in all white.

If you plan on going don’t forget to RSVP at the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup group (click here) as you’ll be eligible to join us at our VIP table hosted by RitmoBello.com and the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.

See you all at the Sabor on the Bay All White Boat party May 27th!
