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.

Dia De Los Muertos Yacht Party Sets Sail October 24th

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

The next Sabor on the Bay yacht party is already set in motion and tickets are already available for the event.  Even though it’s only July, the tickets traditionally sell out well in advance so you are encouraged to secure your tickets now.

If you are new to the Sabor on the Bay events the concept is to have a fun filled 3 hour night of dancing, live music and lounging all on the 1,000 person capacity Inspiration Hornblower Yacht.  This event will be unique as there is a Dia de Los Muertos/Halloween theme where you are encouraged to put together your best costume for the night.  There will even be a $200 costume contest.

The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group in cooperation with RitmoBello.com will be attending the event and will be hosting a VIP table to serve as a meeting place for those planning on coming.

You can learn more about the event itself and find links to purchase tickets on a special event page setup on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup calendar (click here).

See you all at the Dia De Los Muertos Boat Party!

Rest in Peace: A Tribute to Johnny Polanco

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Johnny Polanco, a beloved salsa artist well known in Southern California and in the salsa dance world, died June 2nd 2015 from complications stemming from a recent heart attack.

He was a regular performer in San Diego and had some great shows as you can see from one of his past events in San Diego:

I had the opportunity to interview Johnny a few years ago (you can see it here) and I’m still in shock regarding his passing.  He was a great person with a real passion for salsa music.

Please pray for Johnny’s soul and his surviving family as they cope with his loss.

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 ;-)
