The 10th Annual San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is coming up fast. The event which traditionally has been during the summer/fall is now set for a new time Thanksgiving weekend. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, the Festival is a great opportunity to be immersed for an entire weekend in the world of Latin dance here in San Diego. Between dance shows, live music, dance seminars and workshops the event will allow those new to Latin dancing a comprehensive introduction to it all.
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.

The Festival will feature top salsa and bachata dance groups from the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia as they perform during each night. During the days you can take advantage of the many workshops that focus on particular dance skills related to salsa and other Latin dances.
An added bonus this year is the 5th Year Sabor on the Bay Yacht party that is set to Launch on August 31st. That event will feature 3 hours of fun aboard a luxury yacht with live salsa bands and a Las Vegas style theme.

The final yacht party for summer 2012 is coming up Labor Day Weekend and the folks at Sabor on the Bay have a great event planned for you. The theme of this yacht party will be Carnaval, that is, Brazilian style partying including samba dancers and music. The party will also have salsa music for those of you who might be attending the San Diego Salsa Festival for the weekend.
In fact, Sabor on the Bay has partnered with the upcoming San Diego Salsa Festival to host the after party at the very same hotel where the festival will be held this year. The official after party will immediately follow the cruise from 12-4am at The Sheraton Hotel (Grand ballroom) across from the airport- less than 1 mile away. The after party will feature 2 rooms of music: Live salsa music with Johnny Polanco & DJ’s playing Bachata & Reggaeton.
Don’t miss out on a fun night of dancing on the yacht and at the official after party!
