It’s hard to believe but the time for the San Diego Salsa Bachata Festival is here once again! Celebrating 7 years of existence, the local festival draws the world’s best salsa, bachata, merengue and Latin dancers to compete, instruct and inspire.
As we’ve seen in past years, the San Diego Salsa Bachata Festival is broken up over several days beginning with a Thursday night pre-party celebration winding down to social dancing on Sunday night. 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.
Whatever you choose to do on Labor Day Weekend, here in San Diego the Salsa and Latin dance choices are limitless!
See you all during the fun events of Labor Day Weekend 2013!
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!

Time to visit your local US post office if you are a Latin music lover!

San Diego’s Latin dance scene has been expanding over the years and nothing is a better indicator of this growth than the 1st Annual World Latin Dance Cup. The event, hosted by Albert Torres Productions, is a great tribute to not just different styles of salsa dance (from Cuban style to Colombian style) but also other Latin dances like cumbia and bachata. Teams from all over the world will converge on San Diego to compete in dance categories ranging from amateur to pro teams. Those groups will vie for more than $50,000 worth of cash prizes and the chance to be dubbed #1 in their respective dance categories. It should be very exciting to watch, if not perform in the event for sure.
