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!

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.

Brazilian Day San Diego is coming up this Sunday September 12 and will once again take place in Pacific Beach from 12pm to 7pm.
For those of you unfamiliar with the event, it’s the largest fundraiser for Capoeira Institute, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides outreach programs for underprivileged children and teens. Their focus is to educate the community regarding Brazilian culture and Fine Arts, such as capoeira, samba, Afro-Brazilian dance and percussion.
The day will feature a parade, dance shows and an array of traditional cuisine including Brazilian barbecue, feijoada and pastel. The event is kid friendly too as there will be a fun children’s area with carnival rides, inflatable jumps, ballon artists, face painters and other entertainers.
A dance team from UC San Diego will compete on “Dancing with the Stars” Tuesday night against dancers from Purdue University. The episode airs Tuesday, May 11, 2010. The teams will dance the samba, with the winner to perform on the show’s season finale May 25, according to UCSD. The video above gives a nice example of what you can expect from our San Diego team.
“This will be an incredible experience for the team to perform live in front of a national audience,” said Brodie Kester, UCSD Dancesport team captain. “It will be a once-in-a-lifetime performance.”
In the San Diego area, “Dancing with the Stars” will air at 8 p.m. Tuesday on ABC affiliate KGTV Channel 10. Ritmo Bello wishes them good luck in their competition!
