A Salsa Dancer Travels: Brasils in Old City Philly

Saturday, July 12, 2008

Greetings from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Last night I had the opportunity to visit Philadelphia’s Old City area and it was a great experience.  For those of you in San Diego, California the Old City here in Philly is reminiscent of the Gaslamp Quarter downtown .  I included a video here so you could get a better sense of what I mean.

In terms of Philly salsa dancing, I visited a nice little venue called Brasil’s .  The club, located in the colonial part of the city, has a decent size dance floor on the second level and pretty good drink specials ($3 for a Corona before 11pm).  There were good lessons given by La Luna Dance Studio too (learned a new move called the susie Q).

Philly salsa is danced On1, so it wasn’t too difficult for me to meet some folks and get some good dancing in early on in the evening.  The city is also pretty diverse as I was able to dance with some residents that were originally from Hungary and other exotic locations around the world.  Although there was only a DJ and no live band, the DJ did a good job of mixing salsa with an occasional merengue and bachata.  I could have done without the Regaton though.

Overall, it was an excellent night out on the town here in Philly.  I have some other places to check out tonight but my feeling is I might make my way back to a good thing at Brasil’s again.  I’ll let you know how it pans out.

From Philly,
