UPDATE: San Diego’s Ooh La La Dance Company WINS 2010 RAW Performing Artists of the Year Award

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

RitmoBello.com congratulates San Diego’s own Ooh La La Dance Company for winning the 2010 RAW Performing Artists of the Year Award.  I recently wrote about their coveted nomination for the award and now the talented group directed by Salsa Susie will be able to enjoy a number of benefits as a result of the award.  Some of those benefits include artist support for the group in the form of money grants and complimentary photo shoots.

Ooh La La is not resting on their laurels, though, and will start 2011 strong by hosting a special “Day of Dance & Healing” that will highlight dancing along with free complimentary massages.  Ritmo Bello and the San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meetup Group will be there to support Salsa Susie and we encourage you to attend too.  You can find out more information about it and RSVP for the event here.

See you all at the January 15th event!

Christmas Gift Giving Ideas for the Salsa and Latin Dancers in your Your Life

Monday, December 6, 2010

If you are looking for the perfect gift for the salsa and Latin dancers in your life here are some suggestions that may help.  You can always go with a traditional salsa gift such as giving new salsa shoes or salsa dance clothing to that special someone.  EK Clothing provides a great array of latin dance wear (including options for men!) that are contemporary and affordable.

EK Clothing also offers other options like their new 2011 Latin Calendar which can make for a great gift as well.  The 2 pictures below are taken from their new calendar which will be available soon.  You can find these and other great gifts on the EK Clothing online store (click here).

For the more tech oriented, we recommend the new salsa dance App from our friends over at Addicted2Salsa.com.  Anthony and Julie just released their Android version of their popular salsa iPhone app, Pocket Salsa.  The video below gives a basic overview of how it works and you can download it by scanning the QR code that follows below.

We wish you luck in your gift giving for your salsa and Latin dancer this holiday season.

Merry Christmas!

Two San Diego Salsa Powerhouses Join Forces to Host the San Diego Christmas Salsa Jam

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

What do you get when two of San Diego’s largest salsa dance companies join together for the greater good?  The first ever San Diego Christmas Salsa Jam!

A Time to Dance and Majesty in Motion, two highly respected and premier dance companies in San Diego, are presenting this unique event at the newly remodeled Four Points Sheraton.  The event is unique because it is the first time there will be two different dance companies coming together to do a joint salsa class.  The event will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in going to experience a class with David, Jennifer, Angel and Tulane all together.

Other good reasons to go are the live band that will be performing, dance performances, a Jack & Jill contest where you can compete for some holiday cash and free parking.

The event is sure to sell out since there are options to partake in a 3 course meal or to come dance the night away only.  You can find out more details on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group’s event page that’s been set up (click here).

There are also rumors that a new salsa dance venue will be opening soon with the announcement to be made at the San Diego Christmas Salsa Jam so don’t miss out!

See you all at the 1st ever San Diego Christmas Salsa Jam Friday December 10th!
