Get Fired Up Latin Style with The New Mambo Kings!

Monday, July 6, 2009

If you are a fan of the “Dancing with the Stars” TV show you are in for a treat.  Here in San Diego at the historic Starlight Theatre in Balboa Park there will be a limited engagement showing of “The New Mambo Kings.”

“The New Mambo Kings” is an exciting musical revue that blends Latin American culture through the art of dance, voice, and music.  The show will feature lots of different Latin music styles including Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Cha-Cha-Cha, Samba, Tango, Rumba, Paso Doble and Boleros.  It will also have flashy dance numbers and a good amount of singing both in English and in Spanish.

Starlight Theatre’s new Guest Artistic Director, Carlos Mendoza, along with his brother Mauricio Mendoza hope to reach out to everyone from all walks of life with their show.  The brothers have a long history in the performing arts, appearing in popular movies and shows like “Blow” starring Johnny Depp (see the Youtube video below).  I think the show will be a great way to experience the full range of Latin American music and dances in a way that is energetic and riveting.  If you’ve been one of the people glued to the TV watching “Dancing with the Stars” this will be a great show for you too.

The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group will be attending the July 31st performance and you are invited to attend this show as well.  To find out more information about how to obtain tickets please visit the RSVP page (click here!) on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.  Come out and support a great performing arts revue here in San Diego!

San Diego Celebrate Dance Festival

The 12th annual Celebrate Dance Festival in Balboa Park (San Diego) is this weekend August 22 to 24th.

The event is free to the public and will take advantage of Balboa Parks’ Casa Del Prado Theater (which seats 650 people).  There will be over 55 regional dance groups performing over the three days highlighting a diverse range of dance styles, types, genres, and music.  Many of Ritmo Bello’s friends will be performing at the event including TangoAlma Dance Ensemble , LaDiego Dance Theater , and TANGOCENTRIC.

TANGOCENTRIC presents one of the most novel presentations on Sunday August 24th at 2pm for the festival as the experimental dance company works with tango centered dramatic movements.  The group has been expanding and fresh off their recent auditions they are ready to entertain and educate the community about tango through dramatic story related dance.  I posted a video here of a recent performance they did.

The event will be a great reason to get the whole family together and to watch some great dance performances, all in the beautiful Balboa Park setting.  Come out to this FREE event and support dance in San Diego!

You can view the whole schedule for the weekend here or find all the information at the Celebrate Dance Festival website.

See you at Balboa Park this weekend!
