Havana Night Salsa Party, November 9th

Posted by Kendra on November 10, 2013 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

We had our best turn out yet at our Havana Nights Salsa Party this month.  The crowd was a huge, but there was still plenty of room to do all our tricks comfortably.  We played some new music by Mayimbe and Prince Royce that people really loved.  It's such a great thing to be able to share our love for salsa and bachata with our friends.  We can't wait to do it all again next month.  

Discovering New Salsa Music

Finding great salsa music is always my greatest challenge as a dancer, instructor, and as the occasional DJ here in Nashville.  My ears are always craving a fresh new sound to inspire new creativity in me and my fellow salseros. But surprisingly, when I search for new salsa music, I typically find great songs from the 1970's that I never heard before.  The song might be new to me, but I know it's very old to someone else.

Ibiza nightclub has been our regular Thursday night salsa spot for over 8 years now, so the salsa community was crushed to see our Thursday night salsa get cancelled.  Luckily, long time Ibiza instructors Martin and Raven plan on filling our Thursday night void with their very own salsa social at Casa Azafran on Nolensville Pike.

Mad Donna's Salsa Saturday

Mad Donna's was packed last night, making a cold winter day seem more like summer in the upstairs loft of this east Nashville restaurant.  The night started strong with a packed lesson at 9:30pm, and the dancing didn't let up until 2am.  There were a lot of new faces, and out of towners.  I danced with one girl from Canada who was craving some Cuban style salsa dancing, and I was happy to oblige.  Also, I learned a new line dance.  No idea what it was c...
