Latin events at Salsa!

Posted on July 30, 2012

Latin dance venue Salsa!, on London’s Charing Cross Road, has organised a variety of Latin-flavoured events this summer. 

On Thursday, August 9 the club plays host to the six-times world salsa champions, Jhon Vasquez and Judy Aguilar, who will perform alongside Michel Castellanos on the drums and Grupo Racies, a Colombian folk lore dance group. 

Sunday, August 12 sees a celebration of all things Cuban at Spirit de Cuba. Gabriel Teixeira Sainhas, an upcoming talent on the Cuban Salsa scene, will be performing dance animation and will be encouraging everyone to get involved. 

At each event Salsa! will provide free dance classes before the headline act.  Classes start at 7pm on August 9 and at 5pm on Sunday, August 12.

Salsa! offers 50 per cent off all drinks from 5 until 8pm every day along with three tapas dishes for just £10. See  http://www.bar-salsa.com/, to find out more about these events or call 0207 379 3277.
