I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to go to a great venue to dance salsa with faces you love to see and professional, amazing staff and management who really care about your experience! That is exactly the experience we had Sunday night at Peridot Resto Lounge on Yonge & Bloor. They threw the doors open just for us and in return almost 300 people came out to dance the evening away.
A very short walk from the subway station and with cheap $5 parking across at the Marriott, Peridot is very accessible. There are 2 floors with 3 main sections as well as a patio. We had 300ppl there almost and there was still space for more which was such a pleasant surprise!
There are 3 main rooms so we offered 3 lessons. Velina with Mildred as an assistant did the absolute beginner class, Emely and Sonya did the level 1 class and Evan and I did the intermediate class. Classes were very busy – hopefully everyone learned the combo and were able to practice it that evening to memorize.
Peridot kindly offered us gift certificates to give away and 2 lucky dancers received those. There was also a birthday dance for Tyrone, one of our helpers. All in all a great evening. Photos will be posted this week on our “events” page.
We look forward to visiting Peridot again very soon for our next Sunday outing!
