What a great evening…about 500 people salsa and bachata dancing at Plaza Flamingo on Friday evening as part of our last outing of the summer semester!

We started off by celebrating the arrival of Bachata singer Alex Bello with a beginner and intermediate Bachata lesson. Sara and Kimberly taught the beginner lesson and by the end of it people didn’t even look like beginners! Evan and I challenged the seasoned dancers with a complicated intermediate Bachata pattern. The lessons had over 200 people in attendance which was a huge number. Everyone was very respectful and tried to keep quiet so that everyone could hear the lessons. The feedback from the lessons was amazing – I think we need to add a little bachata spice more often!

By 11:30 the house was full with people dancing the evening away awaiting the arrival of Alex Bello. He began his performance at close to midnight and in no time at all people filled up the dance floor and began dancing to his live tunes.

It was a great evening – thank you to everyone who came out. We are taking a break for the next few weeks and will resume classes and outings in mid September….have a great summer!
