Although the 10th Annual San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is months away I want to let you know about an important change to the event. In past years the event was held in late August/early September but this year the festival will take place on November 25-27th (which coincidentally is Thanksgiving weekend).
The new date for the event may make it easier for folks to attend since it falls during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and will also help motivate people from out of town (i.e. coming from snow states) to enjoy the nice San Diego weather.
Keep your eyes posted on RitmoBello.com for more articles as the event gets closer.
I want to let you know about a great upcoming event on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo!) for people new to dancing in San Diego and regulars alike. I host a Meetup.com night on the 1st Thursday of each month at Cafe Sevilla where the idea is to get to know the people you are dancing with early in the night without the loud music and commotion. The meet and greet runs from the time the club opens through the free dance lesson that is provided and typically begins around 8pm.
Orquesta Guayacan, one of Colombia’s best known upbeat Salsa bands, is coming to San Diego in April! The band known for scores of hit salsa songs will be performing this April 8th at the Blue Agave Nightclub. The great thing about viewing them at Blue Agave is that you’ll be able to get really close to the band in an intimate environment while still being able to dance.
If you are new to Orquesta Guayacan here is a short video clip from one of their past concerts:
The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup along with RitmoBello.com will be on hand to celebrate this great talent from Colombia. You can find out more information and buy tickets here at the meetup event page.
The 8th Annual All White Boat Party is set for Saturday May 28th, 2016 and with it comes a great night of fun.
The Inspiration Yacht (the largest of the vessels provided by Hornblower Cruises) will host 1,000 party goers ready to party the night away. Three dance floors will be available on the yacht with live salsa/bachata music on the main floor, top 40 DJ’s spinning the best dance music and Rock en Español as well. The event has a dress in all white theme which in my opinion adds a touch of elegance to the night. It is the perfect occasion to wear that really nice white suit or beautiful white dresses.
This video from the 2014 All White Party is a great preview of what you can expect to see:
Tickets always sell out for this event so it would be a good idea to buy your tickets now to avoid being left at the dock.
The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group along with RitmoBello.com will be hosting a VIP table and we encourage you to visit us at the event. All are welcome.
Blue Agave Nightclub has a great record of bringing top salsa talent to perform in San Diego and we are lucky once again thanks to their efforts. Gilberto Santa Rosa will be performing live at Blue Agave Nightclub February 19, 2016.
For those of you unfamiliar with Blue Agave Nightclub, the venue gives you a great opportunity to get up close with performers as the dance floor goes right up to the stage. This makes for a perfect combination of quality live salsa music and ample room to dance.
If you are like most people you have certain New Year’s resolutions that you’ve set for yourself. If dancing is not one of them it’s still early enough in the year to give it a go.
For those new to salsa dancing in San Diego a great place to start is the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group. Started way back in 2005, the group is made up of many people in the salsa community from established instructors to those just stepping onto the dance floor for the first time. With 2,400+ members the group is one of largest meetup groups in Southern California and for sure the biggest when it comes to dancing salsa.
