This September sees us raising funds for Macmillan Nurses.
This is a very worthy cause that most families have contact with at some time in their lives and speaking from personal experience they provide a fantastic service during very emotional and upsetting times.
We will be selling a range of home made cakes at our Monday night class on the 23rd of September so bring your money if you have a sweet tooth.
It seems that there is always something else going on to compete with when we put on salsa parties these days - Usually it's another salsa party in the Northwest area (that's not really a bad thing as it's good to have a choice sometimes) but this time we have a larger foe - Russell Watson the super (and local-ish) pop-opera singer is in the area tonight blasting out his tunes at
Anyone who knows me or who come to class regularly will know that I would not be relishing the idea of taking our most recent Monday night salsa class on my own. But, deep breaths, I have taken one or two classes in the past. It's just that it's been a bit of a long time and I've got used to Julia Rice taking the reins and leading the classes. Anyone who knows both of us will not be surprised by that information.
Looking back, that was a great weekend that we just had.
Friday saw Carol and Alan from Noches de Salsa hold their monthly party, this time at Tiffanys on the prom and if you like your salsa hot then this was the place to be. It was so hot.. It seemed that a great time was had by all.
For almost as long as I've been doing salsa I've been aware of a venue in Yorkshire called the Engine Shed - it appears to have almost mythical status among those in the know. So after all these years and as we are at a loose end Julia suggests a visit as Yersin Rivas is giving a Cuban class this weekend at this venue.
As some of you know already we are on the lookout for a new venue for our Wednesday evening dance classes as The Pickerings has sadly had to close it's doors. Well, it's not proving to be all that easy to find a suitable room in the Garstang area. None of the pubs seem to have function rooms and the only thing we've found so far is an old church hall that is due to be demolished anytime soon so you can imagine what that is like.
The night was going well, everyone was dancing and apparently having a great time. I was feeling good. The music was going down really well and some people took the time to tell me how much they were enjoying the event. Hooray.
This was Saturday 3rd November - our latest salsa party at Longridge Con Club. What could go wrong?
