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?
Saturday 13th October should have seen the latest mega-salsa event in Blackpool - The Tower Inferno but it seems that quite late in the run up to the event it was sadly cancelled.
Hmm, a bit of a dilemma tonight but it's kind of resolved itself and now no decision needs to be made.
Question was - go to Nick's Salsa Pa'ti do at Grasshoppers with the fab Palenke or Phils Salsa Northwest party at Botany Bay?
I like both.
Palenke are reliably good and Phil's events in Chorley have been quite entertaining of late.
Maybe go to both..
Anyway, stop, no need for me to ponder any more - I have a stinking cold and will be staying in tonight.
Julia is still going though and she will fill me in no doubt.
Thanks to Alan and Carol of Noches de Salsa for a great evening on Friday 14th September.
If you haven't been to one of their parties before, you will find a really friendly, relaxed evening with some great (mostly) Cuban salsa tunes.
I, for one, always have a great time here and would recommend anyone to go along and give it a try.
If you do make it please come and find me (Steve from Sweet Salsa) and ask me for a dance.. That would make me very happy.
Well, that was a long weekend - no dancing at all for Julia and I.
We were busy Friday night doing something else anyway and weren't too bothered at that stage as we were heading up to Lancaster for the LA Salsa party at Cumbria University the following night.
Or so we thought...
What actually happened was that we spent a long 2 HOURS on the M55 stuck in traffic.
That was a great class last night and thanks as usual to everyone who came.
The new beginners course starts next week so anyone looking to learn cuban style salsa is welcome to come along.
A warm welcome is guaranteed.
This is probably a bit late but there are no classes on this Bank Holiday, Moday 27th August 2012.
Apologies for the inconvenience but we are back next week.
This seems to be developing into an annual event.
Last year saw the celebration of Leigh's birthday/Ash's birthday/wedding anniversary take place at the Wierd Fish in St Michaels and as that was such a success it was decided that the event would be held again.
