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.
<p>Tomorrow Steve and I will be out and about in the Longridge area playing postie with flyers for our new 6 weeks beginners course starting on Monday 3rd September at Longridge Con Club and Wednesday 5th Sept at The Pickerings. </p>
<p>And on Saturday we will be part of the Preston Guild Parade through Preston town centre all strapped up with speakers and dancing in the streets!!! Wahey!! So expecting lots of cheering support along the way please ;-D</p>
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.
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.
Saturday evening saw us at the Salsanorthwest do on the top floor of the converted Victorian mill at the side of the M61 at Chorley. It's an odd layout but well worth the effort in getting there as the room is delightful.
There was a good turnout - attracted by the promised Bachata lesson by V J from i Salsa. I can certainly vouch that this was an excellent class as Uncle Phil roped me in when he saw that I was there - thanks Phil, I certainly learned a lot.
The Bachata demonstration by V J and his partner was excellent.
