Well...  just back from a long weekend of dancing and boozing it up in DC.  Man, those people wore me out!  As always, a good time down there.

NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE!  Discount tickets to the Valentine's Weekend Salsa Dance at Knights of Columbus!  Buy your ticket in advance on and save $5.

Also, More info below!



"Hacha Y Machete Dance Stylists, the first group from Boston ever, will be representing Boston in the 2002 LA Salsa Congress.  We've just got the word from Albert Torres!"

Way to go Sammy and company!

The question to you, BostonSalsaLovers, are *you* going to LA?  On about Feb. 10 I am sending a list of people to Albert Torres Productions (ATP) who will be eligible for the SalsaBoston price for the event, which right now is about $100 off the regular price (Hotel and event pass).

That means, by Feb. 15, you will be able to call ATP and get that price.  After Feb. 15th, you're on your own, so don't miss out!  About 10-12 people have rsvp'd in some manner to date, plus the Hacha dancers, so its going to be a good group out there again!

Emailing me fine!  Send email to IWannaGoToLA@salsaboston.com to reserve your discount!

My name is Kumi Okabe and I am organizing a party called "La luna caliente" with my partners. The party will have international food, world beat, and other hot stuff. We will have live salsa music,and maybe salsa lessons. The date will be on Thursday February 14th, the Valentine's date. The idea is to have fun with everybody by dancing, eating, chatting, and mingling. The ticket to the party is $20 per person. The place is at Western Front on Putnum and Western in Cambridge. I am wondering if you could list our party on your Salsa Update. If you need more information, I can give you more information.
Please contact me at kumadelic@hotmail.com or my cell 617-216-7729.

Thank you and I hope you can join us.
