Got your July 4th Fireworks/Salsa Harbor Cruise tix?  $30 advance, $45 at the dock if it isn't sold out.  Last year it was.  Don't wait, tickets are selling...!

** No cruise this Sunday, July 3.

So... last Sunday, we're at the dock getting ready for the cruise and a huge rainshower dumps on us at about 6:45 as it does about this time every year, people crammed into the landing, much drinking ensues.  Then, right on queue, at 7pm it stops and lessons commence, weather couldn't be better.  If you weren't there, you missed an awesome cruise!  The highlight, we had our first marriage proposal at a SalsaBoston event!  and... she said "yes"! Congrat's guys! I was moved!  Okay, the moral of the story, don't stay home watching TV if there's any showers forecast for Sunday, because they are ALWAYS over by the time we leave the dock.  We should know, we've kept track for Five Years!

This Wednesday we'll be at An Tua Nua as usual, DJ ROB IN THE HOUSE! No baseball Wed. nights again until September!  So come dance on our new floor, lessons at 8 (casino rueda) and 9 (salsa), dance until 1am. www.salsaboston.com/antuanua

Also, Thurdays this month we've teamed up with Tomas Soto to bring you a mini-salsa competition.  $100 cash prizes each week, plus $500 for the finals!  Club 180, http://tomassoto.com/deme5_testing/THURSDAYS180.html  Check it out.  Competition starts at about midnight (yeah, it's a late scene...!)  Contact us for details if you want to compete.

What else, Vertigo is a happening spot!  Friday nights.  The salseros are showing up early, "salsa for gringos" lesson at 9:30, and the salsa has been going later and later, especially upstairs.  www.salsaboston.com/vertigo  Pix from various week are up, but the thumbnail software is broke, sorry!  You can still see the full size pictures.

An Tua Nua is a great contemporary Irish bar & grill on Beacon Street just outside of Kenmore Square (only about 3 blocks from Sophia's).  In the back they have a dance club about the same size as the upstairs at Sophia's, with a sizable dance floor that holds about 150 people, a bar, and plenty of lounge seating. 

Close to the green line (St. Mary's on the C train), plenty of street and lot parking.

Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there, it is tasty and modestly priced.

Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev MacDaddy in the front portion of the bar when you walk in, but don't let that scare you... Salsa is in the back room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

My name is Richard Ruiz and I am the Vice President of Harvard University's Ballroom Dance Team.  We are going to be offering Beginner Salsa lessons this summer starting next week.  Classes run for 6 weeks every Wednesday from July 6th to Aug. 10th.  Classes are 8-9pm and will be held in Adams House Dining Hall, 26 Plympton St., Cambridge, MA.  Tickets are $7 per class or $38 for a 6-class pass.  No experience or pre-registration is necessary.  For more information, people can visit www.harvardballroom.org/club.html

Salsa dancing is hot, Hot, HOT! And Cuban Style Salsa (also known as Casino Style Salsa) is the SPICIEST of them all!

The term "despelote" was coined by Elio Revé. To excite the audience and warm up the atmosphere, he would shout "¡Tremendo despelote!" during a drum jam. "Despelote" essentially means "letting it all out".

Learn Cuban (Casino) Style salsa moves in the "son" (closed position) and "guapea" (open position).  Practice techniques for being a "follower" or a "leader" in a relaxed "no pressure" atmosphere.  Become a true salsero as you dance casino and despelote to the new Cuban salsa fusion music: Timba.  Have fun, meet new people, and let it all out!

Classes are held at:

"The Karate Center"
75 Webster Street, Worcester MA
and through the
"Night Life" program of Worcester Public Schools.
