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, Fenway on the D, Kenmore on the B), plenty of street and lot parking.

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

Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev-Mac Daddy 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.

Hola Salseros!

We'd like to first welcome all the students back to Greater Boston!  And although summer is not officially over (it sure feels like it!), we hope you had a great vacation!

The MIT Salsa Club has been re-gearing itself over the summer for the fall and winter terms.  Consequently, we're pleased to announce that we're all ready for another great season of FREE dance instruction for all MIT students and the general public!

Please take the time to visit our updated web site at http://web.mit.edu/salsaclub/www.

We've also posted this term's class schedule on our "Club Lessons and Workshops" page at http://web.mit.edu/salsaclub/www/events.shtml.

As with the previous term, the Salsa Club will be offering free classes for both beginners and intermediate dancers on Monday and Tuesday evenings of every week. 

Monday Intermediate Lesson and Social Dance (7-8:30)
Like last term, this class will still be challenging.  However, new additions and subtractions have been made to the class format.  First, the class will begin with basic group stretching and a dancing warm-up to music.  Next, the lesson will be divided into smaller segments that focus on specific elements of partner and individual dancing.  And as always, we will be teaching an intricate and challenging partner combination for the latter half of the class.  However, this year we've decided to shorten the length of the combos for the benefit of both students and instructors!   

Tuesday Beginner Lesson and Social Dance (7-8:30)
Our beginner lessons are geared towards instructing both first-time dancers and dancers with a grasp of the basics.  Our instruction team will warm up the class with group stretching and dancing to music followed by mini-workshops on such things as basic spinning technique, maintaining posture and balance, timing, leading and following technique and basic partner combinations.  This class will be broken up into two sections: one section for beginners, another section for advanced beginners. 

Also, our instruction team will change throughout the term, so new faces will bring new lessons and styling throughout the fall lesson schedule!
