Subject: #347: Salsa Update moving to Tuesdays

Hola Salseros!

     Subscription info: visit http://salsaboston.com/list

Just a heads up: by popular demand (so far...) "Salsa Update is going to be published on Tuesdays heretofore.  Please submit your listings by Tuesday at 9am to insure inclusion.

See you Wednesday An Tua Nua!  Also, there's a Salsa themed benefit tonight at Revolution Lounge, downtown.  See mailbag for details.

If you're waiting for cruise details and such from us, we got your requests--please hang on.  We're a little behind, sorry!  Should be out this week.


Just 1.5 short months until the cruise season begins!  Tentatively the first cruise will be on June 10th, and then every Sunday through mid-September, plus July 4th as always!

Last year's site is still accurate, though the days of the month are wrong.  That will be updated very soon.

Now is the time to start planning a group outing!  Do you work for a company?  Consider asking them to sponsor a night at the cruises!  Many companies have funds set aside for funding fun things for their employees.  Send me a note and I'll fwd you our group outings letter to give to your HR department.  olaf@salsaboston.com  Private charters are available too.

Also, if you're a promoter or are looking for some a great marketing internship opportunities with the cruises, contact me as well.

Lastly, we are looking for cruise sponsors.  If your firm is looking to market to a diverse latin-oriented community this summer, this year's sixteen-cruise series is the perfect opportunity for some great exposure.


Join us each and every week at An Tua Nua for classes and great dancing.

  >> "How'd They Do That?!" <<

"Did you ever try to learn some steps in a Salsa class but felt like you couldn't quite make them work on the dance floor?  Did you ever see a Rueda move that you couldn't get?  Did you ever watch some amazing cool move that you just couldn't figure out?  Whether you are just getting started with Salsa or you are already an experienced dancer, you can get the answers in this new drop-in class at An Tua Nua every Wednesday.

"Join Anara and other local instructors each week at 7:00 pm to get all your Salsa or Rueda questions answered!  Students will work interactively in small groups, based on their level, questions, and goals."

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.

--What will the donations support

VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) is an international development charity that works through volunteers in developing countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Instead of sending money, food or clothes, the organization engages skilled people from a variety of professions to live and work in the communities during a two-year service commitment.

- examples of what some of around 4,000 VSO volunteers around the world do:
Pediatrician in Uganda
Occupational therapist in Sri Lanka
Science teacher in Guyana
Accountant in Pakistan
Math teacher in Namibia
Biomedical scientist in Ethiopia
Eco-tourism advisor in Vietnam
Social worker in Kazakhstan
Nurse in Kenya
IT trainer in Ethiopia
Pharmacist in Cameroon
Marine biologist in the Philippines

MIT Salsa Club is still looking for a couple more volunteers for this year's social. 

The 2nd Annual MIT Salsa Social is Saturday, May 19 in the
Sala de Puerto Rico room of Stratton Student Center.

MIT Salsa Club is hosting an evening of dancing and performances from local dance companies. 

We're going to need your support.  If you can volunteer at
this year's event, please email Chris at vegas76@yahoo.com.

Like last year, all volunteers will only work between 30 minutes to an hour.  In other words, volunteering to help out will be like taking a short break from the dance floor to help the club.  You'll also get into the event for free!
If you can help the club, please email Chris soon with your name and email address (vegas76@yahoo.com).
