Subject:	393:  ATN Tonight, cruise season approaching

Hola Salseros!

Hi everyone!  See you tonight at An Tua Nua as usual!
  http://salsaboston.com/antuanua or scroll down.

Also, this Friday is a FREE 18+ Salsa Dance/open house hosted by Havana Club 
at the YWCA in Central Square.  As many of you know, Cambridge has been 
hassling the venue owners in the area about licensing issues, including the 
YWCA, and those are thankfully being settled.  Hence, Havana Club is welcoming 
everyone back this week.  Check it out!

The chatter about cruise season is almost deafening here at SalsaBoston HQ, in 
fact I get calls each week wondering if they are starting yet.  Well, they 
are---June 20!  Fridays and Sundays, alternating weeks, this year.  The dates 
are online.  http://salsaboston.com/cruise  Prices are tentatively the same as 
well.  Questions or want to book a group?  Call me at 617-513-9841.  Ask your 
HR department to book a group!  They have budgets for that.

    I am relaunching a program we've had for a while that many don't
    know about.  Salsa Field Trips to An Tua Nua!
    The idea is that your beginner level studio class students
    often don't know where to go dancing or need a little
    hand holding (I know I did, way back when...), so we have 
    this program which offers a discount coupon to the students.
    PLUS, we pay a commission to you, the instructor, to book a
    "graduation field trip" for your beginner classes.  You 
    can participate as often as you like as well, once for
    each session you teach.

    Contact me for details:  olaf@salsaboston.com or 617-513-9841

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 

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.

Havana Club news:

Salsa Fridays 18+ will be an open house this week. I remember that as an 
undergrad things can get tight at the end of the school year. So this friday 
is a free party to thank everyone for being so cool for so long. And, 
obviously, at every party there is a lot of stuff that needs to be done, so if 
you'd like to volunteer to help this Friday, please send me an email. (See

This Havana Saturday Live in Boston we bring you Tentumbao: an awesome ten 
piece band that is the epitome of cool, class and musical virtuosity. I dig 
the band, dig the party, and thank you all for coming out to support what has 
become an incredible salsa dance party. There will be well over 250 people, 
and it will be a great time. If you're into live salsa music (and/or dancing 
to it), come on by and tell/bring your friends!
