Anyway, we're all happy that everyone has taken the place as much as they have. It's definitely a FUN NIGHT!

We are now offering two hours of lessons with MetaMovements at Club Caribe Plus, Boston's Hot Salsa Spot will be staying open generally until 1:30am if the crowd so demands.

- Cover charge is $10 ($8 with valid student ID)
- each lesson will be $5 additional
- beginner and intermediate levels with be concurrent. You can go back and forth if the level is too hard or easy.
- our 2-for-1 discount still applies to the cover charge (before 9:30 only) and the 9pm beginner lesson. So that means the cover charge would be $5 pp, and either $2.50 pp for the beginner lesson or $5 pp for the other lessons. See the website to RSVP for the discount.
