UPDATE! Sept Salsa Spirit Social (Herencia Africana) @ Uptown Dance

Just confirmed!

Salsa Spirit is proud to announce that the talented Leonilee Vargas of Houston, TX will be performing and teaching at the Herencia Africana social this Saturday!

Leonilee is originally from Puerto Rico, where she won the Puerto Rico Salsa nationals in 2003 with partner Henito Acosta. She also has appeared in a number of TV shows and was a dancer in the movie Havana Nights.

In addition to her accolades as a salsa dancer, Leonilee is well-versed in bomba and Afro-Cuban dance and will be sharing her talent, experience and knowledge with us this Saturday, first in a special 1-hour Intro to Afro-Cuban workshop from 9 to 10, then later in the evening with a performance of her newest routine. This is not to be missed!

Here is a clip of Leonilee performing recently in Houston. Enjoy and see you this Saturday!
