We get together on a regular basis to go social dancing as a group.

This group was created for anyone interested in meeting other Merengue, Salsa, Cha-cha-cha, Bachata dancers of all levels and connect with other hand percussionists / drummers, latin jazz lovers & Tropical Music Aficionados. Especially those living in the South Bay (Silicon Valley). Learn to salsa, play drums, mingle, dance, listen to music, and make new friends. You don't have to be extremely experienced to be a member, all levels of dancing / playing are welcome. Also, we will keep you updated with other events, socials, Live music, drum circles, percussion sessions or festivals around the bay. All members are free to post info for events, private parties, celebrations or anything related to tropical music & dancing.

The goal is to enjoy as a social activity in a friendly, supportive, social, non-competitive environment. This group is geared for beginners and people who don't take dancing (or themselves) too seriously.

Making mistakes and not dancing perfectly on the beat is okay.   Being a beginner is okay.  We are not snobs.  We want to make going to dance clubs an enjoyable, friendly, social, and personal experience -- not a dance off or a showcase for one's greatness or an exercise in competitive social gamesmanship.

Our purpose is socialize, make friends, improve our dance skills,  create a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere, build community, and have fun!

We only have 4 requirements.

1. You MUST RSVP whether you will attend the event or not.

2. "Flakers" and No-Shows will be banned.

3. Follow and read the event details. Simple

4. You will make an attempt to attend within 3-4 events or you will be removed from the group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
