Ever wanted to learn those slick Salsa moves on the dance floor? Want to do something fun afterwork and get a little exercise in at the same time? Well here's a great opportunity to do so - for FREE. Join us for Junior Belone's Salsa Class at the renowned Harlem Children's Zone.
Junior Belone and his team (pictured above) are great, patient instructors who hold a fun 2-hour class for all levels of Salsa dancers - those that are trying a formal lesson for the first time ever (beginners), to intermediates that already are solid "on 2" dancers and are looking to improve turns & spins, to advanced dancers learning extended Salsa moves. Junior has been teaching the class at Harlem Children's Zone since 2009.
To participate in the free salsa class, let the check-in desk know that you're with the HarlemGo Meetup Group for the salsa class. They'll hand you a registration form to fill out. You'll only need to fill out the form this one time, which will allow you to continue to sign up for the class on your own, or with our Meetup group, for up to one year there after!
The class officially starts at 7:00pm, but we'll meetup at 6:30pm to allow time to register. Feel free to bring along a friend or two, and the class ends at 9pm.
