Saturday Salsa at Monsoon in Santa Monica

Monsoon is one the best known salsa places in Los Angeles with lots of great dancers and the best live Salsa bands. This is a beautiful, Asian themed restaurant; you may want to consider having dinner beforehand!

I must warn you, the place gets hot and growded. DRESS LIGHT! They serve free water which helps a lot with the heat. Also, there are people of mixed ages, but this venue is a bit on the young (late 20s to 40s) /clubby side. (Not quite as community-like as Autry, Stevens or Hacienda). Later at night it gets pretty dressy in this place, so if you feel like dressing up this is the place, but casual works well, too. Leave purses etc. behind, if possible.

When you get there, head upstrairs and look for GLOWBANDS. We'll meet at 10pm around the time classes end. (if you are taking a class, try to reserve us one table, please, there are only a few of them!!) Open dancing starts at 10pm and live music starts a little later.

To get on the VIP list for $5 cover charge (instead of $10) email your full name before 4pm on the 13th to [masked]. List is good till 11pm and does not include classes.  Parking is possible on the streets if you walk a few blocks and also available at parking garages on 2nd and 4th streets. ( I think $5) 

The classes are: beginner: 7.30pm to 8.30pm and intermediate: 8.30pm to 9.30pm. I highly recommend these for members not at advanced levels yet. Classes are $10 and include the cover.

Please don't hesitate to come alone. We are all very friendly. Just find me and I'll introduce you to people.

PLEASE HONOR YOUR RSVPS, WE DO HAVE A NO-REPEAT-FLAKING POLICY!

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL!

    Hello... How do we get started to join the beginners class at 7:30pm? How much is the fee and where do we go, whom do we look for?
    Thanks for your help!

      Ruby, it is really easy. Just show up. The class is included in the entry fee. You won't need a partner; partners rotate even if you came with someone. Go upstairs and you'll find the class. The class is not part of our Meetup; I just post the info for those interested.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
