Several years ago, a good friend of mine I've known since high school, Normand Rocha, told me that Salsa was a great place to meet people and offered to teach me a little salsa if I wanted to meet more women. After our first class, I was hooked and from then on I was to be a part of the salsa world for seven straight years. Now, that same friend that taught me salsa met his lifelong dream of owning his own salsa studio and turned it into a reality.
I met most of my best friends from Salsa and even made a few girlfriends. Salsa Cuban Casino is a unique form of salsa popular in Miami where dancers dance in a big circle, constantly switching partners, making it very easy to meet lots of people in a short period of time. It can also be danced one on one.
Here is a short video of my friends Normand and Dagmara dancing together at a performance.
Details of The Party:
His studio is called Salsa Fever, located in Miami Beach at Yuca and I will be hosting our next official event there. He normally charges $40 for a salsa lesson, but for us, he is only charging $15 for the lessons, plus he will provide us with a salsa party and social to meet and practice with others after the lesson is over.
He told me that you can pay at the door, just inform the check-in person that you are a part of the "Miami Matchmaker's Group" or "Dan Silverman's Group" and they will give you the discount.
Please RSVP if you plan on going because I'd like to give him an estimate of how many people are going.
I've requested Normand himself to be our instructor for our lesson so we are in for a real treat! It doesn't matter how much you suck at salsa because we will be taking a basic new-to-salsa class together. If you are already great at Salsa Casino, you can join one of the more advanced groups that will be there with us that day.
There is a parking garage just down the street of Lincoln Rd. that is walking distance from the dance studio. It's located on the corner of Convention Center Dr. and 17th Avenue. It's $1 per hour to park. I highly recommend you park there.
Please invite your friends and share this invitation. I hope all of you come because if you are looking to meet a helluva lot of people, get some exercise, and have a good time doing it, then Salsa isn't just the best choice for you, it's the only choice for you!
