We have changed the start time of this event to allow more time for people to actually "meet-up" and connect with others as well as have something to eat and drink before the crowds arrive, the tables get pushed back and the class starts.
Here is the new timeline. When you arrive is totally up to you.
5.30pm - Pre-Session Meet-Up
6.00pm - Salsa music goes on
6.30pm - Free fun 30-minute introductory Salsa lesson kicks-off
7.00pm - Salsa party proper starts
9.00pm - Home time
We've booked a long Latino-style table on the dance floor for some casual communial dining before the Session officially kicks-off at 6pm. This is a great opportunity to meet people from the various Meet-Up groups that come along to this popular event along with our regulars. Check out The Cross' food and drink menu in advance so you can spend more time socialising and dancing and less time choosing what you will have.
What people are saying about this Meet-Up
- Really enjoyed the salsa last night, got the heart pumping, everyone was friendly and encouraging, and I think I was better at the end than when I first got there, so bonus!
- I really enjoyed the dancing last night, and also found the people friendly. As I came on my own, it was great to have a couple of guys offer to dance... with me :-) which was really helpful.
More about the Salsa Session & Lesson
My husband and I run and host this monthly event which is held on the second Sunday of the month. It's lots of fun and a great way to meet new people while trying something new.
This is how it works. The session kicks off at 6pm with Rafael and I giving a free fun 30-minute introductory class at 6.30pm. The class is then followed by dancing till 9pm
I will put a MeetUp poster up so it is easy to find us, but as we give the class you can't really miss us.
Please do come up and say hi so I can introduce you to people from this MeetUp group and others and so I know you came!
This free event, which has been running for over six and a half years now, is only made possible due to the on-going support of The Southern Cross. Please remember to support the bar and restaurant in return.
To find out more about our regular classes and what else we have going on please check out the CubanFusion website.
I also highly recommend you join the "CubanFusion Social Club" group on Facebook to receive invites and updates to these Sunday Sessions and related events.
We look forward to seeing you there. Feel free to bring along as many friends as you like, but don't worry if you come along alone as lots of friendly people in the same position.
