Azul 17 is a fun venue, with a very friendly group of dancers.
Vanessa teaches there every week from 8 to 10 pm. She enriches the program by offering Cuban Salsa lessons on the 4th Thursday of each month, taught by Barb Bernstein (www.DanceInTime.com).
The open dancing has a little of everything--from Bachata, Merengue and Line Dancing to Rueda...
Note the schedule:
Intermediate Salsa Lesson - 8PM (Come at 7:45 pm to sign in.)
Beginner Salsa Lesson - 9 PM
Dancing - Until 1AM. Lessons are only $5 each.
Barb Bernstein and Martina Miller will be your hosts. If you are relatively new to the scene or there is anything they can do to make the night more fun, just let them know. It's a cozy place; everyone gets to meet and greet at Azul!
If you have questions beforehand, feel free to contact Barb: BarbBtalks at aol dot com or call[masked]-6043.
Azul 17 features Blue Agave tequilas and hand-crafted margaritas served at their beautiful bar, as well as very original guacamole recipes--with options of things added to (such as crab, etc). Many dancers get a bit to eat when they go to Azul because the food is great.
The address is: 9400 Snowden River Parkway; Columbia, MD. It's in the Columbia Market Place, a small strip of retail and restaurants including Mattress Warehouse and TCBY.
