I was talking with Rodrigo of Charlotte Salsa Dance, and he told me about a couple who booked their ticket to come to the Charlotte Salsa Invitational. I hear you thinking: "Okay Muhammad, so what's the big deal... a couple booked a ticket?" Yeah, but they are flying in from Japan. They are filing in just for the Charlotte Salsa Invitational on May 1st because they love the World Salsa Champions .. Cristian Oviedo & Liz Lira; and they love the Cobo Brothers too. Now if they can come from Japan, what is our problem?
Over 250 people have rsvp on Facebook or Meetup that they will come; but they have not yet paid. So, I am encouraging all the Charlotte Salsa Maniacs to not only attend, but to pay your money. You can do so by contacting www.charlottesalsadance.com or calling Wendy/Rodrigo at[masked] 8112.
Keep in mind, that this is more than just a concert and party, you will have an opportunity to take lessons with World class dancers Cristian Oviedo, Liz Lira, and the Cobo Brothers.
If we support events like this, we will make it possible for more and more events to be given here in the Charlotte region.
The group is dedicated to anyone that is seriously interested in learning and participating in Salsa Events. We organize boot camp, classes, and practice parties. We also take our Charlotte Salsa Maniacs Caravan to venues all over the Charlotte Scene. We bring the party. And we keep bringing it; again, and again, and again. Afterall, we are Salsa Maniacs. We have dancers of all levels, so beginners we love you, so come in, and join the group too. We only want you here if you can't live without salsa music.
Bringing people together, and bringing them together in a fashion where everyone benefits and there is mutual respect and joy, particularly through our mutual love for the dance, that is who we are. Well I have said more than I intended, but thank you for your love and support of dance.
Implicit in the love of dance is a love for people. So here we are. Let 's take this journey together. Let's get this party started.
