Price: $10.00 per person
Where: Santorini Taverna
13000 Technology Dr
Eden Prairie, MN 55344

** Bar/Dance floor area of Santorini Taverna at 13000 Technology Drive in Eden Prairie, MN. 952-546-6722.
Last time we had about 30 people and Santorini management has moved the stage back. So, we had more room to dance during the class.
Also, we had almost equal number of men and women. So, we did a better job of changing partners and dancing with everybody, and it was a better experience for everybody.
Santorini Taverna in Eden Prairie has a live Salsa band called Salsa Del Soul twice a month, and many advanced Salsa dancers show up for these dances. To help us catch up with those advanced dancers, we will do a beginning level Salsa lesson for our group at 6:30.
So, here is the plan.
** Get there by 6:15, check in with Milind, and get settled in.
** Beginning level Salsa/Latin dance lesson from 6:30 to 8:00
** Rest, eat, and drink 8:00 to about 8:30. Santorini has a full bar and excellent Greek/American food.
** At about 8:30 Salsa Del Soul will start playing. We can dance with others in the class and practice what we learned. Better yet, we can dance with the advanced dancers, and polish our dancing style. It is even fun to watch the advanced dancers put on a show for us.
** Depending on your schedule, you can leave anytime after 8:00. But I highly recommend staying for a while and dancing with live music. I will probably leave around 9:30.
As always, we will be rotating partners frequently, during the lesson part, to make sure that
** Nobody is without a partner for long, and
** You get to dance with most everybody of opposite gender in the group.
** It would be nice if couples and partnered people start/end with their partners, but change partners for the rest of the time.
Cost for the class is only $10/person. (Please bring cash; exact change is preferable.)
** People taking the class don't have to pay the $5 cover Santorini charges for the dance.
** I am working with Santorini management to get some bar tabs/gift certificates. Anybody who is in the class will be included in the drawings for these gift certificates.
For those who don't want to be part of the class can come around 8:30 for the dance and pay $5 cover charge directly to Santorini. But you will not be included in the drawings.
Either way, we hope to see you there!
Feel free to pass this information onto your friends/family/co-workers. The more the merrier. :-)
