Announcing a new Meetup for Portland Salser@s!

What: "Back to the Basics" MERENGUE Intensive Class w/ George Caceres of Sabor Latino

Hello Portland Salseros Meetup Members!
Beginning in September I would like to invite you all to the BRAND NEW Back to the Basics Latin Dancing Intensive Classes that I will be hosting at Lenora's Ballroom Studio on Saturdays.

I have put together 6 different classes that will be rotating throughout the months to help you learn all the favorite Latin dances today including, Salsa, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Bachata, Merengue & Cuban Salsa (Rueda de Casino). This program has been structured to provide the key fundamentals to make you feel comfortable on the dance floor no matter what style of music is playing.

There are several great reasons why you should take advantage of these 2 hour intensive classes.
Reason #1: Don't have the opportunity to take classes during the week.
Reason #2: Can not commit to 4 weeks of lessons.
Reason #3: Some of these classes are not offered on an on-going basis.
Reason #4: Didn't realize there was more to Latin dancing than Salsa.
Reason #5: Now you won't feel awkward when something besides Salsa is played at one of the dance venues.
Reason #6: After taking the intensive class you may be able to move right into one of our higher level of weekly group classes.

WHAT: Back to the Basics - MERENGUE Intensive

WHEN: Saturday, September 19, 2009
