Happy New Year - Feliz Año Nuevo.. and what better way to get it started.. a bit belatedly.. but dancing Cuban-style!

This is how the night will run:

- 5.30pm Pre-Session Meet-Up

- 6.00pm Salsa music goes on

- 6.30pm Free fun intro dance class

- 9.00pm Party ends!

Pre-Session Meet-Up

This is a great opportunity to catch up, have dinner and meet people from the various Meet-Up groups that come along to this event before the night gets started. 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:

Spanish Practice Session

NB: There will be no Spanish Practice Session this month as Leticia is not available. We look forward to having her back next month.

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.

Meet-Up Location

All going to plan we will be in the area next to the pool table behind the dance floor. There will be an A3 Meet-Up sign on the pillar next to where we are meeting. Ask at the bar if you can't find us.

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

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 seven 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.

Also it can get pretty hot at The Cross so come dressed for Cuba!
