Central Jersey Dance Society's Salsa Sensation

Suzanne Patterson Center

Salsa Sensation with instructor Mike Andino and DJ Carlos Hendricks.

The dance is from 7:00 pm to 11:30 pm and comes with 90 minute lessons from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm by, Mike Andino, out of Estilo Studio in Philadelphia. The lessons always cover a form of Latin dances: mainly Salsa of all levels, also the ever cool, suave Bachata, Cha Cha, and Merengue.

The all Latin music is supplied by resident DJ, Carlos Hendricks.

Both of the aforementioned professionals have been under contract with CJDS for going on 10+ years. So they must be doing things the right way. Our over 100+ regular dancers have come to know and love these two Pros.

The well served venue used has forever been the Susan Patterson Center located at 45 Stockton Street/1 Monument Drive (for GPS) in Princeton, NJ 08540. Your feet will thank you after a night of dancing on its spacious wood floor!

The cost is an all-inclusive $15.00 and includes an incredible 3 hours of open dancing (8:30 pm - 11:30 pm) after the 90 minute lessons.

What is offered here, ladies and gentlemen is an unbeatable value for an entertainment dollar. And no partner is needed. Mr Andino changes partners very often during his lesson which serves beginners well since they experience dancing with many people.

So come join us and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.
