Announcing a new Meetup for Denver Salsa Meetup Group!

What: Colorado Salsa Open w/ happy hour at the Irish Snug

When: May 30,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: The Colorado Salsa Open is the yearly state Salsa competition and it full of fun!! It's so much fun that it sells out and is packed. Therefore I wanted to start the meetup at a different place and then venture over to the competition together so we can get seats and have a great time together. Think of it as Dancing with the Stars in person! (but without the celebrities )While this is a competition there will still be open dancing for everyone to enjoy. Full details are listed below but make sure you come to this. It's a lot of fun, a lot of energy and it only comes around once a year!

The Details:

1st Stop: Happy Hour at the Irish Snug
Time: 5:00-6:30pm
The Irish Snug is just down the road from where the competition will be. Stop by and have some food, drink and comraderie. We can discuss the in's and out's of the competition, who is picked to win, the meaning of life, whatever. They have some great Happy Hour deals on food and drink. Edwin, Krisshetta and I will reserve as many seats as possible. We'll be wearing our new Denver Salsa Meetup shirts so you can find us.

We'll leave to go to the competition at 6:30pm.

2nd Stop: Colorado Salsa Open at the Denver Turnverein
Time: 6:30 - 11pm or later
Address& Phone: 1570 Clarkson-(303)[masked] (Right behind the Fillmore Auditorium)
Cost: $15/person
Since this event is so popular and parking isn't great in that area we are going to be there right when the doors open. This way we can park and get seats. If you get there much past 7:30 or 8:00pm you may not get a parking spot or a seat. The night will start with some open dancing followed by the Jack & Jill competition. This is a light hearted competition for anyone that wants to try. Yes, even YOU! Even if you are a beginner, you can give this a shot. After this is the Strictly Salsa competition in which the contestants have qualified from previous rounds to compete at the CSO. After that is the exciting open competition. This is the cool costumes, choreographed routines, tricks,spins and more! Once this concludes there will open dancing until around 1am. You can stay as long as you want.

The schedule is as follows:
6:30pm Doors open (no ticket pre-sales)
8:00pm Jack & Jill Competition
8:45pm Strictly Salsa Finals Competition
9:15pm Colorado Salsa Open Competition
10:30pm Professional Performance

Here is a website to get the full details on the competition:

It's a long night but it's worth it. I hope you can make it to some or all of it!!
See you soon,
Bridget Ellis
