What we're about

The group is dedicated to anyone that is seriously interested in learning and participating in Salsa Events. We organize boot camp, classes, and practice parties. We also take our Charlotte Salsa Maniacs Caravan to venues all over the Charlotte Scene. We bring the party. And we keep bringing it; again, and again, and again. Afterall, we are Salsa Maniacs. We have dancers of all levels, so beginners we love you, so come in, and join the group too. We only want you here if you can't live without salsa music.

Bringing people together, and bringing them together in a fashion where everyone benefits and there is mutual respect and joy, particularly through our mutual love for the dance, that is who we are. Well I have said more than I intended, but thank you for your love and support of dance.

Implicit in the love of dance is a love for people. So here we are. Let 's take this journey together. Let's get this party started.

A Piece of Havana Here We Come - A hard Habit to Break

A Piece of Havana

Hey Charlotte Salsa Maniacs, Once again, we are heading back to A Piece of Havana on Friday. We are there the first of every month, and back there again on the 3rd of every month. We start the night around 8:00 pm., where we have a table reserved. I have been letting people know about the event via this meetup, by my Facebook network (Salsa De Soul), by word of mouth, and by the many dance groups I am fortunate to be a part of. We have been averaging twenty people, and most people show up, and usually bring someone as well. I let the owner Belkis know how many to expect the thursday before the event, and often, many Charlotte Salsa Maniacs don't rsvp, they just show up. That's cool. But, it is best to RSVP, so we always have enough room at the table. If you show up early for dinner and drinks, great. But here is an incentive. There is a live latin band from 7 - 10, then at 10, I teach the free Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue class. We have a ball in the class. You don't have to know how to do any of the dances, I will teach you. And if you know the dance, it is a good time to take the class just to warm up and smooth your moves. That's my style, Salsa De Soul, which is smooth, cool, romantic, musical, and joyous. So please come and join us. After I get through with the class, DJ Fuse or DJ Expresso comes on with the music and we dance until we drop. The First Friday of the month, we add a taste of Tango. So, you are in for a treat. Rumor has it, that after we introduce people to A Piece of Havana, some return week after week. Baby, A Piece of Havana is Habit forming. But it is a good habit to have. Well, what you waiting for, there is no better time than the present to start a good habit. Looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor, Muhammad Abdullah "the Professor, the Cat in the Hat"
