What we're about

This group was started by Tenia Raeni to promote salsa in the South Bay and West Side of Los Angeles and is currently moderated by Ethan Ducre. Please join us at our local events! (COVID PERMITTING) I'd love to introduce you to other great salsa peeps, so please come say hello and let me know you're from the MeetUp group!

Thank you for joining! I've watched so many salsa students and salsa lovers become a part of this great dance community and it's their new home! I hope you'll love it, too. [:)]
One great thing about the salsa community is that you don't need to bring a partner to get started! Los Angeles has a wonderful salsa scene, with so many great venues, DJs, and live bands.
