Thanks for making our summer Thursday nights in NoHo a ton of fun.
We are closing out our NoHo summer Thursday nights at NoHo Plaza with rhythm and flair, Salsa style. Our finale is going to be a magical night Old Havana style with the scorching Latin sounds of Alejandro Sol’s Orchestra Son Cache. Learn some Salsa moves from Alejandro Sol and dance your cares away with his amazing Cuban band.
No experience necessary, just the desire to dance to a live band.
Enjoy Thursday evenings this summer, outside under the stars at Experience NoHo Plaza. Always FREE. Always FUN.
Thursday, 3 August 7:30 –9 PM
NoHo Plaza Located between 5223 & 5225 Lankershim Blvd. (the green alley!)
What’s your background?
I first caught the Salsa bug back in the year 2000 after going with a group of Colombian friends to a local Salsa club.
I remember being mesmerize watching all the couples having a blast dancing and grooving to the infectious Afro-Cuban sounds we call Salsa! I was hooked. I knew at that moment that I also wanted to be part of that vibrant Salsa dance community.
So I started taking as many Salsa lessons as I could here locally at the several dance studios in the NoHo Arts District.
Within a few months, I became my Salsa instructor's substitute teacher and that's how my career as a Salsa instructor got started.
Besides being a Salsa instructor, I'm also a Salsa musician. In 2006 I formed my Salsa band Orchestra Son Cache.
What will people expect from the NoHo Plaza class?
I am super thrill to have been invited to perform again this year at the NoHo Plaza live music series.
We are going to recreate a magical evening in the Old Havana!
We are going to kick start the evening with a Free Salsa class followed by social Salsa dancing to the scorching Latin sounds of Son Cache.
Definitely, this will be an evening you don't want to miss.
Is there any advice you can give to beginner salsa dancers?
I highly recommend any beginner Salsa dancer to take as many lessons as they can and to also try to learn to connect their body movements to the music! Once you are able to groove to the Salsa beat, the magic happens, you will connect with your dance partner in a deeper level.
Sign up for a group class or a private lesson!
