It’s hard to believe it has been 6 years since the inception of the Sabor on the Bay Yacht Parties, but it’s not hard to understand the events’ popularity to this day. The All White Boat Party is a fun mix of live salsa/bachata music, the best in top 40 music and Spanish Flamenco music all rolled up into one event. The 3 hour cruise is a great harbor excursion with the right crowd indeed!
The 1,000 capacity Yacht (pictured below) offers great amenities during the cruise including 5 fully stocked bars and a special cigar lounge area to take advantage of during the event. Don’t forget to dress in all white as the theme for the party is dress in all white!
If you have never been on a Sabor on the Bay cruise this video will give you a short glimpse of what you can expect:
Tickets are now on sale and you are encouraged to secure your tickets well in advance (the event has traditionally sold out as early as April). Don’t be left at the dock and secure your tickets today!
San Diego salsa dancers will once again be able to dance to authentic Colombia salsa music direct from Medellin Colombia. Slated for performance at Blue Agave Nightclub in late March, the group is sure to please with great well known hits including this song from their last time here in San Diego:
Although the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival 2014 is months away, it’s not too early to secure your ticket and lodging at bargain prices. The tickets for the festival are only $119 right now and rooms are as low as $139 a night.
If you’ve never been to the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival this is the perfect year to take part in all the festivities. From expertly led workshops to great night performances and social dancing, the San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival is the best opportunity for a crash course in salsa,bachata, now Kizomba dancing.
Jerry Rivera is coming back to San Diego thanks to our friends over at Blue Agave Nightclub. The salsa sonero from Puerto Rico is known worldwide for many great salsa hits including “Que Hay de Malo” and “Amores como el Nuestro”.
To see a quick preview of the quality of music you will hear check out this video from his last time here in San Diego:
With 2014 now upon us I know many of you out there have personal goals of starting and improving your salsa dance this new year. If you find yourself in the beginning stages of your salsa adventure here are some quick tips to make sure your salsa dancing in 2014 goes great:
1. Get the Right Salsa Dance Gear
If you are new to salsa dancing you may not be aware of the myriad of options for shoes and other clothing that is available to enjoy. From high inch heels for the ladies of every type to suave two tone shoes for the guys, there are lots of styles to choose from. It’s normal in the salsa scene to be “dressed up” in a nice dress for the ladies or a suit for the gentleman, so experiment until you find your own fit. One place to start in your search for salsa dance shoes, dresses, shirts etc is EK Clothing. EK Clothing specializes in clothing constructed with dancers in mind with everything from the fabric and cut optimized for the dancer. (They carry men’s clothing and shoes as well.)
2. Find the Right Salsa Dance Venues and Events in San Diego
There are lots of options for dancing salsa in San diego and my humble opinion is to try them all! Honestly the extent of salsa venues, studios, and special events that take place in San Diego in any given week are enough to keep your whole week busy. A good place to start for finding out information about the different venues in San Diego is our very own list we’ve compiled that is always up to date (if you see something that needs an update please let us know and we’ll make the necessary changes). Additionally you can find out about specific salsa events offered by individual dance studios on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group calendar. There you can not only find the right events but you’ll be connected to a vast array of salsa personalities that make up our great dance scene.
3. Go for broke and have fun
If you are not having fun while salsa dancing something is terribly wrong. Don’t get too caught up in the technicalities of the dance, whether you dance one style over another, etc. The best that salsa dancing has to offer comes from the deep wellspring of joy that comes from simply going out and enjoying the gifts God has given you to dance. Take advantage and enjoy the dance.
Although we host different events at clubs, studios and other venues the one event I personally host is the 1st Thursday Salsa Meetup event at Cafe Sevilla each month. I wanted to share this video created by Lolly Aita that does a great job of capturing some of the key things you’ll see at the Meetup I host:
