Hot Salsa Magic w/Mike Andino
Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the Suzanne Patterson Center
Beginner/Intermediate Bachata • 7:30 pm
  with Michael Andino
Mike will start tonights lesson with a 45 minute Beginner/Intermediate Bachata lesson. The smooth, sexy style of this popular Latin dance is quite a change from the much faster pace of Salsa but it is none the less waaaaaaaaay cool. In addition, it is not difficult and easier to learn than some other Latin dances due to the said pace of the steps. And the music behind Bachata is  simply a pleasure to listen to and it draws you to the dance floor. So, here is your chance.
    
Intermediate Salsa - 45 minutes • 8:15 pm
  with Michael Andino
Mike will then move the latter part of tonights hour and a half of instruction to a 45 minute intermediate Salsa lesson. But you beginners have nothing to fear because Mike will first warm the throngs up with a brief beginner "reminder" lesson. And since Mike is such the consummate pro, you will be able to catch on that quickly. Heres another chance.
Featuring: Carlos Hendricks
  7:30 pm - 12:00 pm
Here is where the party is taken over by Master Latin DJ, Carlos Hendricks with his extensive Latin playlist dominated with hot, pure native, Puerto Rican Salsa.
