Sunday 21st of January - SALSA GAMES WORSKSHOP (vol.1) - Dorking
We've decided to bring you a series of workshops in 2018. What we are aiming for is to teach you some tips and exercises that will help improve your dancing. Get ready for something different, as these might be quite challenging! But certainly will also be lots of fun! We have called them 'games' as the main skill that we would expect from people attending is willingness to do something new and to engage in to have a great time!
The first workshop will run on Sunday 21st January and focused on the footwork, partnerwork and freestyle. We sold out the tickets and we know that some of you were interested to come, so we will inform you once we confirm the date for the next one. THANKS SO MUCH for all the people who came to the 1st Salsa Games Workshop on Sunday!
