Summer Salsa Weekender

Want to get your groove back this summer? Head to this weekend of dance workshops, DJs, and live Cuban music

Published on June 7th 2010.


Summer Salsa Weekender

It used to be soul music that set Northern towns alight. Nowadays, another musical force is spreading like wildfire across the sports halls and dance floors. Salsa – the high-tempo, passionate dance of Latin America has found an unlikely second home in towns such as Bolton and Wigan. Dance classes, club nights and weekenders are attracting big numbers and bringing the stars of the scene over from South America and Spain.

It's going to be one of the Salsa gatherings of the summer. If you go along as a novice, you'll leave a convert. If you're a salsa afficionado, you've probably already sorted your ticket.

Strictly Confidential has teamed up with Salsa...feel the heat – the organisers of one of the biggest salsa events in the North, the Summer Salsa Weekender. It takes place in Bolton from Friday 18-Sunday 20 June and it's going to be one of the Salsa gatherings of the summer. If you go along as a novice, you'll leave a convert. If you're a salsa afficionado, you've probably already sorted your ticket.

It starts on Friday night with a relaxed party then continues throughout Saturday and Sunday with workshops for all levels, showcase demonstrations from the stars, and chances to watch and dance to a live Cuban salsa band.

Every night there'll be a party with music from top salsa DJs, giving students the chance to mingle and perfect their dance moves with the instructors. It's going to be a lively, invigorating, and hugely enjoyable experience.

Salsa stars attending the weekender include twice World Salsa Champion Osbanis Tejeda from Cuba, internationally renowned instructor and compere Rohan Brown, and Portugal’s Kizoma dance sensation: Nelson de Oliveira Campos – plus a long line-up of salsa instructors from around the world.

The classes will give students the chance to experience various forms of dance within the Salsa family – Cuban, Cha-Cha, Son, Reggaeton and La Rueda plus the passion of the sensual dances Kizomba and Bachata.

The weekender is being held at the Mecure Last Drop Village Hotel and Spa in Bromley Cross, Bolton. You can do the whole weekend, staying at the hotel if you want accommodation, or buy a pass for Sunday's workshops, or a pass for the three party nights.

The price for the whole weekend, including all workshops and three party nights is £109. Hotel accommodation is at the special rate of £35 per person per night (bed and breakfast) or £45pppn (dinner, bed and breakfast), based based on double occupancy. The hotel itself is situated on the edge of open countryside, giving views of the West Pennine Moors.
