Smooth Salsa lesson at Bournemouth, Loft Bar.

Monday 6th July 2009 with Neville Ashman of Latino beat [latinobeat.co.uk]

Words can never adequately describe an art from such as Salsa because it is about performance, but let me try and describe some of the moves I learnt. Having said that, get you arse down to a salsa class and learn to do it with finesse. Because one can never learn Salsa by just reading about.

The reason why I am putting it here is:
a)Inspirational. It’s a personal reminder of a good experience.
b) Motivational. Let’s assume you are unable to get to a Salsa class or venue then at least you may be encouraged to do so.

Neville has been running a series of special Monday classes with guest teachers which appears to be a success.

Salsa on a Monday just got a whole lot better!!!!!!……… after the success of booking of Sinead, Moe Flex and Rosa & Giles on Monday nights,…………

Latino Beat has now booked some of the best Instructors on the UK Salsa circuit for every Monday in July, see below for details………..
