Our Monthly Salsa Social and this time RCSTF AFTER PARTY!!
This month our social happens on the same weekend as the Rose City Salsa & Timba Festival! So after dancing all weekend we will continue the party on Sunday at our monthly salsa social! DJ Pachuco (Saul) will be playing amazing salsa and cha cha!
And as usual this social will be how they do it in NY (think LVG and Jimmy Anton's socials): daytime, all ages, no alcohol (there are two bars next door), no judgement, no need to dress up; just tons of energy, sweat and dancing! No wall flowers allowed!
Come ready to dance to some amazing music! Every 1st Sunday of the month!
