If you like Salsa — the dance, not the tomato-based condiment — then get your dancing shoes out for this weekend, as the Upstate NY Fall Latin Dance Weekend is coming to Rochester.
Before the weekend goes into full swing figuratively and literally, head to Lovin' Cup (300 Park Point Drive) Thursday, October 31, and take part in its Salsaween Party. An hour-long lesson starts at 8 p.m., and the rest of the night is filled with dancing, live salsa bands, and DJs as well.
The Latin Dance Weekend kicks off Friday at Rhythm Society (758 South Ave.) at 9 p.m. With live performances from local, national, and international dance professionals in the styles of Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba and Cha Cha, the weekend starts up hot.
If the heat is too much for you, take part in dance workshops Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and learn a thing or two about Latin dance from some of the best Latin dance pros the world has to offer. Show off your new skills later in the night as world-class DJs play the best Latin music.
The weekend wraps up with one last day of workshops at Rhythm Society on Sunday 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Prices for events run from $15 to $89. Visit lovincup.com and latindanceweekend.eventbrite.com for more info.
