A Happy New Year of Salsa in London

As you are reading this, it is fair to assume that you have survived the heady mixture of salsa parties, friends, family and office parties this festive season.
Happy New Year.

It all starts again.
For many life doesn't begin again till next Monday or until the kids are back to school. I have lots of early new years early cheer that will blow away those blues and get you dancing not only in January but right the way through to next years holiday season. 

Happy New YearAlong with the other sites in the www.A2Z.Events network www.londonsalsa.co.uk aim is to get you dancing more often this year. 



Have you had the New Years resolution conversation with anyone?
You know the one.

Whether it is getting fitter, giving up cigarettes, meeting new people, not having a drink for a month, get out more often or plainly the expression of wanting to have more fun.
If so, share your discovery of LondonSalsa.co.uk and tell your friend, your family member or colleague to find a class either close to work or near home. Bring the joy of dance into their lives and help solve one or more of those other resolutions.


If this is your first newsletter from London Salsa, welcome and let me tell you that the next minute of reading will bring you quality information whether you are a beginner or a salsa guru.  If there isn’t enough news for you, I’d urge you to check out a great deal more at www.londonsalsa.co.uk. I don’t mean just information but also a full selection of special offers that the capital’s promoters have added to the site to entice you to their lessons, clubs and parties.

Do yourself one other favour. Log into your control panel on LondonSalsa, Bachata.events or LondonKizomba.co.uk and start using your scrapbook. I looked through mine over the holidays and it simply reminded me of some really special moments.


Starting the weekend with lessons in bachata and salsa on Friday, Putney hasn't missed a single beat over the holidays and the social will be social.

On New Year's Eve, one of the locals at my club stood up and shouted that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every person in the club to be standing next to the one person who made their life worth living.

Well, it was kind of embarrassing.  As the clock struck - the DJ was almost crushed to death.

Have fun on a dance floor near you soon,
