Yes, that’s right, we’ve been running the Thames Salsa Cruise for a whopping 20 whole years this summer! Two decades of dancing on the decks of MV Royalty, up and down the River to the music of DJ Felicidad and partying all the way and what fun it’s been :-) The Thames, the skyline and faces have changed but the boat, the fun, and the energy is better than ever so if you’re new to this event or want to revisit it, we would love you to come and share this fabulous moment with us!

Come and salsa the River as we cruise from the Festival Pier Southbank to the Barrier and back. Watch the sunset as you sip a drink on the back deck, then see the River sparkle as the city lights up; all the while listening to some great salsa music to entice you back to the dance floor.

sprite-news Events:

Following the success of Deep Salsa this Ocober here's another date not to be missed.
The NEW 'Deep Salsa for Intermediates' Salsa Rapido Intensive course.

This course is not and bunch of moves, styling or footwork. It’s for dancers who are looking to energise their salsa through looking at things in a different way. It uses models and exercises that you may not be familiar with, but they allow you to discover the underlying psychology and ways to change the way you dance if necessary.

Salsa Rapido® Method:
The ethos of Salsa Rapido is the same at all levels.It’s the Fast, Fun and Progressive approach to salsa. In other words I want to get you better faster, while having a heap of fun. If you think teaching should be a dry, boring or an authoritarian experience, be warned you’ll hate this! It's fun and challenging.

Are you intermediate?
My definition of an intermediate is someone who regularly dances freestyle salsa.
I’m the first to admit that’s a wide group of levels but I’m working on the basis that those who dance in clubs should know enough to lead/ follow and can operate at ‘club speed’. Improvers can handle the info but struggle to implement things as fast simply because they haven't had enough ‘real time’ dance floor experience.
If you’re not sure call me 07939012231

11.30am -5pm at Salsa Soho, 96 Charing Cross Road,

Here's my recent review of a Bar + Block Kings Cross – Simply Great Steak

Within earshot of the buzz emanating from bustling Kings Cross station, on York Road, is Bar + Block. The buzz continues inside, as if London’s tourists, shopper and business types have paused for a moment for a drink and a chat at the bar before stepping back into the hussel and bussel of their lives.
We’re seated in the restaurant section behind the bar

After months in the wilderness of Camden Market we're back at the venue formerly known as The Cuban and now called Gabeto. It's a new clean shiny bar in the same building and the decor's more London and less Havana.

Some of the classes will be in Gabeto bar and some in Gabeto Studio AKA Alchemy but come to the bar first.

NEW START TIME OF 7.30pm we will be starting on time with or without you so please check in early.

New Pricing: £10 per evening. We'll be introducing a Cafe Nero style loyalty card.

I'd like to thank everyone for their support over this summer and welcome everyone back to get this night buzzing.
