This is Salsa Dorado, providing Salsa and Rueda dance instruction in El Dorado County, California. Near to Sacramento, our venues continue to grow with dedicated dancers of all ages. Many of the dance events are close to Placerville, El Dorado Hills and Folsom.
Our venues are designed to provide Salsa dance instruction in a fun and relaxed environment followed by dancing to the addicting rhythms of Salsa, Cha Cha Cha, Merengue, and Bachata music. Giving dancers the opportunity to practice their moves and enjoy the social aspects of dancing Salsa. In addition to providing Salsa and Rueda dancing in our foothill community we also encourage our dancers to visit all Salsa venues in Sacramento and beyond.
LEARN TO DANCE
At each Salsa venue, an introductory lesson is provided; we start with the Salsa basics so you can start dancing right away. Followed up with an intermediate salsa pattern to give those with Salsa dance experience a new challenge and benefit from the lesson. Then stay and practice on the dance floor!
We started teaching Salsa about 10 years ago out of our desire to have fun and exciting dance events in the area that we would enjoy, with the hope that others would as well. Over the years we have been though several changes, and have always attempted to find locations to host a salsa night that works for the enjoyment of dancers as well as the venue. With that said, we must announce that we no longer have a salsa lesson or dance at It's Personal Restaurant in Placerville. The restaurant has changed ownership and has decided to return to hosting a celebrity bartender night on Wednesday since September. With this sudden news we have decided to take a hiatus from promoting Salsa. This year has been a challenging year in which we’ve gone from having three successful Salsa venues to none. Our current goal is to come back strong in 2017 with revived energy and new venues for our long standing Wednesday night and our outdoor Summer Friday night. Finding venues that have the elements necessary to succeed is a daunting task. It not only takes the right location, atmosphere and ambiance but it also requires owners who are enthusiastic about allowing us to host Salsa at their restaurant. We are very thankfully the owners of It’s Personal for allowing us to invade their unique space with Salsa each Wednesday with their support and enthusiasm for the past 11 months.
We are also thankful for YOU our dedicated Salseras and Salseros who continue to support our salsa community because in the end that is what salsa dancing creates, a community. Creation of new friendships and shared laughter is but a few of the wonderful bi-products of salsa dancing. We hope that you will understand our decision to postpone finding a new venue until next year.
Starting September, for those of you on our email distribution list, there will no longer be a weekly email blast. Instead there will be a monthly email to announce upcoming dance related events along with special dance news in and around our area.
Hopefully everyone can make it one last time for our final night this Wednesday. We look forward to a fresh start in 2017. As always, and until then….. see you on the dance floor.
