Mueve la Cintura ‘exchange program’ – Vancouver,BC

Posted by on 21 Oct 2008 | Tagged as: Events, Music

Hola friends,

I’ve been talking with our friends from the north, Canada eh, that we met in Corvallis. They have been dying for a road trip possibility to Seattle to move their cinturas! I’ve given them the date of the Holiday Party with Grupo Ashe and Charanga Danzon on Friday Dec. 19th. How many of you will be around for this?? If there are enough of us here to give them a great party, I think it would be worthwhile…otherwise we can wait and tell them about another future party.

They have invited us up to Vancouver for an event and have offered up living room floors, or knowledge of affordable hotels near the event. 😉 (I plan on trying to attend) Here is the info:

On Saturday November 1st (8:30pm – 1:30am), the Cuban Fiesta is the place for people who like to social dance in an environment reminiscent of an island party.
This time we’ll have a dance performance by the energetic Cuban Salsa team ESTILO CUBANO, lead by Karlos Reyes, who will also be teaching a complimentary dance lesson at 9:30 pm.
FREE ADMISSION if you show up before 9:30 pm (not one minute later!).
DJ will play a merciless mix of Cuban Salsa, Reggaeton, Merengue, Bachata and Salsaton (the mix of Salsa and reggaeton).

Admission is $10 after 9:30 pm. Free parking underground (valid for three hours). Get ticket and have it stamped at Kentizen.

Kentizen Lounge (inside Tinseltown Mall in Chinatown, one block away from Stadium Skytrain Station. 88 West Pender @ Abbott

Seattle Xtreme Casino – The Movie

Hope everyone made it home safely and that you are all enjoying the extreme exhaustion after a weekend a great dancing!  I managed to capture a few really nice clips of our group and I’d like to put together a short video, but I need more.  Anyone have pictures and video that you are willing to share?

If so, drop me a line so we can arrange to transfer the files:  chaillemount@live.com  And stay tuned for more Seattle Xtreme Casino, soon to be released to a YouTube channel near you….
