HI folks

Mike and Simona from Rumbanana in Corvalis will be in the Seattle area the weekend of March 25 (to perform with groupo ashe) and asked if we’d be interested in them teaching some workshops the Saturday 26th.

If we can get a ballpark idea if folks are up for it ,we should book a studio someplace soon.

Hello! My friend Anara, who runs a dance studio in Boston, just opened registration for her upcoming (LEGAL) trips to Cuba (April and July), see details below.

Travel to Cuba on a Dance & Music Research Trip!

The Obama administration is relaxing the US travel restrictions, so more people can now qualify to go to Cuba on a legal research trip.

* focus on the roots of Salsa including Afro-Cuban, Son & Rumba
*observing breath-taking performances
