Cambalache at Westlake Park Tues 8/21

Posted by on 19 Aug 2012 | Tagged as: Events

Tuesday there’s a choice of events: rueda at South Lake Union OR the last salsa event in this summer’s Dancing till Dusk series of outdoor dances in downtown parks. Cambalache is playing at Westlake Park downtown from 7 to 9:30. These are nice events, though not casino-focused. However, we can certainly dance casino and some ruedas there! It’s free, too. Here’s the website with more info: It actually starts at 6:00 but the first hour is a basic lesson in linear-style salsa.

Sunday Practice August 19

Posted by on 17 Aug 2012 | Tagged as: Notes From The Lab, Practice

Abby and other Boeing casineros will be joining us on Sunday to rehearse for the Aug 25th flash mob. I expect we’ll have two separate circles for much of the two hours (one circle for the rehearsal, another for folks just coming to dance for fun as well as folks working on basics), so if you’re not participating in the flash mob, come to practice this Sunday anyway. Abby has a short segment of choreography to go over with the flash mob folks, as well as some calls.

In case you missed the “call conversion chart” (cheat sheet for Boeing call names), here it is again: Boeing Seattle Rueda Equivalent Calls.

See you Sunday!
