Timba Cuban Halloween Party, Sat Oct 26th at Salsa-N-Seattle

Posted by on 18 Oct 2013 | Tagged as: Events, Social

Cuban Halloween Party! But basically, just an excuse to dance this Saturday. The only difference is the space will be decked out in spooky decor. Don’t have a costume? That’s ok. Costumes aren’t really expected. DJ Reinier Valdes will be playing a mix of Timba, Salsa, Reggaeton, Bachata and Merengue.

Starts at 9:30pm until 2:00am $5 Cover. See  Salsa N Seattle for directions.

Support Ann Reynolds Recording of Original Cuban compositions

Posted by on 06 Oct 2013 | Tagged as: Kick Me !! (the poster)

Buenos dias, dancing friends
Please lend your support to my recording of original Cuban compositions- I have written Cuban son, cha-cha-cha, danzon, rumba and more- all very danceable as well as listenable and enjoyable.
Please support my efforts to get a fine recording of this music. See my Kickstarter and send along your support. I have only 10 days to go and still over $3000 to raise.
Note there is a dancer’s special of a couple sessions working on son and cha-cha-cha.
Mucha gracias – Ann-ita
