UPDATE
 
The February 24 newsletter states that the Two for One offer presented by Salsa Rueda Santa Cruz is valid through February. This is incorrect. The offer will be valid on every Wednesday throughout March. Bring a friend and join Salsa Rueda Santa Cruz every Wednesday for an amazing class and a great time while paying admission for one person only! It does not have to be your first time, and your friend does not have to be your dance partner!
 
Do not miss a  special workshop this Monday, March 1 at 8 pm titled Salsa Suelta and Salsa Rueda Intermediate moves brought to you by Salsa Rueda Santa Cruz. See Newsletter for more info. 
 
The Portuguese Hall is the new place where salsa enthusiasts can move to the best music! Join any of the classes offered by Jose Resendiz or by Kirsten from Bailamos Salsa Rueda to learn some new moves. Then stay for the dance party that follows the classes. See Regular Weekly Events for more info.
