SUMMER MAY BE OVER, BUT DANCING ISN’T
We will officially say goodbye to summer just before the autumn equinox, but remembering that this doesn’t mean dancing is over. In fact, for us, it will be the starting point of the 2023-2024 school year, which begins on Monday the 25th.
As always, we are delighted to organize free dance events in Madrid, but we must always remember that it is very important to leave the space clean.
This dance event will take place at La Ermita de Virgen del Puerto on the 20th at 8 PM, and, of course, it will be free of charge. We will also take the opportunity to make the latest group assignments.
Note that we only translated some of the events, click on the Spanish flag at the top right to switch the language to Spanish and be able to check all the events.

Special workshop – Rueda Equis with Diego and Noe – Dame Five Salsa
Another CELEBRITY Rueda workshop! This time, Diego and Noe, the globetrotting dynamic teacher duo and creators of High Five Salsa in the UK, are coming to teach their very own new rueda structure, RUEDA EQUIS, created in colaboration with Sassan (Berlin classes – Salsa Sassan).
Time: Saturday Oct. 5, 2019 6.30 to 8.30pm
Place: Acting (Metro Argüelles / Ventura Rodríguez)
Level: Basic rueda knowledge required
Diego and Noe will challenge you and keep you in stitches. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn a fun new Rueda structure from the creators themselves! If you don’t believe us, just ask those D2S students who got a sneak peak this summer at the Salsa Nor Congress. It’s a fun, accessible, mind bending and egalitarian structure. What more could you ask for?
Rueda EQUIS doesn’t have leads or followers, but Leadowers! Therefore, it will always help if you have basic knowledge of both roles, althout it is not required.
And remember, Dame2Salsa + High Five Salsa = Dame Five Salsa
