A weekly, all-ages salsa social at Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville, featuring beginner and intermediate salsa lessons and Cuban salsa dancing in a spacious ballroom setting.
Finally got to check Allegros out, and wow, this place gets packed! This definitely one of the biggest salsa socials in the Bay Area!
Allgeros has a very large dance studio, with one large room for salsa and chacha, with a smaller room on the side for bachateros. A lot of the dancers here dance Cuban-style salsa, so if you dance a different style, it can take some getting used to. Parking is plentiful if you come early, but the lot does get full during prime time.
Really loved the social here, the only thing I would say is that I felt the intermediate salsa lesson was pretty basic compared to what you might learn at somewhere like Hot Salsa Friday. However, overall a great social, and one of the best places to go dancing on Sundays.
Allegro is the very first place I ever went salsa dancing, and I've still got a lot of love for this giant and popular venue. Allegro is a ballroom with an enormous dance floor that gets absolutely packed on Sundays with a fun and really diverse crowed. It's an all ages event and pretty close to several universities so it's one of the few venues that has a bigger representation from the younger crowd.
Allegros is also unique in that its one of the few (the only?) venues in the bay area that specifically play timba and cuban style music. As a result you have lots of amazing cuban style dancers and a very different vibe from a mambo club.
