Hot Salsa Saturday, aka 'HSS', is the revival of the popular Hot Salsa Friday social. Held at the Dance Boulevard in San Jose, HSS is a great place to go dancing on Saturday nights, drawing a good mix of beginners and experienced dancers.
The evening starts off with salsa lessons by World Salsa Champion Michelle Castro, who is a world-class dancer and co-director of Mambonova dance company. After the lessons, dinner is served (usually Chinese food). Hot Salsa Saturday is one of the few salsa places that I know of that serves food, and it's a nice way to relax and get to know people after the lesson, as well as provide much needed fuel for the dancing which goes on until the wee hours of the morning.
Unlike many other dance socials, HSS is held in a dance studio rather than a bar, which means it's open to dancers of all ages. The venue is quite spacious with a great dance floor, and the large parking lot offers plenty of parking.
Hot Salsa Saturday is held every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Saturday of the month, and it's a great spot to hit if you live in the South Bay.
