Here in the Bay Area there's somewhere to go salsa dancing pretty much every night of the week-- unless it's Saturday and you live in the South Bay. Then your only option is to drive all the way up to San Francisco to get your salsa fix.
Latin Nights organized by Isidro Corona (formerly by Steve Vasco and DanceX2) helps to solve this conundrum by bringing a Saturday night dance social right to San Jose. With two salsa lessons taught by world class salsa instructors Isidro Corona & Ariel Lehaitre (and other instructors), and dancing in the spacious Dance Boulevard ballroom, Latin Nights is good deal, especially with their student discount.
My only complaint with the place is the lighting, which I thought was a little bright for a salsa social, and the seating arrangement can make for quite a trek around the dance floor finding someone to dance. But these are small nitpicks for an otherwise great salsa event which will hopefully continue to grow to be the goto spot for salsa dancing on Saturdays.
For many South Bay dancers, Saturday night is a bit dreaded with the only worthwhile events usually happening in the City. Enter Latin Nights, a new monthly social seeking to solve just that problem.
With DJ Felipe Martinez (El de la Clave) spinning classic mambo and salsa dura, this is definitely a dancer-friendly event. The floor is huge and the venue itself is plenty spacious - although the layout is odd. There is a lot of depth to the dance floor making seating arrangements a bit on the awkward side.
At $12 general admission, this event is over-priced for me - for that kind of money you start to expect live music. Still it's great to have the option of staying in the South Bay on a Saturday night.
