Our Review:

Held on the 2nd Saturday of every month, the Mambonova Social has grown to be one of the biggest salsa socials in the South Bay.

The social is held at Dance Boulevard in San Jose, which seems to be the go-to spot for salsa socials these days, which isn't surprising since it's a great venue. If you've never been there before, it's a spacious studio with a great floor and plenty of parking. The event is also all-ages since it's at a dance studio and not a night club.

What's nice about the social is that it has 2 rooms for dancing: salsa in the main room, and a smaller room for bachata & kizomba. As someone who mainly dances salsa, I enjoy being able to dance as much salsa as I want, with the occasional break to cool off in the bachata room.

Hector (the organizer of the event) likes to mix things up too, and there are special performances and competitions at the event throughout the year to keep things interesting. The social is also one of the few places in the South Bay where you can take salsa lessons On2.

Long story short: Great music, great dancers, great venue; this is the place to go dancing every 2nd Saturday in San Jose.

Never miss another salsa event!
