LV vs NL: Salsa

Finally. Twice. Finally I managed to dance salsa in the NL and finally I managed to sit down and make some notes about it. Luckily, I have promised some info to a couple of people. Once promised – done 😉

Dus. Nata has finally managed to do some salsa steps in the local atmosphere. The first party which I managed to attend (thanks to DJ Andres) took place on Salsa Boot Rotterdam within a big Latin Festival in Rdam. I wouldn’t even call it a boat – it was indeed more like a ship with several “verdiepingen” (floors) and several halls with different music: salsa, latinmix, tango & zouk. True enough, I haven’t managed to get out of salsa room, even missed all the shows… Instead, I got spotted on a couple of pictures taken during the event. Continue reading

Salsa Beach Party

“Polar Hedgehog” in Dzintari, Jūrmala greeted us yesterday once again – it was the second Salsa Beach Party this year. Well, it actually was HipHop Salsa Beach Party, but I was not much interested in the first part of it. Sorry guys, but that turning on your heads is not really my cup of tea…

We all spent a great time by the sea: were sunbathing, swimming and playing volleyball during the day, and moving our bodies in salsa rhythm (even on catamarans) during the evening. Lots of fun and sun. Viva La Salsa 😉

It’s showtime!

Riga Salsa Festival is over but the videos are still there. I’ve been looking through the Youtube library of my friend for days so far enjoying watching the shows over and over again. My favourites among foreign guests are Neeraj Maskara (India – Switzerland) & Małgosia Kulpa (Poland) presenting their beautiful show with precise music interpretation and fantastic movements.

Giving account to our local groups, I adore Bailarico show – Vineta & Mareks.

Riga Salsa Festival

Though I was not dancing much during the last 9 months since the last Riga Salsa Festival in 2008, I could not resist spending another 4 days in a row in salsa rhythm. Salsa Party Marathon started yesterday by attending Festival Pre-party in rather new club Scandal – cozy and posh venue which calls itself the best night club in Riga. We are returning there on Sunday to have Good-Bye Party for those who survive 😉
Leaving to Red Party now and looking forward to the Grand Party both taking place in Golden Hall of Riga Latvian Society. Red dress-code for tonight is ready to be put on. Bailamos!

Wings & Horns in Salsa Rythm

One should never leave Friday the 13th without attention and as this time it came to be to close to St.Valentine’s Day our Entertainment Committee of VivaLaSalsa decided to combine these two events in one – so Angel & Devil Party came as an idea. It appeared that there are much more devils than angels – playing a bad role seems to be easier. Nonetheless, party was fun and full of laugh as thematic parties usually are.

Just a couple of pictures here, the rest are there 😉
