Monday, October 22, 2018

XCeed Events and G2G Salsa are bringing their dance social back to the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo in Songbirds South on Friday, Nov. 2.

This time they’re also bringing along dance performance teams all the way from Atlanta, South Carolina, Huntsville, and Nashville who will be performing while guests give their dancing feet a short break. Dance teams performing their world-class routines include: Pastiche & Company (Atlanta), Rocket City Bachata (Huntsville), Rachel Lewis (South Carolina), and others.

Latin music will be played by Latin DJ Mike Arana.

A complimentary dance lesson will be taught at the beginning of the night by local dance instructor and founder of G2G Salsa, Jesse Ramos. Mr. Ramos hosts dance socials on the first Friday of every month at his studio on Lee Highway and this month is bringing the party downtown.

Drinks will be available for purchase. As always, dress to impress.

Doors open at 8 p.m. with a salsa lesson starting at 8:30 p.m. and the dance social from 9 p.m.-1 a.m.
