Collegedale Parks and Recreation Department invites the public to put on their dancing shoes and join in learning to dance the Salsa on Tuesday, Sept. 28. A Latin dance made popular in the United States in the 1960s, Salsa is a combination of mambo, Pachanga, and rumba as well as American dances such as swing and tap.
G2G Salsa, a Chattanooga dance studio, will provide instructions for the evening. The course promises not only to hone dancing skills, but also provides a way to meet new people, said officials.
“My wife and I are excited to bring salsa dancing to the Collegedale community during Hispanic Heritage month,” said Jesse Ramos, owner of G2G Salsa. “No experience is required. Learn, laugh and dance with the G2G family.”
The class will be from 6-7:30 p.m. at Chestnut Hall at the Commons in Collegedale. The cost is $5 per participant and participants can come alone or bring a partner.
“Feedback from community members led us to searching out G2G Salsa and building a partnership in order to offer this evening of learning to salsa dance for adults,” said Christina Clark, Collegedale Parks and Recreation supervisor. “Participants will receive dance instructions and light refreshments will be provided. We are excited to offer more adult programs and to expose our community to new activities.”
