September 2019
Alex and Claudiu

So What's Happening in September ?

Since the Ivanhoe is in use, we are moving house for one weekend only. We'll be in the Crescent Arts Centre on the Saturday and The Vault Artists Studio on the Sunday, with guest teachers all the way from Romania and hopefully guest DJ from London. On the Saturday night, we'll have two rooms of dancing, one for salsa/bachata and the other dedicated to Kizomba.

Who are the teachers ?

SALSA - If any of you have been to the Irish Salsa Congress in Maynooth over the past few years, you will have come across Alex and Claudiu from Melodia Project. They are amazing dancers, teachers and performers. Their main focus when dancing is on technique and musicality, moving you out of your comfort zone a little and challenging you to improve your dancing by listening to and interpreting the music.

KIZOMBA - We are also lucky to be joined on the Saturday evening by K4 Kizomba and their special guests Abigail & Tony Wylie, who will be teaching some lessons at 8pm then hosting the kizomba room along with our local teachers and promoters.

Where are the venues ?

For the Saturday daytime classes and evening party, we will be at the Crescent Arts Centre (click for directions on Google Maps), just down the road from Queens University. For the Sunday workshops, we'll be at Adele's new venue of the Vault Artists Studio in East Belfast (click for directions on Google Maps).

Please note that there is no bar on Saturday night. Please bring your own drinks and nibbles.


What is the schedule for classes and parties ?

Although this may change slightly, the timetable is currently planned to be as follows :

  • Saturday afternoon - salsa workshops for Improver and Intermediate level from 1.30 to 5pm.
  • Saturday evening - classes in salsa and kizomba from 8 to 9pm
  • Saturday parties - two rooms of dancing from 9pm to 1am
  • Sunday afternoon - two specialised salsa workshops from 2 to 4pm
