Welcome! My name is Tenia and I've started this group to promote salsa in the South Bay and West Side of Los Angeles. Please join us at our local events! I'd love to introduce you to other great salsa peeps, so please come say hello to me, and let me know you're from the MeetUp group!
Thank you for joining! I've watched so many salsa students and salsa lovers become a part of this great dance community and it's their new home! I hope you'll love it, too. [:)]
One great thing about the salsa community is that you don't need to bring a partner to get started! We have weekly classes and social dancing at Hacienda Hotel in El Segundo, plus special Meetup events and group classes. Los Angeles has a wonderful salsa scene, with so many great venues, DJs, and live bands.
