Autumn brought us an awesome treat, from Switzerland, Dj Galante and Colombia/UK, Dj Naranjo who definitely added another memorable salsa journey to our music/dance diaries. Both avid record collectors and talented Djs, they rocked the dancefloor with a great mix from our beloved genre of salsa. A fantastic combination of djs! Great show by Dance2Salsa 'Hombres en Clave' and a truly awesome class by the beloved Andrea Stewart and the incredible Jhesus Aponte who gave such a thorough and very enjoyable breakdown of fantastic movement, rhythm and partner work. The night however, was truly stolen by all the salser@s who attended and brought that electric atmosphere - a musical heaven - thank you all!
