The San Francisco Salsa Festival is almost here…

http://www.SummerSalsaFest.com

The San Francisco Summer Salsa Fest is happening in 2010, and it’s quite a big deal!

An AMAZING event taking place at the Parc 55 Hotel …
Bands, Workshops, Fun and Social Dancing…

This is going to be a stellar event. Stellar! The main event taking place in the heart of San Francisco, for three days, at a beautiful hotel (blocks away from Union Square) – you need to plan.

Can you hear it? Can you hear it coming?
That’s the sound of the biggest salsa dance event of the summer, and it’s coming your way … but you have to get on board, FAST!

Here’s the scoop, limited room, and tickets are selling very quick, and this is probably the first time you even heard about it. My apologies about that – but you have to act now.

I wanted to give you some details too …

First, the website is now LIVE – which is great!
http://www.SummerSalsaFest.com
(and yes, we know about the error, we are working on it).

Second, we’re booking three stellar bands for the fest (plus some secret surprises). We’ll have the Bay Area’s top musicians and acts with us every night. Avance, Montuno Swing AND Mazacote, shaking the salsa room all night long!

Third, we’re partnering with the second most fun and social event of the Summer, the San Francisco Bachata Festival, under in the same hotel, at the same time. Your tickets give you access to BOTH Festivals. We’re Partners (and now you are too). This is one, big, super, stupendous, event …

Really it’s mind boggling how great this is going to be.
But, ask yourself, do you have tickets? If not, the prices ARE
increasing, and you have days to act to secure the least expensive tickets.

Honestly, you can’t miss out on this event!

Fourth– This is a fun festival for ALL dance levels (and no, we aren not just saying that). Here, there are five rooms of entertainment. That’s right. Five rooms. That’s tons of lessons and workshops going on every day, at all levels, with the best teachers from ALL OVER THE WORLD. You’ll learn SO much!

Fifth, performers. We’re not having many, but we are booking the best. Performance groups need to contact info@summersalsafest.com, please include demo reel, and # of performers.

Sixth, The hotel is becoming packed– and we all know what happens when that occurs! Yes, they increase rates.
The hotel is inexpensive right now … so make your reservations now.

I suggest that all local San Franciscans reserve a room too! It’s an incredibly cheap and very central hotel. If you live here, or are traveling from abroad, you’re going to love it.

I could keep writing about all the amazing things planned, but it’s a Thursday, and I don’t want to overwhelm you (plus, I’d like to go outside and play with my iPad).

Here are the steps, in order:

1) Visit the site, grabRe your tickets!

http://www.SummerSalsaFest.com

2) Reserve your Hotel Rooms

3) Book your Flights

My personal recommendations! While you could only make arrangements for the main weekend, and the main events, this is San Francisco, and there is A LOT to do here. Please, make sure to allow yourself extra time by coming early. We have 4 days of events leading up to the main festival activities.

Experience San Francisco during the day and night – you’ll love it!

See ya’ This Summer. Please Invite your Friends to the Facebook group:
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=115984107293

No, it’s not a Salsa Congress, and certainly not the San Francisco Salsa Congress. It’s a Festival …

What’s the difference? Well, fewer performances for one. A lot fewer performances. That’s probably one of the main differences, yet still, we’ll be showcasing several exceptional dance teams and performers.

Of course, they’ll be all day workshops as well, and classes for all levels (yes, even beginner classes), which certainly sets it apart. A real strong focus on beginner’s and intermediate’s. But it’s more …

The Festival is foremost about FUN … Like, having as much as possible.
The Festival caters to beginners …
The Festival places SOCIAL Dancing above all else …
The Festival showcases the BEST music …
The Festival is in San Francisco, right off Union Square …
The Festival is a week long event, with the final four days at the Parc 55 Hotel …

Hmmm … what else? Oh yeh, a few thousand of our closest friends, with room to dance, mingle and spread the LOVE OF SALSA!
