APRIL Installment of Casino on Cardboard at Oceanside Harbor - Sat. Apr 19th

Que Bola Mi Gente!
It's will be a gorgeous day today to spend at the beach dancing to timba, son and cubaton as the sun goes down. This time, we are going back to Oceanside Harbor Beach for the April installment of Casino on Cardboard. This time, last year, we had it in April at Oceanside Harbor and we had a great time. See the picture below to where we will be on the sand and look for the Casino on Cardboard signage on the side of N. Pacific St. There will probably be some heavy traffic due to the good beach weather and whatever is going on in San Diego so plan out some time to drive here early and join us. 

Here are the details:
What: Casino on Cardboard at Oceanside Harbor
When: Saturday, April 19th from 5pm-8pm
Where: Oceanside Harbor Beach (from the I-5, exit Oceanside Harbor and go west. If you go east you end up at Camp Pendleton
Here is the link to the location/directions on Google Maps. We will be closer to where they wash the boats. This map is specifically made to show you exactly where we will be on the sand.

This is a free event and it is family friendly. It is a snack-luck, so bring something to share and bring some water or any beverage you like. We are taking donations for a "snap-together dance floor." The donation box will be next to the food.

I'll be leading a few salsa suelta lines and calling some ruedas. I've got some cool enchufla moves that I have to show you!! NEW STUFF (Enchufla Charangon, Happy Mambo, and Tumba Francesa con Manolin and bringing back some old ones (Nueva York and We Will Rock You!).  Come and cool off by the sea and enjoy dancing outside to natural air-conditioning especially made by the Pacific Ocean.


Pre-Rueda Flash Mob Video of the Carlsbad version of the "Happy" Song

Just before the Carlsbad Rueda Flash Mob on Saturday, March 29th, A guy was making his own lip-sync video on the same day just before we hit ground dancing at 4pm for our rueda de casino flash mob. Our friend, June Mattiza, casinera and Zumba queen, found the video and many of our flash mobsters were captured in it. The sentiment is definitely shared that we are very very happy to be living a good life in Southern California. That whole day was a "HAPPY" good time! Enjoy!

Timba in the mix of music at the Studio K's Dance Social This Friday Apr. 4th

Oye Mi Gente!
It is confirmed and stamp-approved by the owner of Studio K that there will be TIMBA (and lots of it) in the mix of kizomba, Zouk, and Bachata for their social event this Friday. While this flyer may not show"TIMBA" it IS going to happen! The owner loves timba and loves what Vidal is teaching in his rueda classes on Sundays, so we have a supporter for timba music and dancing casino and rueda de casino. Don't be shy and ask for timba! Any particular songs, ask Vidal, he will have it!! You like Havana de Primera? Vidal has it!! You like Los Van Van? Vidal has it! you Like Maykel Blanco? Vidal has it!
Below is what the FACEBOOK event page has as the description of this event:
Kizomba and Zouk are sexy and growing in SD but not many opportunities to practice, Bachata is everywhere but you can't go without it. And now also including Timba music for all the casineros out there! And then, there was a studio unused on Friday nights, so we thought, why not?
is
Introducing the BaZoumba Social: 3 Bachatas, 3 Zouk/ Kizombas, 1-2 Salsa / Merengue and 2-3 Timba tracks in every ten songs.
WHERE: Studio K - 9340 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, Suite F, San Diego, CA 92123 (in Kearny Mesa)
Cover $5, but $3 only for students or military. Located in the mall at the corner of Ruffin rd and Clairemont Mesa blvd, between the I-163 and I-15 on ramps.

All ages and abilities welcome. We are especially excited to offer a safe, welcoming and non-intimdating social dance opportunity for new dancers, especially in Zouk and Kizomba but also Bachata and other styles.

Note that this is a studio so no bar. However there are plenty of bars and resturants nearby, and plenty of free parking. Alcohol is not allowed inside the premesis, but this means that we can welcome all ages and go on for as long as you can dance. 2 am is just a nominal closing time :)

Come join us for a dance :)
Una Bulla for Studio K!!! I love them already!
