Recap of DMV Homecoming Reunion Salsa Party 9/17/2016

Yes Indeed- My Salsa Fix was sated and my dancing soul was nourished. Great Party with a packed house with the energy on Fleek. So wonderful to see so many seasoned dancers from the DMV and out of towners out and about.

Music was giving me a Salsa Contact high via a great flow and I expected nothing less from DJ Renzo aka Lorenzo Haire and DJ Neo akaPaul Hernandez. Mainly Salsa but a regular rotation of a few bachatas. Of course I stalked the dancefloor for suitable partners whenever the salsa came on but did get in 2 Bachatas as well. In fact, one of those dances, I actually danced what I believe is termed Sensual Bachata or to be more precise, my partner attempted valiantly to lead me into what i assume were regulation Sensual Bachata moves that I followed rather awkwardly. Body & Booty Rolls, Dips, Head Rolls are really foreign territory for me but I gave it my best shot. Hopefully I didn’t embarrass my partner too badly. He was a good sport and gave me reassuring goodwill smiles throughout the dance even when he realized he may have picked poorly his partner (ME) to fully express and enjoy that bachata song artistically and sensually. .

The venue, Salsa with Sylvia, is fantastic. Modern clean decor with wonderfully appointed artwork on beautiful red walls, Wall to Wall Mirrors on one side of studio, Delightful lighting decor in the ceiling and well lit space- not too light and not too dark.

Performances ROCKED! 2 groups represented the coming new generation of dancers who are filled with so much potential- Titanes Salseros and the University of Maryland Latin Dance Team. 2 Solos from Lovely Ladies who are in possession of Gargantuan Talent, Technique, and Flava- Ana Paula Rodrigues Direct from Brazil and Romina Ritz from Mexico. 1 collaboration of seasoned performers who know how to bring the Drama and Sabor to any performance- Orlando Machuca Jr, Julissa Cruz, & Hu Go.

Fun Night of Dancing that has me spent, Next DMV Reunion Homecoming hosted by Earl Rush, Shaka Brown, Lorenzo Haire is Sat Nov 19, 2016. .
