DJ Reuben from Salsa Latina (DjR) playing best Latin mixes around, with 2 decades of experience in organising these kinds of events. In-fact One of the few in New Zealand who has been running regular non-stop events since 2003 for the Latin dance scene in Christchurch.
From November 2023, we are planning to consolidate all dance styles, such as Kizomba, Bachata, and Salsa, into studio#1 only.
During the trial period at studio#2, we noticed varying attendance for Kizomba. Therefore, it seems more practical to centralise all dance activities in a single space. The dance floor will dictate how many songs will be played for each style.
• Is there any Dance Lessons
Not during social nights, but we do recommend joining our Free beginner classes during the week at our Studio at Salsa Latina.
