The balls that TLC hold at Winchester Guildhall are always impressive and successful. People come from all over the country which makes them events not to be missed particularly when it’s celebrating a significant milestone like this one which marks the 20th anniversary of the birth of TLC in Southampton. I learned salsa in 2003 with TLC so my first loyalty has always been to TLC and the amazing lady who runs it: Tracie Gooch.
There will be 4 beautiful ballrooms:
- Sizzling Salsa with 2 awesome DJ’s: Internationally renowned Julian The Duke from London & our very own DJ Marcus Groves mixing Salsa & Cubana with a soupçon of Bachata
- Beautiful Bachata with the fantastic DJ Simon Ofoborh – until 1am
- Kool Kizomba in the ‘Courtyard’ basement with awesome DJ Trevor Pinto until 1.30am
