Every first Friday of the month there is an excellent salsa event at The View in Brighton run by Carlton Thomas.. The social dancing is from 11pm to 2am which is my interest but the classes which are very professional start at 9pm. Please see the facebook event, the facebook group or the Cuban Vibes website for more details.
From the 16th anniversary month they have been opening an extra room downstairs. Upstairs in the Cuban Room they play the very best in Cuban Salsa, Timba, Son, Salsaton & Reggaeton with your favourite DJ’s Carlton & Kuban Ken. Downstairs they play the very best in salsa, bachata & kizomba with your favourite DJ’s Salsa Katanga & Andy Mobbs.
The result is a better night of salsa due it being less crowded and it’s nice to be able to switch rooms when you feel like something different in the other room.
UNFORTUNATELY TONIGHT THERE WAS A PRIVATE PARTY DOWNSTAIRS SO WE GOT A HOT SWEATY PARTY ON ONE ROOM BUT IT WAS GOOD – THERE WAS A FULL MOON OUTSIDE TO ADMIRE WHILE YOU LET THE WIND BLOW YOUR BODY DRY. I GOT THROUGH 5 SHIRTS!
