It’s the Irish Club as usual tonight to break my salsa-fast of two nights rest after 5 nights in a row from Wednesday at Irish, to Thursday at TLC, to Friday at Que-Rico, to Saturday at Salsatricity with Katie, to Sunday at Sexy & Sensual with Pearl. Every week more and more talented salseras turn up at the Irish Club and sometimes it’s almost as good as a London venue in terms of the number of quality of dances I have! This combined with the excellent salsa I‘m regularly experiencing at TLC on Thursdays and Med Bar on Sundays is making my 5 nights of salsa dancing from Wednesday to Sunday more satisfying than ever before! On top of all that it’s always good to see my good friend and well known celebrity paratriathlon champion Lauren Steadman there to support the event and dance the night away as she was looking happy after her recent silver medal success at the World Championships. If you’d like to meet and dance with this amazing 3 times World Champion, Olympic Silver Medalist and 5 times European Champion you know where to come!

MORE ABOUT SALSA AT THE IRISH CLUB AND DRIFT AFTERWARDS
Salsa Katanga runs an evening of salsa dancing at the Irish Club from 8:30pm-11pm every Wednesday evening! Join Katanga, Andy, Skye and Claire for salsa lessons, with 4 levels from beginner to advanced from 8:30pm or just come social dancing at 9:30pm as I do. It’s an excellent venue with parking nearby, sprung dance floor, reasonably priced drinks at the bar and a friendly atmosphere. A variety of salsa, bachata, animations and a taste of kizomba are played by a proprietor and DJ whose enthusiasm for salsa dancing is infectious to say the least ! 🙂
8:15pm Warm Up
8:30pm Lessons £6 – Students £4
9:30pm Social Dancing £3 – free from 10:30pm
11:15 Finishes at the Irish Centre but the party continues at the Drift Bar in Southsea hosted by The RUMBA – see more information on this old facebook event!
and then at
Drift Bar Southsea (Google map from Irish Club) with The RUMBA (I plan to arrive at 11:30 to see if there are enough dancers there to carry on dancing the night away but these days usually not! If I‘m with Teresa I can usually have a few with her but sometimes the music isn’t motivational to partner dancing!)
