Back in 2002 when we first started our first salsa lessons, there were maybe just two other places that taught salsa lessons regularly in San Jose. Back then we didn't have Yelp or Google maps to let us know about the available salsa lessons. Word simply spread by word-of-mouth. The salsa community was quite small.
Fast forward to 2012. With shows such as "So You Think You Can Dance" or "Dancing with the Stars" uttering the words "salsa dancing" and most people will know what you mean. Go onto Yelp and search for "salsa dancing" will produce a whole bunch of options for you in any area you are looking at. San Jose and the surround area especially now has lots of options, but San Jose is a big city with lots of venues and options.
Sonoma County's salsa scene is very small, small enough where we found a need to enter the area and offer our services. We are now based in Sonoma County, approximately 1.5 hours north of San Jose (think Wine Country).
Our new address is 6780 Depot Street in Sebastopol, CA, with the city of Santa Rosa as our immediate neighbor. We will be partnering up with "Move 2 Change Studio" in offering salsa lessons to an area that's excited to have us.
We will have two nights of salsa lessons: Wednesdays and Fridays. We have a planned Dance Party on June 21, 2013. If it's successful we'll have another one for July.
We're sorry that this comes as a disappointment to our San Jose and south bay area fans. Although we miss being in San Jose, Sebastopol and Santa Rosa need us right now. We'll stay connected with our audience via our Two-Minute Thursday videos and Hot Pick Mondays. We will also be teaching in San Jose at special events.
