Salsa by the Bay

Melbourne’s leading Cuban band, Carlito’s Way, will bring their eight-piece outfit to Geelong’s waterfront for a salsa spectacular on Friday, November 7. If you loved the music of Buena Vista Social Club, Carlito’s Way will stir your blood as they bring to life the authentic roots of Cuban rhythm.
Carlito’s Way are popular performers at numerous cultural festivals across Australia, so tickets are sure to sell fast for Salsa by the Bay at Waterfront Kitchen Café. The event is hosted by Geelong’s own local salsa dance club, La Vida Salsa Geelong Inc., to celebrate their tenth anniversary.
The dance floor will be pumping with Latin rhythms all night, including salsa, son, cha-cha-cha, rumba and reggaeton, plus legendary Latin DJ artist Mick Williams, direct from the Melbourne salsa club scene, will step in between band sets to play the hottest mix of salsa music.
Everyone is invited to join the party and salsa the night away. If you don’t know how to salsa, head to La Vida Salsa Monday night classes now so you can learn a few moves before November 7. Beginners start at 7.30 p.m. and the first class is free, so why not bring a buddy and give it a try. (No partner is required.)
Salsa by the Bay is on Friday, November 7 from 7.30 p.m. ’til midnight at Waterfront Kitchen Café at Deakin University’s Waterfront Campus, Western Beach Rd, corner Cunningham St, Geelong.
