What you'll do

A unique night of Salsa! Our venue plays the very best Salsa and Latin tunes so we can dance the night away. Located on the beautiful Malecon, our special guest is "Azukar" the well known Salsa teacher and dancer from Alcapulco who will perform and be on hand to teach individually throughout the night! The night starts at 8pm with a group Salsa class led by Azukar and your host. You will then get to practice your dance moves. Music is a live Cuban 8 piece band which plays until midnight.
Other things to note
You do not need to be an experienced Salsa or Latin dancer to enjoy this experience. It is not required for you to join the group Salsa dance class or the private lesson. You are welcome to just watch the dance. The private lesson is personalized to your level of experience and choice of style. Azucar will get you dancing and find a way for you to join in if you want, but if only 1 person wants to dance and the other watch, that’s ok too! You will have Azucar’s personal attention for two hours and after that you can relax until midnight and watch the more experienced dancers entertain you.

In my recent Vancouver TV interview entitled "Salsa your way to happiness" I talk about finding joy and happiness in the Salsa scene in Puerto Vallarta. I've been visiting Vallarta for more than 5 years and now live here full-time after falling in love with a Mexican Salsa dancer and teacher. I've been dancing Salsa ever since and I'm passionate about sharing the unique authentic Mexican Salsa spots. I will introduce you to the favourite hang out places and we will dance the night away, whether you are a complete beginner, a passionate learner or an experienced dancer. Your lesson will be personalized to your experience level. I'm often the only foreigner and I can explain the Salsa etiquette for dancing and partnering.

Oh what a fun experience! I really connected with Julie, she is a gem. It felt more like hanging out with old friends. They have so much energy and the night was filled with laughter and dancing. They are well versed and know the city well and all the "hot spots" Do yourself a favor and book a night of dancing with them!

Thank you so much Julie and Azukar (Sugar and Spice) for an amazing evening of entertainment, music and dance! It was a fantastic mix of entertainment, watching the very talented local Salsa dancers and trying Salsa out myself! The lesson Azukar gave me at the start of the evening helped me to learn the basic steps so that I felt confident enough to say "yes" to the many partners eager to show me true authentic Mexican dance etiquette! I felt almost as though I had stepped back in time where gentlemen gently led you in a dance and even if you didn't know the steps, you looked like you know what you were doing! This is quite different from the culture I'm used to where dance is a way to get close to a potential date! This really was the authentic latin dance scene and with the guidance of Julie and Azukar I was made to feel like one of the locals. It was very entertaining just watching Julie and Azukar dance, but their infectious smile and encouragement meant I actually danced a lot more than I expected! I can see that this experience would be suitable for anyone at any level of dance and for partners as well. Thanks Julie and Azukar you truly made my vacation in Puerto Vallarta very special by showing me the way the locals really enjoy life here! I am glad I didn't pick a "workshop" or a group experience that didn't include the personalized lesson! Dr Manon
