Shows and Parties
On Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, you will be enjoying FOUR fantastic Salsa parties. The atmosphere is set to be electric, as the nights kick off with performances by some of the world’s best Salsa dancers.
International performers will include: Victor & Burju (Boston), Al "Liquid Silver" & Karla Espinoza (Los Angeles), Alex Lee & Kim Nodora (San Francisco), Jordan & Tatiana (World Swing Champions), Dave Paris & Zoe Klein (New York), Johnny Vasquez (Mexico) plus teams from New Zealand, Korea & Malaysia as well.
There will also be a strong representation from Australian teams, with spectacular performances by professional and student teams from almost every state and territory.
However, after the shows are over, the party will be only just beginning! As you step onto our world class dance floor, you’ll be transported to a Salsa paradise. You can take your pick of dance partners from all over Australia and the world, and enjoy some of Australia’s finest Salsa bands and DJs.
There will also be a special beginners Salsa class run by Latin Dance Australia, Suave Dance Company and Bailemos in the Salsa Athletes Room, so you can bring those friends of yours you haven’t already hooked onto Salsa to enjoy the nights as well!
Full bar & food services will be provided, as well as a Salsa shopping bazaar, where you will be able to buy shoes, clothes, music, DVDs and other exciting products that Salsa dancers just can’t live without! Stay tuned for information about bands and DJs, including international and interstate guests!
Entry to the venue will be from 8pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, and we recommend that you get in early to secure the best seat for the shows. The night will kick off at 8:30pm in the Sydney Arena, with one and an half hour of shows on our custom designed stage.
There will be tiered seating for this event so that everyone has a great view. After the show is finished, you can make your way to the huge social dance floor for dancing from 10pm until 3am to fantastic live bands and DJs every night….including interstate and international guests.
