Saturday night was the hugest Salsa Party to date with over 200 people dancing up a Salsa storm @ the Bayswater.
The fun started at lunch time with Hervey Bay’s Jeanette Maynes from Design House and event manager of the Salsa Group parading the incredible Latin dance performers from Vida Latina Dance Co. along our Esplanade at Torquay promoting their upcoming performance; Latin Fantasy “Lolita’s Story’ creating quite a stir for tourists & motorists. This production will be staged at ZPAC Theatre, Scarness on the 18th & 19th of December 2009 with tickets on sale now at Mary Ryan’s Bookstore.
Design House is the major sponsor of the Salsa Group and is also sponsoring and providing advertising and media assistance to Latin Fantasy “Lolita’s Story’ & The Vida Latina Dance Co. “I feel the Fraser Coast needs more fun social alternative’s for all age groups and being able to attract such friendly and professional performers to our area through the Salsa Group and promote them utilising Design House is just an amazing opportunity”, says Jeanette.
The party started with some Latin music to put everyone in the mood, and led into a performance from local Latin dance students followed by a Salsa basics lesson with their instructor Taylor Harte from ‘I Harte Latin’ dance studio in Hervey Bay.
Then the Vida Latina Dance Troupe really got the party pumping, interacting and dancing with attendee’s, many commenting on their down to earth attitude for such professional & talented performers. They held a male and female dance competition to win tickets to their performance In Dec, being quite hilarious especially the “Bum Shake” comp. Next the Vida Latina Ladies paraded in their petite feathered Samba costumes adding to the excitement of the crowd with several jaws dropping in admiration and photo’s being snapped.
The party wrapped up close to midnight with a fun high energy night of socialising & dancing had by all …. The next Salsa ‘Christmas’ Party is on Sat Dec 19th at the Bayswater with the Vida Latina Dance Troupe attending again for their performance after party.
