Want to learn how to dance salsa and bachata? ¡Vamos a bailar en Belmont!

In June, because of the Flower Show, our popular twice monthly salsa & bachata dance series moves from FDR Park to the beautiful grounds of Ridgeland Mansion in West Fairmount Park. Thanks to the generosity of our hosts – the Cancer Support Community & Joshua’s Catering, the night of dancing takes place like a “bailar ball” under a big event tent! You don’t want to miss out on this special temporary location! Experience culture, meet new people, and discover a fun and enjoyable way to keep yourself fit by moving your feet. Hosted by DJ Val Flores & Philly Outdoor Bachata & Salsa.

Tickets are for an hour dance lesson from 9:00-10:00 pm PLUS the social dance from 10:00-12:00! Lesson is from an experienced instructor, who will accommodate all levels.


TICKET PRICES:  Pay what you can- $10, $15, or $20 (per person)
