What's Going On

Rooftop Salsa Blog - January 2017



The 2017 dancing season is off and running.

The third week of January will have two parties.

Emmanuel Sowah of SalsaSpirit and Herril Govender of Dance Cafe will co-host a joint party at Dance Cafe on January 21st.


On the same day, BailaAfrika will also host a party at Moyo’s Melrose Arch.

Ahora Si will host their first party of the year on the evening of Sunday, January 29th at the Bannister Hotel in Braamfontein.


Weekly Parties

Rooftop Salsa resumed weekly parties on January 8th. Because of the threat of rain, the party was held in a downstairs loft, which worked out suitably as a backup space for rainy days.


We had a vibey party on the roof last Sunday and will have another one this Sunday, January 22.

Cape Town Salsa Festival

Theo Mseka, or TeddyBear Salsa, the mastermind along with Chilly Alisar, of the Cape Town Salsa Festival, has scheduled a meeting on January 21 with leaders of the Joburg salsa community regarding the festival and the direction it will take in the coming months. Will keep you posted.
