Azúcar! News – Week of February 25

Monday is the usual news day on the Azúcar! Blog. This issue is coming late, because sometimes life happens. We are sorry to have delayed your salsa news fix though! Here are your latest school updates and news from around the Ottawa salsa scene.

New Intro to Salsa A session starts next week!
As most of you know, our Intro to Salsa A classes run on a 7-week schedule, and the next session will start the week of March 4th. Class times will be as follows:

  • Wednesdays, 6-7pm
  • Saturdays, 11am-noon

If you’re interested in taking your first steps into salsa, or know someone who might, please email us at!

New Intro to Salsa B session starts next week as well!
If you’re in our Intro to Salsa A class right now, then as of next week, you’ll be starting the next 7-week session – make sure to register to secure your spot!

If you haven’t taken classes with us before, but know some salsa basics (basic steps, right and left turns, cross-body leads and inside travelling turns at a minimum), then our Intro to Salsa B is for you as well! Class times will be:

  • Wednesdays, 7-8pm
  • Saturdays, noon-1pm

Azúcar! at Rahim’s this Friday
We’ll be teaching a salsa workshop at Rahim’s this Friday, from 8 to 9pm. Come out for some fun beginner-friendly moves!

Open House this Saturday!
We are hosting another open studio night this Saturday, March 2nd, starting at 7pm!

From 7 to 8pm, you can choose between an absolute beginner salsa and merengue workshop (free!), or an intermediate cha cha class ($8) by Emilie and Patrick. Afterwards, we’ll keep our studio open for social dancing for a bit, before hopefully heading to Salsaria!

Burlesque is Back!
After the success of our last Burlesque workshop, we’re doing it again, next Saturday, March 9th. This time, we have two sexy workshops by Emilie Phaneuf to bring out your inner bombshell!
