Azúcar! News – Week of March 25

Monday is news day on the Azúcar! Blog. Here are your latest school updates and news from around the Ottawa salsa scene.

Can you believe March is almost over… and no sign of spring yet?
We’re still waiting to bust out our spring clothes, but in the meantime, we’re keeping things HOT in our studio with new classes, and gearing up for Salsafair!

The Azucar! Studio will be closed on:

  1. Monday, April 1st (Easter Monday). There will be no Intermediate 1 class on Easter Monday. However, our Saturday (March 30) classes are still on!
  2. Saturday, April 6th (Salsafair). Salsafair is the annual international salsa congress of the Ottawa region. We’re closing our studio to allow all our teachers to attend, and to encourage all of you to go too!

Emilie Phaneuf’s special workshops are getting even more fun!
The current special workshop session is ending on April 2nd. A new 12-week workshop session is starting the very next week, with MORE classes on both Tuesdays and Saturdays! Here’s the schedule breakdown:

Tuesdays (April 9 – June 25)
6.00 – 7.00pm – Salsa Ladies’ Styling
7.00 – 8.00pm – Dancehall Funk

End of Winter session
There are 5 weeks left in our Winter 2013 session – the last day of classes will be April 21! While that seems really far away now, we’re already planning some cool end-of-session workshops and trials to help us plan our Spring/Summer classes. Be on the lookout for spin technique workshops, body conditioning classes, and other fun things to get your hips shaking.
