OSCH bannerSalsa at City Hall continues!
Last week, our second outdoor party saw the biggest Outdoor Salsa turnout so far! This week, we’re waiting to see what the weather is like, but it’s likely we’ll be fleeing indoors to escape the rain. But the fun continues, even indoors: GoSalsa will teach a salsa workshop, DJs Humberto and dVo are providing the music, and there will be yummy snacks from Royi Fruta Bar and Mr. Churritos! Bonus: we will have 3 hot dance shows: two by local Peruvian dance groups Peru Danza and Contigo Peru, and one by Azucar!’s very own Natalie Gelman!! Like the event’s Facebook page for all the details!
