On June 27 and July 18 (both Wednesdays), from 7 to 9 pm, DanceInTime and AM Salsa will team up to bring a FREE Salsa and Latin Dance Program to the beautiful Veterans Plaza in Silver Spring. Come out and enjoy the lively Latin vibes and the friendly crowd. There will be lessons, performances and social dancing----all free!! Event is held in any weather other than severe storms, as it's under a covered pavillion. We had a wonderful time on May 16 at the last Salsa event there, and hope to "keep the party going!" We acknowledge the Silver Spring Town Center Inc. which kindly sponsors this event. Address: One Veterans Place; Silver Spring, MD 20910---at the corner of Ellsworth and Fenton.
Note: The Rueda Boot Camp scheduled for May 20 has been postponed. The venue made a scheduling error and unfortunately they don't have a space for DIT to run the bootcamp.... Stay tuned; we'll reschedule! Sorry!
