Let’s Dance During the Day

en in dance • 2 min read

Last week I wrote about the need for new types of salsa events to have better diversity. To have more amazing places to learn and even more awesome places for social dancing. The problem is, it’s not going to happen anytime soon. When I discuss this topic with friends, it’s something really missing. I would love to have some “social weekend” without waiting. Also, I want to have proof it can be excellent.

Well… let’s do it now!

All my friends (and future ones as well), let’s sabotage the night parties at festivals where is social during the day.

For example, I’m going to Šibenik, Berlin marathon and Heidelberg marathon in next few months…

In Šibenik, I purchased parties, but I will try not to attend them. I will start with lunch, swimming and then I will be available at the hot spot. After the hotspot, I will go again into the water or take a shower and have dinner. After dinner, some fun and I will go to sleep soon. In the morning I will get up at half-past six, eat a little bit and attend an end of the night party which will be already outside. And repeat.

At the following marathons, I will come early, be there the whole day, not leave after dinner (to sleep as many people usually do to be able to dance during the night), and will go before midnight to sleep normally. I will dance the same amount of hours as others, but without salsa lag, with more space and with the slower songs (as is usual during the day).

My friend Anne (hi!) already does that. My girlfriend Lenka (hi!) began that during the last Prague’s marathon and she was more than happy! Other friends promised me they would do that with us as well.

Will you join us?

I have mostly girls onboard. We need some men as well. :-)

Let’s prove it’s possible!

If it goes well, I will try harder to convince someone to prepare the salsa event as we like it. It would be great if you would do that with me as well, but with organizers around you.

Or, hell, I will do a social weekend myself!

In fact, if I have to decide between weekend afternoon or night parties, I prefer 99% of times the afternoon. And I find myself very lucky, 'cause in my city, Seville, thanks to BailaSevilla and "Ernesto from Studio360", there're a lot of afternoon parties :D Nice! Probably I should visit Seville. :-) I definitely join you! I was in Paris this year and I enjoyed the afternoon socials much more than the parties. My choice of salsa events I take part in is based increasingly on whether there is the possibility to dance during the day. For the same reason a friend and I decided to prepare a pure social weekend ourselves, the Hamburg Salsa Marathon😃 @Elena Great. :-) I'm not still sure about plans for that time but I think about coming. Do you do something special to make Hamburg marathon more afternoon social? :-) The very idea of a marathon encourages dancers to dance during the day (and of course at night, if their feet allow it😉). Like for all other marathons, we will provide the dancers with excellent music (have a look at our DJs at www.hamburgsalsamarathon.de) and a cosy atmosphere all day long, which creates the foundation for beautiful afternoon socials. Beyond that, the Hamburg Salsa Marathon takes place in December, that part of the year where most people don’t feel the need to go outside because it’s more cosy inside. And we will provide the dancers with very good food and snacks the whole day, so that there is no need to leave the marathon if people are hungry. All this aspects will hopefully lead to lovely afternoon socials... Good food, snacks the whole day and later dinner is very important. Perfect! :-)
