With spring suddenly springing around us, the fields of crocus popping up and the sun showing itself from time to time, those of you who have hibernated from salsa, now is the time to come out to play.

It is similar on the dance floor as many of the brand new beginners in January are now popping up on the social scene and are putting smiles on their teacher’s faces as the spin to the tunes from the DJ booths. If you are a seasoned dancer, remember what you felt like at your first socials - and then make sure new dancers are made as welcome as you were.

I'm sure all your teachers have instilled the essence of welcome, so leaders ask the followers, followers ask the leaders and only say no if you are truly tired. Put a smile on a face this weekend and ask someone who you have never danced with. Personally I am always flattered and honoured when I'm asked for a dance.


For Friday night, new to Tooting Bec, the salsa/bachata/kizomba SBK party featuring lessons, shows and DJs Hughie and the Chemist.

Lessons for all levels in salsa and bachata are followed by a social in Putney,
