Once again Peridot over-exceeded our expectations in terms of ambiance, service, space and turnout this past Friday at our last outing. We had the biggest turnout in some time with almost 350 people. Because of Mother’s Day weekend, we couldn’t start the lesson until later and were only supposed to do one lesson upstairs but when we arrived there was space in the back area and thankfully Alfred and Nina arrived early and were game to teaching a last minute bachata workshop for beginners downstairs so that Evan and I could concentrate on the intermediate dancers upstairs.
As usual the workshop were very busy but everyone ended up getting the fun and sexy combinations. At 10:30pm DJ Duck began spinning the tunes and made sure to include lots of bachata songs so that everyone could practice their new routines.
It was also the birthday of Karina and Kamil (two of Toronto Dance Salsa’s most seniour helpers)and we had a joint birthday dance for them at midnight. Thanks to both of them for being great sports and everyone who participated!
It was great to see lots of beginner students out. If you haven’t gotten to an outing yet here are some upcoming outings that will be amazing!
