I think we are confusing Cuban style salsa dancing and the way most Latin American dance salsa. Casino is cross body lead dance style.

The "cumbia" step, kick and step back step in NOT Cuban style dancing. I have been to El Rancho several times over the years. And I have NEVER seen anyone dance Casino nor have they never put on any Cuban salsa music at this establishment.

I guess since I started the topic I should mention which venue is my favourite...
I love Teusdays at Babs. Wednesdays are pretty fun too. Usually on wednesdays the crowd is more toronto dance students and it's a great venue to better your moves! Alot of the regulars go there on Wednesdays too. I personally really like Teusdays mainly because of the music. I find it the best!
I truly do miss the crowd at Acrobats on fridays...Looks like we have to slowly switch to the Dovercourt house. I personally haven't been...
In the meantime, Sharon organizes pretty fun outtings which have kept me busy on the weekends!

Glad you guys liked this topic!

Babaluu's and Plaza flamingo are great places to go but my all time favourite is El Rancho. You can't go wrong with two floors. By the way Sara, love the hair.

I've never been to Babluu's on a Tuesday, but if you say the music is better, then I will give it a try!

You're welcome, Sara. By the way, allow me to add to the compliment. I liked the long black hair as well as your current hair style. I'm a sucker for great looking hair. I digress. Can't wait to see all the playas and the fine ladies on Friday night. Holla back at ya boy!

I now remember why I don't go out on Tuesday nights. After helping with classes for 3 hours on Tuesdays, I am BEAT!
I guess Wednesdays will have to suffice. Hope it was fun. I'll check it out when Tuesday classes are done for the semester!

My favorite dancing places...

El Rancho is the best location for Friday and Saturday, you get mixture of batchata, meregue and salsa, too bad it is too far. The Dover House has the best dance floor but too far, which leaves Acrobat the best dancing venue for Fri, I have not gone out to Acrobat in 2007, wonder how quiet it is now, last time i went it was pretty slow.

Why does acrobat sometime close on fri and the owner do not post on website status of salsa friday? Is it too much to ask for simple notice on website?
