"Summer Salsa By The Sea": held outdoors, by the ocean, in Beverly, MA
Summer Salsa By The Sea, with dance instructions given by Yaya Rodriguez and music provided by DJ Franklin Condori; hosted by the City of Beverly (MA) during Summer 2022.
By: Beverly (MA) Cultural Council
The evening starts with an hour of instruction given by Yaya Rodriguez, founder of the Cultura Latina Dance Academy in Lynn. Then on to social dancing to Latin tunes provided by DJ Franklin Condori. Participants are encouraged to come on their own or with a partner. No experience necessary.
"Social dancing is everywhere in Latin American countries -- it's such a wonderful part of the culture where music and dancing just happens no matter where you are," says Katherine Shao, organizer of the event. Shao, who is a musician, had the idea to create a similar type of vibe on the North Shore, and applied for support from the Beverly Cultural Council to make it possible. "In the Boston area one can find a variety of wonderful dance socials for salsa, bachata, tango and other Latin specialties. We just thought it would be wonderful to have something like that, but right on the ocean -- imagine!"
Participants are encouraged to bring their own water, non-alcoholic drinks, or picnic dinner. Dancing will take place both in the concert shell and on the lawn.
