Chips Con Salsa #4

March 24 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join Emporia Spanish Speakers and Hispanics of Today and Tomorrow for an opportunity to learn about culture and of course, dance! Chips Con Salsa is an introduction to salsa dancing. This five-part series will be held on the third floor of the Lyon County History Center (Full list of class dates below). Instructors Rebeca Herrera & Deon Morrow will teach the basic salsa step, left and right turns, cross-body leads, and more. Don’t be intimidated! This is an amazing opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and get your body moving! For the grand finale, we will bring in a live band and put our newly learned skills to the test. It will be an unforgettable evening!

A portion of the proceeds from these classes will go to support lifting Hispanic voices and stories through the Lyon County Historical Center. We will provide complimentary chips and salsa thanks to Casa Ramos and the Emporia Chamber of Commerce. Participants are allowed to BYOB.

The cost to participate is $100 per couple. This fee covers all five classes. Space is limited to the first 20 couples.

We know that some of you may be interested, but don’t currently have a dance partner. Remember, this could be fun for two friends, not just romantic couples. If you still don’t have a willing partner, we will accept solo registrants for $50 and will match you with another solo registrant.
