Despite what the weather does this weekend, you can bet your Bachata things will be caliente in the Creamery District. Humboldt's first ever Latin Dance Festival gets underway April 27-29 at Redwood Raks World Dance Studio. Brought to you by Humboldt Latin Dance Collective, the festival offers a variety of workshops in salsa, Bachata, Zouk and Cuban dances taught by some of the San Francisco Bay Area's finest Latin dance instructors, plus pros from Sacramento and local experts, too.
The event kicks off Friday, April 27 with a "meet and greet the pros" dance party featuring music by DJs Pachanguero and EastOne starting at 7 p.m. ($7). Then on Saturday, April 28, choose from a number of beginning and intermediate workshops and then click up your heels later at the two-room DJ dance party at 8 p.m. ($10). Sunday, April 29 offers more workshops with the pros. And throughout the festival, you'll have a chance to fuel yourself with drinks and food on site and local vendor wares.
Pick up an all-access pass online for $100 (or $105 at the door) to get into all the regular workshops and parties, a Saturday-only pass for $60 that includes workshops and party or pay $12 to drop-in on any of the workshops.
