Transport yourself to the Caribbean with this virtual salsa dance party. Learn local moves from local experts without ever leaving your house. I’ll show you how to party like you’re in Puerto Rico step-by-step, island drinks and all. It all starts with the drinks (and the liquid courage they provide). You bring the booze, and I’ll teach you how to make tropical cocktails with ingredients you have in your own home. After sharing a toast and getting to know each other, we’ll go over the basics of “Salsa de Calle” and other Caribbean dance styles for both singles and couples. “Salsa de Calle,” or street salsa, is a more casual style of dance that emphasizes just feeling the music, not technical counts or postures. Once you master these fluid and flexible steps, I’ll turn on some classic salsa music and we’ll dance the night away. Salud and cheers to a night of fun and new friendships!
Hello, my name is Angelina, and I’m a Latina dancer, singer, and actress with a degree in Musical Theatre from Northwestern University. As a musician and performer with years of experience, I’ve released two albums, racked up songwriting credits for film and TV, published my own music web series, "¡GLOBAILE!", and written and starred in a one-woman musical comedy "Sorta Rican" that’s toured throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Since moving to my motherland of Puerto Rico, I’ve shared my passion for music with travelers, teaching salsa dancing classes at several hotels, weddings, events, and, of course, here on Airbnb. I’m a regular "Salsera" on the Puerto Rican dance scene, and I’m thrilled to share my knowledge, skills, inside tips, and love of the culture with you!
Daiquiri ingredients: rum, lime, sugar (optional: fruit of your choice)
Wear footwear you can dance in. Barefoot is cool and socks are okay, but be careful not to slip.
Make sure you have enough room to dance—we'll be moving and spinning around the space
"If there's one thing that Puerto Ricans are known for worldwide, it's our music! And for us, salsa is more than a dance step—it's a way of life. We dance while we clean, while we cook, and while we hang out with family and friends. So join our house party from your own house and immerse yourself in our culture of rhythm!"
