Hi Incognito Members
Welcome to our September Newsletter from the Incognito Dance family.
INCOGNITO LATEST NEWS
Thank you to everyone who joined us on our latest parties and courses throughout July & Aug. Huge thanks also to Emrah Liman & Shenel, SuperMario, Dean David, Shelley & Gil, Pexava, Mawu Lisa Group, Eva Marunova, Alyssa Salazar, Marosh & Kristina, Basil and Melissa (Dance2salsa) and Paul Marcel for the classes and shows.
We want to give big congratulations and a huge kiss to Luke and Amal who got married in August. It was an honour to be invited to their gorgeous and intimate wedding. Luke and Amal met during one of our classes and hit if off straight away. A beautiful couple who deserve a beautiful life. They are currently off on their honeymoon. You will see them back at Hammersmith Salsa Club soon.
I did not think I would be saying this, but it was an incredibly hot summer and things just got hotter at all our clubs, it was a wonderful surprise to see so many dancers keep turning up every week despite the scorching temperatures. We received some lovely feedback, especially many emails and texts saying how much weight people had lost by just dancing the nights away. Many of the nights resembled the hot steamy scenes of the Dirty Dancing' Salsa Shack.
Whether you are an absolute beginner or a hard core SalsaGeek, there is something here for you. Dancing is an excellent way to stay fit and healthy whilst learning a life changing skill, also a great natural way to meet new friends or partners. Beginners are always warmly welcomed and encouraged to enjoy dance. Experienced dancers are given fun, technically challenging classes, and plenty of hours to social dance to the latest Latin music by our famous and award winning DJ's.
You are in safe hands with Incognito Dance, we have guests,teachers and performers who have competed and won numerous World and European Championships over the last 12 years.
