BAILANDO AUGUST EDITION 

This August is Bailando’s 6th month anniversary! It’s hard to believe that half a year has passed already =).

We have two great activities for you this month, plus an extended party until 9 PM.

1) SPECIAL SEMBA WORKSHOP (3:00 - 4:15)

David Espinosa from Amigos do Semba (Toronto) will provide an intro to semba workshop from 3:00 to 4:15.  Are you crazy about Kizomba? If so, don’t miss this special workshop on semba, an angolan dance that kizomba was derived from.  What's more is that David will be partnering with Ottawa’s own, Lindsay Dance for the workshop!  (Cost of the workshop and social $20)

2) BAILANDO DANCE OFF - This is your chance to shine!

This is a chance for Ottawa's best/most daring to share your individual style with the Ottawa dance community.  Everyone is a winner and there are no formal judges.  All participants receive free entry to the social. 

How it works:  

- The dance off will take place at 8 PM sharp during the salsa social 
- Each participant (or pair) will perform a 30 second chereo/improv. 
- Time permitting, we can have a second round of battles for those who want to keep going.  
- Incorporating other genres outside of salsa is permitted and encouraged (but your overall performance should still have a salsa flavour).

How to participate:  Send a private message to Bailando Ottawa by Tuesday, Aug 4 to confirm your spot.

Note:  The song will be published on Thursday at noon (it will be a salsa dura piece); The order of performers will be determined the day of Bailando.

**Dance off participants attend the Bailando social free.  Performers who attend the semba workshop pay $14
