The main selling point looks good: short, punchy classes (half an hour at each level) which just teach a couple of moves in plenty of depth, with 15 minutes free dancing between the classes to practice. Stevie's promoting this as 'a new concept for salsa': in my opinion it's how all drop-in salsa classes should be run. One reason I enjoyed Andy's Sunday nights at the Wharf was that the classes were short so they only included a small number of moves.

I enjoyed the free dancing. My Cuban dancing is pretty limited, but it's OK by Cardiff standards and went down pretty well. There was a bit too much reggaeton too early on for me - though a lot of people seemed to be enjoying it, and Moe's funky lineups were cool. All in all a good turnout, and I had the best time I've had out dancing for a while, despite having to leave by 11. Looking forward to the next one.
I won't make dancing the rest of this week or the weekend as I'm working in Liverpool. Sunny at the moment but the forecast is terrible.

Unfortunately Risa isn't back (yet) - there's a problem with the electrics so it hasn't opened yet. So last night the only comfortable person was Stefanja, who seems to find anything below about 30 Celsius cold. Here she is dancing with Shahid.
Actually I'm going to miss Jumpin' Jaks because those spotlights provide great rim light for taking pictures - if we're still there next week I might take my big camera along.
