Wife - free to good salsa dancer

Not sure which thread this belongs in, but basically.....

My wife (Swiss, 39) would like to go salsa dancing and I (English, two left feet) wouldn't even think of it, but I would like to encourage her to go.

So, if anybody in the Zurich area knows of a friendly salsa dancing club/evening etc and goes regularly please get in touch with me. She is a good dancer and even speaks very good Spanish...

A few years ago she did try the regular joints but if you go on your own you end up watching and waiting or getting picked up by some sad old geezer. Not much fun, and hence this appeal for friendly salsa dancing types...

I'm not jealous by the way, so persons of either persuasion may apply :-)

Any suggestions? Luzern would also work....

The move to this sub-forum may seem a bit weird but it is where the other folk looking for salsa partners are, so you might as well put your wife there too.

Re: Wife - free to good salsa dancer

plenty of places to go pretty much every night of week in zurich..

I guess us guys are more fortunate, as there are less of us and easier to get a dance. Most places I frequent, guys ( and not old geezers either ) dance with diff partners all the time ( generally one dance and move on )... not sure which places you are referring too, but I haven't noticed that behaviour...

Well, it was a few years ago, maybe times have changed. Any particularly friendly places you would recommend?

Re: Wife - free to good salsa dancer

Monday's - Salsa Rica - relaxed, not competitive - the pros stay at home usually.. as a matter of fact there are about 5-6 of going next Monday night.

but better still, change 1 left foot, and get on the dance floor, so you can keep the Mrs company :-) .. see pm
