Hello Everyne,
I'm looking for a salsa (LA, portorico) partner (female, 20-40, ENG or FRA speaking), not for dancing in clubs and parties only, but for practicing, training new figures, tricks...on permanent bases. I used to do this 4-5 times per week in last year, but after moving to SUI (Riviera area: all the way from Lausanne to Montreux; moving to Lausanne March/April) I want to find a new friend (not a girlfriend), willing to work on technique, lead, to master figures...and then fun of cource :-). I like "destroying" the dance floor while dancing. My favorite song: Los Van Van, Tim Pop con Birdland.

I'll be grateful for any contact or info. So if you know someone or you know someone who knows someone and that someone knows......

Well, now I realize,..are that any places along the Geneva lake where you can possibly go dance 4x/week?

Thanks

Lad


HI THERE!

How is Salsa dancing in Lausanne? I just moved to Lausanne a while ago and I would love to find a good place to go Salsa dancing. Maybe by now you know some good places...that you could recommend. Also I am looking for a dance partner to practise or do a course ( male, not a boyfriend or affair) but only once, maybe twice a week. I have done some Salsa dancing in Mexico intensively during 2 months.. I have forgotten a lot of figures., but I learn quickely. Is there anybody in Lausanne ( English, French, Spanish or Swiss- German Speaking, between 28 and 40) who is looking for a female dancepartner?? Then let me know!
Vamos a bailar Salsa!

Re: [Lausanne] Looking for salsa female partner

Hi Salsa Lover, I too have done courses in Salsa, love to dance generally and usually the first one up on the floor. Could you let me know the best place to go in and around Zurich, presuming you have tested them yourself.....

It's a fab way of keeping fit, but men who dance and like to dance are hard to find...

Thanks in advance,
Gwen

I have been asked many times, so I'll just repost my asnwer this here.

And here in Zurich there are plenty of men on the dancing parties and many of them are very good indeed, so I'm pretty sure you'll find what you like.

Otherwise If you want me to show you some places, feel free to ask.

Quote:
here in Zurich you can go to a latin party everyday of the week.

There are many venues and after you have visited them you'll surely find one that suits your style and what you are searching for.

Basically here you will find.

* Latin places, frequented by latin people.
* Cuban Style dance places frequented by latins and europeans.
* Puertorican/NY style places frequented mostly by europeans.

The reason is simply that the Puertorican/NY style teached here is a mix of latin dances with ballroom and hustle and swing dances in NY, it is very stylized and far from our latin roots, so the latins don't like it that much.

Places where you can go dancing,
  • On Mondays and Fridays you have party at the school Salsa Rica at the Maagareal, this is a big PR/NY style school, with a big dance floor, stylized and "not-too-latin". ( http://www.salsarica.ch/ ) 10.- Mo / 15.- Fr.
  • On Wednesdays you have the party at the "Sugar Lounge" ( www.sugarlounge.ch ), this is a great party Cuban Style, superb ambiance, but small and you can't dance there without bumping and stepping on the others, they have lessons from 8-10pm. from 10pm on party is on and it is full. free entrance
  • On Saturdays you have the Havana Noche party, pure Cuban at the "Bohemia" (http://www.bohemia.ch/ ), excellent music and ambiance but also even smaller than the Sugar Lounge . free entrance, now also the fambar at the militarstrasse and also on Thu,Fri, even smaller than bohemia and packed.
  • On saturdays you have also a party at the new local of a school called "Salsa Power", they say they are the biggest school in Switzerland ( www.salsapower.ch ) also very PR/NY stylized non-latin Salsa school.
  • On Tuesdays at "Le Bal", at the BeethovenStr www.lebal.ch ( this is mostly a PR/NY place ) 7.-
  • On Thursdays at "X-tra" this is the best party of the week and full of people of all styles, you have also a second dance floor only for Merengue/Bachata. ( www.x-tra.ch ) 15.-
  • Sundays at "Kaufleuten" this is also a great party, all styles together. ( www.kaufleuten.ch ) 10.-
  • On weekends you have the Latin Palace and the fambar at the Militärstrasse, near the Kaserne. The fambar is a Cuban bar. The 3 cuban bartenders that worked at Bohemia, got together and opened this bar. It is also small but the ambiance is pure Cuban, Fr. Sat. Jut to the side is the Latin Palace, a mostly Dominican discotheq, some salsa, but mostly reggeton, merengue and bachata.
  • Many other latin bars around the Langstrasse region.
Now... to learn without a teacher...

If you are a girl and come dressed sexy, there will be many boys keen to teach you some steps .

If you are a boy, then you have to learn before, because it is the man who leads and improvises the dance routine and then he creates the whole dancing experience.

If the girl is learning with and advanced male dancer it is then easy for her to learn to follow and for the man to teach her how to follow.

If the boy is learning with an advanced dancer woman, then it won't be easy not fun. And most advanced ladies don't know the part the man does, so they can't really explain you.


But it also depends where you go.

x-tra and kaufleuten are the best places IMO, but people mostly go there to meet the other dancers and dance.

salsarica and salsapower is full of students from the schools and they go there to practice , so maybe this is a more "academic" place to learn. but they know each other from the school so you'd have to make a little effort to enter the cliques.

In Sugar Lounge on Wednesdays, they have salsa dance courses from 8 to 10pm.

it starts before the party 8:00 from to 10:00 so there you can maybe learn easily. whoever when the party starts it would be difficult to practice as it gets fully crowded from 11 to 1am.

Just a little last note.

There are mainly two approaches to the latin dances that I see here.

Our latin approach, that is, we go to dance to socialize and have a good time, to meet people, for the boys to get in contact with the girls ( and viceversa ) to have fun. Our dance style is more sensual an also more rythmic.

The less-latin approach, is that they go to dance, for a hobby or a kind of sports activity, their main focus is on practicing the steps turns they learned at the school and their style of dance is more focused on the showy/flashy side of the dance.

And many shadows in between.... you'll go to the different scenes and find the one that matches your style and expectations best
Hope all that helps.
