Monthly parties are held on the first Saturday of each month and at these parties we tend to include lessons in Salsa, Kizomba, Bachata and Tango Fusion!
Our parties have been growing steadily each month putting Smooth Salsa and Aston University on the Salsa map. We are now considered as holding the best party in Birmingham due to the friendly environment we have, our venue, our classes, the music we play along with the volumes of people that attend.
We are asked frequently by our attendees whether we would consider holding the parties fortnightly and some even would like us to consider doing a weekly event. At the moment we are going to continue with our monthly party structure as this seems to be working for us.
I still have fond memories of when the Smooth Salsa parties were held at The Irish Centre in Digbeth a few years ago. We averaged 80 people back then but now things have changed and with sheer perseverance we now average over 450 guests.
