Dancing For Stefan!

On 21st December 2017, the West Midlands Salsa scene sadly lost a young man who managed to brighten everyone’s day whenever they were in his presence. Stefan Morgan is now dancing with the angels after battling health issues from the age of 14 when he was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease. This young man had a promising career in Football, playing with the Birmingham City Youth team until his health dictated otherwise, ending his dreams in football. Stefan, however, had other ideas and did’t allow his health to dictate what he could and could not do. He danced, he sang, he practiced Kung Fu and lived life to its fullest, wearing his unique, cheeky smile!

He was a popular individual on the dance scene and after attending the funeral, hearing tributes from others, this young man definitely inspired many! It is because of these reasons why a few local promoters have been discussing ways in which we could show our appreciation to this young man and what he brought to our world.

Money Raised

At the event held on Saturday 24th March 2018, we managed to raise £3479.06, which was donated on 1st April to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Kidney Patients' Association! I also created a just Giving Page which also raised an additional £306 bringing the total to £3806! This is an amazing result for us on the dance scene here in Birmingham & Smooth Salsa would like to thank everyone for their support throughout the event.

Smooth Salsa Party Saturday 1st December 2018

Next Smooth Salsa Party Saturday 1st December 2018

With Guest teacher Rasa Pauzaite teaching a Bachata class!

We coming to the end of yet another year at Aston University and so for our end of year party I have decided to give it a theme. The theme for this final party is “Gatsby“ which is associated with the 1920’s, so plenty of time to seek out an outfit.

I have also invited guest teacher Rasa Pauzaite to teach a Bachata class for us on the night, so that means there won’t be any Salsa classes but we will still have an open level Kizomba class with Annette and Tony Tee.

After the classes we’ll go straight into the party, dancing until 4am, with 2 rooms of music, Salsa and Kizomba. We will also incorporate more Bachata into the night in the Salsa room so I may get the opportunity to practice my new moves.

Class start at 9.15pm
