Smooth Salsa has now started classes and a party night in Wolverhampton in Collaboration with Carol Nedwick of Salsa - Versity. It was an honour to have been asked to join the already well established Salsa scene in Wolverhampton, to help promote Salsa across the Midlands.
The venue for the classes and party night is Jones Road Working Mens Club. The monthly party in June will be held on Saturday 15th June rather than our usual 3rd Friday of the month as a one off.
There will be no Salsa classes this month but I will be playing the best in Salsa rhythms as the new Resident Teacher and DJ, catering for all your musical delights.
Smooth Salsa and Salsa-Versity will be combining to provide you with a great night of dancing, music and fun line ups for your party night pleasures.
So come and join us on this new venture.
£8 all night
On site and street parking available.
Easy access from M6 and M54 taking you down the Stafford road.
Jones Working Mens Club can be found on Jones Road which is opposite KFC and Mac Donaldís on Stafford Road
After the success of our launch party at The Coach House we're proud to annmounce another party date for you to put in your diaries! We're back at the Coach House on Saturday 22nd June 2019!
Teaming up with Muchasalsa we have come together to bring you yet another top night of Salsa, with sprinkles of Bachata, Kizomba and Cha Cha. This night is taking place in the heart of Moseley within the newly renovated Coach House Bar and Restaurant.
The Coach House is a listed building and a spectacular one at that, itís actually an 18th century coach house which has been modernised to the highest of standards. Come take a look and see for yourselves, it is truly remarkable.
The first event planned at the Coach House was held on Friday 10th May 2019, with DJís Potty and Mani, now due to it's success we are proud to announce more to come!
The night will start with classes at 8.30pm - 9.30pm with the party starting immediately after, partying until 1am!
The cost of this evening is £8, so come and join us for our launch night at the Coach House, which is can be found at 23A St Maryís Row, Moseley, Birmingham. B13 8HW.
Hope to see you guys there!
£8 all night
Lesson by Michael Pottinger &co. 8.30pm sharp! The rest of the night is for dancing so don't waste it come early
The Coach House can be found on St Mary's Row & is easily accessible from Birmingham city centre via A435 (Alcester Road) and on street parking is available close by.
After the success of the Smooth Salsa party on Friday 31st May 2019, Smooth Salsa has secured more dates at Bournbrook. As far as I could see, everyone who attended seemed happy, which made me feel happy & the venue was extremely happy with the results of the whole night!
I also received numerous compliments about the music on the night which is amazing & the aim is to keep this momentum going. If you come to a Smooth Salsa party we aim to please with the music which will entice you to hit the floor!
We'll be continuing with the same trend with no classes, just pure dancing, playing the best in Salsa.
Again, the parties will only run until 12.30am, starting at 7.30pm, so get there early.
This event is a one room event, without the addition of a Kizomba Romm.
Recently, I asked the Salsa community for its opinion via Facebook, regarding Salsa nights starting earlier without classes, which also finished earlier too with the focus just on dancing. The response I received was positive and great, so thank you all for your feedback. The questions were asked because Bournbrook and Selly Oak Social Club are willing to allow the parties to run but with certain conditions.
The parties will only run until 12.30am instead of 1am, I was told that we can start earlier though so thatís a plus.
Another major concern was people bringing their own drinks into the venue. This was the biggest concern which definitely was the main contributor to the parties coming to a halt. Due to this problem the venue has advised that all bags are checked on arrival and that no drinks are to be brought in from outside.
Some may be concerned with their bags being checked but unfortunately, this will have to be a necessity. Please donít assume that bag checking is that bad because we wonít ask you to empty your contents onto a table. Most, if not all clubs in London check bags for drinks now and usually all they do is feel the contents of the bag from the outside, if they feel an item which resembles a bottle you will be asked to take it out and show it.
Anyone caught inside with their own drinks will be asked to leave the premises.
Remember folks, please don't bring your own drinks to the Smooth Salsa parties at Bournbrook & Selly Oak Social Club as we will have to confiscate any drinks on entry until the end of the night. I have arranged to give every paying customer a £2 drink token which you will be able to use as a contribution to any drink of your choice. No change will be given for purchases under £2 whilst using the token so spend wisely. Thanks in advance for your understanding & support with this matter
For those that are looking for a little extra tuition before the Smooth Salsa party, we run our weekly Saturday afternoon Salsa classes at the Doug Ellis Leisure centre between 1pm and 3pm.
On 21st December 2017, the West Midlands Salsa scene sadly lost a young man who managed to brighten everyoneís 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 didít 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.
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 and Smooth Salsa would like to thank everyone for their support throughout the event.
