Hi guys, we really hope youíre all well despite all that is going on today regarding the Corona Virus and the severity itís having on us globally. I just find our current situation surreal and so far, I have dealt with it the best way I can, staying calm and being positive. I have been keeping up-to-date with current affairs revolving around Covid-19 in-order to ensure that we stayed within Government guidelines.
Iím aware that many promoters made a conscious decision to cancel classes and events locally and some chose to continue as normal. Unfortunately, those that chose to continue have received a lot of negative criticism, publicly, from individuals demanding they follow suite. I hate bullying tactics and I donít want anyone trying to force their opinions on me, I will however listen, take all the facts into consideration and make my own informed decision.
Despite all the crap being thrown around on Social media I had decided to continue running the classes if you, our customers, wanted them. I am aware from attendance, comments on Facebook, that some had made the choice to put Salsa on hold, ensuring that the risk to you and your families/loved ones was minimalized. I completely understand and respect the decision people had made, I simply chose to give people the option to continue classes if they wanted them.
Due to new recommendations from the Government today (Monday 16th March) I have now decided to cancel classes until further notice. For those that donít know yet, the Government has advised ďEveryone should avoid gatherings and crowded places, such as pubs, clubs and theatresĒ.
I am really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to you, just be safe and hopefully we will be back in the swing of things soon!
Providing classes at the beginning of the night & partying hard until 1.30am, playing the best in Salsa with a sprinkle of Bachata.
The function room in Beeches Road Club is a very a nice room indeed & is equipped with air conditioning too, if required.
The venue does have its own car park with limited spaces but also has the advantage of plenty of on-street parking right outside the club. Accessibility is fairly straight forward too, from the M6 junction 10 itís under a 10 minute drive!
From the M6 for simplicity, I would advise driving down the Wolverhampton Road (A454) which turns into the A4148 for 1 mile then take a left turning onto Stafford Street. If you pass Walsall College on the Wolverhampton Road then you have missed the left turning onto Stafford Street. Once on Stafford Street which then becomes Bloxwich Road, follow it for a further 1 mile & you will find Beeches Road on your left along with the club. The club canít be missed as it has a large decorative graffiti on the facing wall when entering from Bloxwich Road. It also has signs too with the club name dotted around.
With this venue we are happy to say that weíre able to run the night until 1.30am! The bar however may close at 12am depending on usage.
So come check us out Saturday 15th February 2020.
The rest of the night is for dancing so don't waste it come early
Limited on site spaces but also has the advantage of plenty of on-street parking right outside the club
Party till 1.30am
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.
