Class exceptionally closed on Sunday April 30th

As you know we almost never close, but this Sunday April 30th is a very rare exception: it is the Bank Holiday Sunday and Bamboleo is playing in London.

Because litterally everyone from the Cuban salsa scene will be at the concert, it was difficult to find a stand-in teacher. Besides, we deserve a holiday don't we... ;-)

See you again on Sunday May 7th, and all our Thursdays are open as usual! :-)

Big hugs from the Cambridge Cuban Salsa team xxxx :-)
