IMPORTANT INFORMATION: new venue and closure dates

SUNDAY CLASSES, NEW VENUE: Due to the definitive closure of the Man on the Moon, the SUNDAY CLASSES WILL MOVE to the Cambridge Workingmen's Club on East Road FROM SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 1ST. Larger dancefloor, 3 levels of classes, central location, free parking, low cost bar and a fantastic party atmosphere, we're coming back bigger and better in September for the best and friendliest Cuban salsa club in town!

SUMMER CLOSURE DATES: In order to prepare for the new formula, we are taking a break on the two last Sundays of August (CLOSED on Sunday August 18th and August 25th), but there might still be some rueda at the park on those dates, depending on Barbara's availability, the weather and popular demand. The last date at the Man on the Moon is therefore this Sunday August 11th, let's make it a big one to bid farewell to a venue which we will always remember as having been a legendary one.

THURSDAY CLASSES: The THURSDAYS at the Cambridge Workingmen's Club are all REMAINING OPEN in August. Two hours of classes, three levels, two DJs, fantastic atmosphere... The perfect balance between a good space for practice time and a great clubby feeling for the party. Not to be missed!

The new academic year will bring lots of new goodies with special courses, invited star teachers and live concerts: lots of fantastic projects in the pipeline, so stay tuned for more!

She offers a structured course which explores Cuban salsa dancing in a systematic way, building from traditional Orishas dances straight through to the more modern reggaeton moves, using each of the typical Cuban dances to illustrate movement principles which will add flavour and authenticity to your salsa dancing. Definitely not to be missed.
