Hi everyone

Hope you are all well and enjoying the Summer. It has been a while and I just wanted to get in touch.

For new people to the website… there are currently no classes at the club at Newbridge in Blackheath. We are having a break for the Summer while we look for a new venue(s). There are a couple of possibilities being explored at the moment. Please add your name to the mailing list if you wish to be kept in the loop.

In the meantime there are lunchtime fun salsa classes at the Town Hall (Public Hall) in Woolwich on Wednesdays and Fridays. Email me if you wish to join at info@salsamotion.co.uk.

Salsamotion also teach private lessons to individuals, couples, groups and events. Contact us for more details.

Finally a massive thank you to everyone that supported Hannah in her dance competition. She missed out on the final by just a few votes but was overwhelmed by all the support. Thank you so much.

Will be in touch.

Hello

Hi everyone

Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine. I’m sorry I haven’t messaged every week. Thank you to everyone who’s kept in touch and who’s been keeping on the look out for possible venues. We are all still trying to go out social dancing whenever possible. Inga is great at checking out places. Unfortunately she is not on the Facebook Group which is the easiest way to let people know and get a group chat going. It was great to see a few people at SoS a couple of weeks ago, and also at the charity event in Plumstead recently. I will try and send info on email whenever I can. For those of you that live or work in Woolwich or surrounding areas, I run lunchtime salsa classes on Wednesdays and Fridays. Email me if you are interested.

I would like to ask a favour: my daughter Hannah (some of you saw her dancing at the last Salsamotion night) was in a national competition called TeenStar – for pre-teens and Teens and got through to the semi final narrowly missing the final which will be on Sky TV, but has a chance to get through as a wildcard if she gets enough votes via text.. Text costs £1. Would you be kind enough to vote for her please? She needs a lot of votes to compete as she is solo but is competing with some groups dancers that have loads of family and people supporting them. Text Wildcard319 to 84222. Many thanks.

Ps. Really sorry if I already messaged you individually . She’s begged me to ask as many people as I can and I haven’t got a system ????

Hope you all have a wonderful bank holiday. Look forward to seeing you all at the next outing.

Social Evening out

Hi all

Hope you’re all well and enjoying the warmish weather :) . Sorry I haven’t sent an email recently but I haven’t forgotten about you all :) :). Thank you to everyone who has been in touch to tell me about possible venues and enquiring about when we are opening next. Thank you Inga for letting us know about social evenings and outings. Well talking about social evenings I have just been told about a charity event happening in Plumstead this Thursday. It is very short notice but a worthy cause. The details are below.

Thank You!

Hi everyone!!

A massive thank you to everyone that came out to dance, socialise, reminisce and hang out on Wednesday. It was such a wonderful evening and the atmosphere was just lovely – how I always remember Salsa Motion to be. Thank you to Richard for the music and the support as always and to everyone that came from far and bear – Ed and Bev. Thank you too for all the kind words, even those that nearly made me cry – never thought of myself as an inspiration! And all those lovely hugs too. And gorgeous flowers from Inga, lovely gift from Feargal and tons of encouraging words and cheers for Hannah for her brave performances for the evening. Thank you! Thank you!!

Like I said it is not the end of Salsa Motion. I will keep in touch for sure and will let you all know when there is a relaunch.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter and a nice break and rest and that you keep dancing in the meantime.

Be sure to let us know if you go out social dancing so we can get together.

I will upload some pictures of the night (taken by Hannah during Cool Down) on Facebook and will try and upload some past party photos I didn’t get a chance to share.

See you all soon.

Best Wishes

The last salsa session at Newbridge this Wednesday 5th April

Hi everyone

Sadly as you know it will be our last salsa session at Newbridge this Wednesday 5th April. I would like to thank everyone who has made it such a fun place to be on a Wednesday night for the past 5 years. I am going to miss the venue’s little quirks and you all but hope to relaunch before too long. I will keep you all posted. I also want to thank a few people who have really helped and supported me at Newbridge as it was difficult at times to run the club effectively and I would have been lost without them. Simon Mascarenhas who was with me from the very beginning with his fun classes, support and friendship. Richard who’s been a rock even when it has been difficult and has covered on lots of occasions when I have been away, running the whole club, playing music etc. Inga, for always helping to cover whenever she’s asked, Barbara who would also help with classes and everything about the club whether asked or not, from the very beginning when she took me to come and view the hall!! I hope you are feeling better and back to dancing soon. We have missed seeing you. Other helpers and friends also like Seka, Charmaine and Linda (who actually found and recommended Newbridge with Barbara). There was also Mark Swaby who used to Dj for me from the very beginning. My niece Chinenye who would sit at the door on party nights, Andrada who took pictures. I could go on… thank you so much to everyone. Sorry if I’ve missed anyone who’s worked behind the scene. I feel like I’m giving my Oscar speech :) ????????.

Anyway it will be lovely to see as many people as possible on Wednesday to bid a fond farewell or “a bientot”. We will dance and socialise till a bit later.

See you all then. I will keep in touch via emails and website but remember to join our Facebook group to ensure that you will continue to get messages and notifications, especially if we go out social dancing. And for anyone that lives around Woolwich or works in the area I teach lunchtime salsa classes on Wednesdays and Fridays at the Town Hall.
