Tuesday Salsa After Work

Salsa After Work at Carmen's Cuban Cafe

Stressed after work? Wanting to meet new people? Not in a mood to cook? Join us for a different type of party to relax. Salsa After Work Tuesday has a chill environment with no cliques or fashion shows. Come with comfortable attire or whatever you have on. Enjoy a delicious Cuban meal if you feel like dinner out, and dance the night away so you can be relaxed the next morning for work.

Pre-Dance Dinner Options

At Carmen’s you can dine with friends before 7 pm or just grab a quick bite from the restaurant. Also there is a Happy Hour that you can enjoy and be completely relaxed for the class and party.


At 7 pm we start working off those Cuban calories with hour-long Raw Beginners and Advanced Beginners salsa/mambo classes. This classes will cover all the fundamentals for salsa, mambo and cha-cha dancing, including leading and following techniques, timing, Cuban motion, spinning techniques, partner connection, etc.
