!!!!CANCELLED!!! SALSA RETREATS WITH LUCHO GIRALDES FROM ARGENTINA – 03 – 06 APRIL 2016

It is with regrets and sadness that Salsaria is cancelling the Salsa Intensive Workshops with Lucho Giraldes, who is very ill and has canceled all his Canadian Tours. We will work with him in the near future to make this a go! In the mean time, we wish him a quick recovery and to get well soon!! Those of you who have pre-paid will be contacted to have your refund. We will honor your free entrance to the Social on April 2nd. Sorry again for the inconveniences this may have caused!
