We are very excited to collaborate for the first time with Baila Production from Montreal for a workshop and a show at Salsaria’s Masqu’oween. Baila Production is founded by Ilias Benz, the author and producer of the popular “10 Worst Salsa Dancers” video. (See video here: https://www.facebook.com/BailaProductions/videos/10154531146682471/hc_ref=ARQW8uxWK0yJEK9FLEXp7FaibwlCNQ0XvelYeXAU96wSLQEOIv-TsRdrl8HYP6hmhrk&pnref=story)

Ilias is known for his creative, entertaining choreography style and has choreographed many shows that put big smiles on the audience. In addition, Ilias produces numerous videos for online workshops. For more information about his school and Baila Production, be sure to visit http://www.bailaproductions.com

✪ 7:30 – 8:30PM: “Supercharge Your Cross Body Leads” Workshop for leads and followers at all level to be given by Ilias and Belinda of Baila Production from Montreal.

✪ DANCE MIXER @ 10PM: What is a Dance Mixer? It’s a concept introduced back in the days as a way to introduce everyone to everyone. We invite all leaders or followers to form a giant circle on the dance floor where each will be partnered up to dance (salsa, bachata, or chachacha). Up on calling “SWITCH”, the leaders or followers are asked to rotate by moving to the next dancer. It goes on for about 3 songs. During which time, hopefully, everyone would dance or be acquainted to everyone in the circle.

✪ 9-1:00AM: Social dancing to the music off vinyl records from DJ dVo & DJ Chris Feist.
