Summer Salsa in the Park, with dance instructions given by Yaya Rodriguez and music provided by DJ Franklin Condori; hosted by the City of Beverly (MA) during Summer 2022.

BEVERLY, Mass. - Amzeal -- This summer, the City of Beverly will be hosting two separate "Summer Salsa in the Park" events in Lynch Park, on Wednesday, July 13, and Wednesday, Aug 24, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. These two free outdoor events are where participants can learn the basics of salsa, or practice their moves.

The evening starts with an hour of instruction given by Yaya Rodriguez, founder of the Cultura Latina Dance Academy in Lynn. Then on to social dancing to Latin tunes provided by DJ Franklin Condori. Participants are encouraged to come on their own or with a partner. No experience necessary.

"Social dancing is everywhere in Latin American countries -- it's such a wonderful part of the culture where music and dancing just happens no matter where you are," says Katherine Shao, organizer of the event. Shao, who is a musician, had the idea to create a similar type of vibe on the North Shore, and applied for support from the Beverly Cultural Council to make it possible. "In the Boston area one can find a variety of wonderful dance socials for salsa, bachata, tango and other Latin specialties. We just thought it would be wonderful to have something like that, but right on the ocean -- imagine!"
