    This November Ahora Si! is proud to host what should be one of the most exciting weekends of dance Jozi has ever witnessed. Given the success of our Underground Mambo parties, our Year End Ball events as well as our Durban Weekenders, we thought long and hard about what what else we could do to top those and offer something even more compelling to our beloved salsa community of Jozi and beyond. And that's how the idea of the Ahora Si! Salsa Weekend came about!

    From Paris we've invited Leon Rose and Vanessa Diaz, two instructors of the highest order, to come to our shores to share their knowledge through a number of workshops and performances, and to join us for not one, but two, fantastic dance socials. Born and raised in Britain, but now resident in Paris, Leon has over 20 years of experience as a salsa dancer and choreographer, and has taught and performed at salsa festivals all over Europe and the US. You can look forward to 5 hours of absolutely top-class workshops over two days provided by him and the incredibly talented Vanessa Diaz.

    On Friday, 17 November we kick off the weekend with a Pre-Party at the new Hashtag Kitchen and Bar in Craighall Park from 20:30 where we'll get to meet our guest instructors and show them a warm African welcome on the dance floor.

    On Saturday, 18 November you can look forward to the following workshops offered by Leon and Vanessa at Market Square in Newtown:

  • 11:00 to 12:00: Men's shines with Leon; Ladies' styling and shines with Vanessa
  • 12:15 to 13:15: Partnerwork pattern on1 with Leon and Vanessa
  • 14:30 to 15:30: Partnerwork pattern on2 with Leon and Vanessa

    On the evening of Saturday, 18 November you will be be treated to the third annual Ahora Si Year Ball, the weekend's marquee event, at the Country Club of Johannesburg in Auckland. Come dressed to party in your very finest suits and frocks, and expect to be blown away by some stunning performances by Leon and Vanessa, as well as some surprise home-grown talent.

    On Sunday, 19 November we close off the weekend's proceedings with two more hours of workshops by Leon and Vanessa at Market Square in Newtown:

  • 11:00 to 12:00: Funky Cha-Cha with Leon and Vanessa
  • 12:15 to 13:15: Bachata with Leon and Vanessa
