Salsa 2022

Have you been tapping along to the tunes on Strictly Come Dancing?

Is Cuban Fury your favourite feel-good film?

Are you looking for a great way to meet new people & keep fit?

If so, this Educafe fundraiser will be right up your street.

We welcome you to the new Waterside Centre:

Waterside Youth & Community Centre
31 Northbrook Street
Newbury
RG14 1DS

Doors will open at 6:30pm for you to come in & grab a drink and some food ( if you would like some)

At 7pm there will be an absolute beginners salsa class with Joe Sharp. Joe teaches with SalsaSquad based in Gloucester. He’s a firm favourite among beginners for his sense of humour & fantastic lead, and will get you doing the basic steps in no time. Salsa is an amalgamation of Cuban dances such as mambo, pachanga & rumba as well as American dances such as swing & tap. A really fun partner dance with plenty of room for flair.

There will be a quick break to grab another drink at 7:45.

At 8pm there will be a choice of two classes:

If you’re new to salsa, there will be a fun beginners Rueda class with Cedric Sureshkumar. Cedric stumbled across salsa at uni. Having attended workshops & congresses across the UK & beyond, he has learnt from some of the best & teaches at YoSalsa in Yeovil. Rueda is a form of cuban salsa danced in a circle. It’s a very social dance with partners swapping around the circle and different moves shouted out by the “caller”.

If you’re more of a seasoned dancer with at least a few months of experience under your belt, Eddie Hunt will be doing an improver/intermediate salsa class. Eddie was introduced to salsa in 2003 by a friend and has travelled far & wide for lessons from some amazing global teachers. He teaches in Bristol, Clevedon & Cardiff with followers impressed by his strong lead & complex moves.

Another drink break from 8:45, and then from 9pm until midnight there will be time for social dancing to tunes played by Cedric & Eddie who both DJ across the UK. No doubt they will keep you on the dance floor for hours.

More information on food options & additional fundraising opportunities to be released nearer the time!

    THE HONESTY COOKERY SCHOOL

    The Honesty Cookery School was established in 2014 and since then has welcomed many cooking enthusiasts through its doors. It offers an extensive choice of courses covering most international cuisines, bread baking, cake making, pickling and preserving, cake decorating, fish and butchery.

    As well as cookery courses the school also hosts craft classes, painting, creative writing, flower arranging and very popular Christmas wreath courses. Our tutors come from a variety of backgrounds but are all united in their passion for teaching people how to cook in a relaxed, uncompetitive manner.

    The cookery classes usually run from the morning until the early afternoon. Most courses involve lunch and there is always something to take home to enjoy.

    The courses are designed so that they appeal to most levels of experience in the kitchen. The class sizes are kept small so that the lessons are very much hands on. People learn more effectively when they are actually doing the cooking. The school is situated in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, with unspoilt views across fields and the North Hampshire Downs.
