New Dates to be announced

Dance Class 9-10 pm and Dance Party 10 pm -1 am

Get ready to salsa the night away at Hippvanna! With DJ Elio Piedra providing the beats, it’s sure to be a lively and exhilarating night on the dance floor. Before the party begins, Marta and Salil from the Gainesville Bachata community will teach a bachata class, a partner dance originating in the Dominican Republic. Learn some steps and moves that you can use during the night and at any Latin party! The dance class from 9-10 pm is the perfect opportunity. And don’t worry, it’s just a $5 fee to participate in the class.

Once the dance floor officially opens at 10 pm, the real fun begins, and you can dance the night away until 1 am. It’s an excellent chance to let loose, enjoy yourself, and meet other dance enthusiasts who share your passion for salsa.

Remember to wear comfortable dancing shoes and bring your best energy to make the most of this exciting event. Have a fantastic time at Hippvanna and enjoy the rhythmic night of salsa dancing!
