A hot night of salsa dancing in the Hipp Lower Level begins with a salsa dancing class taught by Bailecaliente GAINESVILLE at 8:45 p.m. for just $5 at the door.
At 9:45 p.m., DJ Elio Piedra brings the party when floor opens up for a night of spicy salsa dancing FREE and open to the public!
Food will be Latin Faire by Abuella’s (the same folks who run Flaco’s!), and will include vegan & meat empanadas as well as cuban sandwiches.
Elio is a DJ with live beats so people can move with the rhythm of his live percussion. Heat up the hippodrome with your salsa skills!
Elio began his percussion career in Cuba, studying at the National Conservatory of Music and performing in the most important regional musical festivals. He made his U.S. debut performing in Miami and moved to Gainesville shortly after. Now, Elio is a local piano and drums instructor as well as a performing musician.
