Salsa & Salsa Workshop #1 for 2015/16!

What a wonderful workshop today!

We had a great group of teacher candidates and other students, gorgeous weather, an exciting and accessible Salsa Rueda class taught by Diana and Jonas (from the UBC Rueda Club), and a lot of fun making fresh salsa with ingredients from the garden. Delicious lunch too! We learned that salsa (the dance, the sauce and the recipe) are all spicy mixtures of many cultural influences (Aztec, Afro-Caribbean, plus new ingredients) that create many tasty variations on the original saucy blend.

Looking forward to our upcoming workshops in this year's series.

I mostly got photos of Diana and Jonas demonstrating --
because the rest of the time, I was busy dancing!
