Ritmo de la Noche is a big hit with the salsa dancers from Baltimore, MD and DC - this is clearly where salsa and bachata
dance aficionados will gather once a month to share their passion for dancing and appreciation for Latin rhythms and music.

It's a pajama party at this month's Ritmo de la Noche, so get yourself ready for bed. But before hitting the pillow, dance yourself into a state of bliss. Anything goes from your sexiest nightie to your comfiest footed PJs. You can even channel your inner Hugh Hef.

Put your best foot forward with lessons before the dancing starts. Then enjoy a night of music and dancing to the music of DJ Mambo Soul. And if you're in the giving mood, bring something for the toy drive for the underprivileged kids.

Come undressed in your best sleepwear
Don't be so shy,
the night of excitement will be as fireworks on 4th of July

A pajama party that's packed full of fun
Come cute as a bunny, conservative as a nun,
Hef with his harem or Hulk on the run
Funky Reggae mon, or a local Bal'more Hon

Leave your slippers behind and come in dance shoes
as we turn you on with Latin rhythm and tunes.

Whether you're a hot tamale or a big curvy Mami
villain or hero, sugar daddy or Papi Latino

Sexy, naughty, hunky, or buff
Dance to your heart's content 'cause you can't get enough

This will be one night you won't soon forget
So get yourself there or you'll surely regret

Come dance your socks off and don't forget the gift.
The gift of a teddy bear for a needy child
that will live forever in their hearts and in your mind.

To quote Amir: "I believe dancing is like a language that anyone can use anywhere, anytime, and everywhere regardless of your age, nationality, language, career or anything else, so it CONNECTS people and thats what I LOOOVEEE to see."  Amir's main goal is not only to teach students how to dance with confidence on the dance floor, but also to teach them how to make friends and how to communicate with others which are the main fundamentals for a good confident dancer. He is very easy and open to communicate with and very approachable so please don't hesitate to ask him anything!

Student Performance Team

The SalsaNow Performance Team is comprised of students from our Salsa classes. Team practices and performances provide an opportunity for students to take their dancing to a higher level and to strengthen the camaraderie among students. Performances also provide a platform for SalsaNow to showcase material that is taught in class and to demonstrate how much fun it is to be a part of SalsaNow. We are very proud of all of our students.
 
The student performance team is relatively informal, with dancers from all walks of life, of varied ages and experiences. The teams have trained for a professionally choreographed routine under the direction of SalsaNow's Niss and Alex. Practices are held weekly at The Promenade on Tuesdays at 9 PM. The team performs at various events and club demonstrations during the year as opportunities arise and schedules allow.

We welcome new members to join the next team. Qualified dancers should have a full grasp of salsa basics at an intermediate level, the ability to commit time to rehearsals, and most importantly, enthusiasm! Team experience is an excellent way to improve your dancing and meet lots of equally keen dancers. The choreography is designed specifically for this team with the abilities of the team members in mind, and no matter your prior experience, you will have a lot of fun as part of a close knit group, not to mention the thrill of entertaining the crowds. There is a fee collected up front for one month at a time based on how many hours are spent on training, and the dancers will need to purchase their own costumes (minimal cost).

New dance team training will start in 2014 and continue every Tuesday night.  For more information about the salsa team or to join our team, please contact us. The SalsaNow Performance team is currently available for performance bookings.

Baltimore Salsa Blog Benefit Party
On May 19th Ritmo De La Noche sponsors a community-wide benefit for the Baltimore Salsa Blog. Baltimore Salsa Blog has been instrumental in raising awareness of all Maryland salsa and bachata events in the most comprehensive, updated and unbiased format. We want to thank Sue Elliott for providing timely information on weekly basis and encourage her continuing to do this worthwhile service for the entire dance community to benefit from.

Please join SalsaNow as we host the hottest salsa night in Baltimore. Salseros unite in dancing On1, On2 and anything in-between. Salsa, Mambo, Bachata, Cha Cha Cha, Merengue, Casino Rueda - whatever your pleasure, you will find it here. We promise you a fabulous night of entertainment, music and dancing with an occasional live band and a rotating lineup of top salsa DJs in the area. You will always look forward to the next party.

For a terrific evening of music and dancing we welcome top DJs from the East Coast. And look at the features: dueling DJs, theme nights, BYOB, complimentary snack bar, great convenient location with free parking, huge dance floor, multi-level workshops, and all ages are welcome.
