Today's Event at the Cafe:
Bachata Thursday with lessons and dancing
Thursday, December 18 at 7:30pm  Cost: $10.00 with lesson, $5.00 for just dancing   iCal +Google

Bachata Thursday with lessons and dancingThe Rosendale Cafe offers their continuing series of Latin dance events on most Thursday nights, each starting with an all-levels lesson from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, and dancing until 10:30pm. Food will be served up to 10:00pm, after which there will only be bar service for the rest of the evening.

This is the second of two nights of Basic Bachata teaching, the first of which is on December 11th. After this, because of the holidays, there will be no Thursday dances until January 8th.

The instructor this evening with be Dojo Dance Company's Julia Farr, who has been dancing salsa and other forms of Latin dance for ten years. She began her studies in Chile and Mexico (the "on 1" style) and proceeded to pursue salsa intensively when she moved back to New York City. She focused on Cuban style Rueda de Casino at You Should Be Dancing in Manhattan, and then moved on to New York Style ("on 2") at Latin Fever in Brooklyn, where she performed on a student team.

Julia is a regular at the Rosendale Cafe's salsa night and is part of Maia Martinez and David Salvatierra's Dojo Dance Company.

Julia is an enthusiastic teacher with a fun-loving approach and attention to detail and expression. Her experiences living in Latin America, as well as being a certified ESL and Spanish teacher and translator, have given her a connection to Latin music and dance that she looks forward to sharing with you!

Tom PachecoA Peace Concert

No one can advance the cause of peace and justice through songwriting like Tom, who once again returns to the Cafe for a night of masterful folk artistry. This is the voice you need to hear in this season of dreidls and angels.

Brian Hollander will be accompanying Tom, playing Dobro. Bruce Milner on Keyboard.

"Whilst Mr. Springsteen draws on the inspiration of Guthrie, Seeger, etc.; Pacheco is the real thing, cut from the same cloth as those guys, with the same dust on his boots, and the same song in his heart." --Steve Morris, NetRhythms.co.uk
