Salsa Thursday with lessons and Latin dancing
Thursday, September 1 at 7:30pm Cost: $10.00 with lesson, $5.00 for just dancing
The Rosendale Cafe continues their series of Latin dance events on Thursday nights, each starting with an all-levels lesson from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, and dancing until 10:30pm. Instructor David Salvatierra and Julia Farr will lead dance forms that may include Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Cha Cha, Bachata, and now the fun style of Rueda de Casino.
Rueda de Casino is a style where several couples dance choreographically around a circle, with dance moves spoken by a "caller". This style was developed in Cuba in the 1950s, and is the greatest way to learn salsa as community. Everyone can join this class!

Opening reception for Joan E Dominus' gallery exhibition
Sunday, September 4 at 2:00pm Cost: Free
An opening reception from 2:00pm-4:00pm, for artist Joan E Dominus' (AKA Zawadzki's) mixed media show displaying in the Cafe during the month of September 2016.
The artist writes: "I am a retired nurse by profession, but an I have always been an artist in my heart. I am originally from Highland Falls, NY; and grew up in the Hudson Highlands. I have been showing my art for the past 30 or so years. I have developed a mixed media using photography, print, and watercolor. I enjoy photographing nature on a hike, scenes I see on a walk in the city, or along adventures of travel. I take those images and then using several steps, print them onto watercolor paper. I then reinterpret the images using watercolor pencil. Sometimes the images are collected in a collage."
