Slide Across the Dance Floor At Salsa Idaho 

Saturday, April 21

The City of Trees may not exactly exude Latin flare, but there will be plenty of it when MJ3 Productions puts on the sixth annual Salsa Idaho Festival. The event will include live music, performances by professional salsa dancers and lessons for beginning salsa-ers.

MJ3 Productions was formed by Laura "Lolita" Johnston in order to bring Latin entertainment to Idaho. Johnston teamed up with Guatemala native DJ Giovanni to provide the Boise area with a taste of Latin music and dance instructions. Merengue, bachata and salsa are the cultural dances taught by Johnston and will be featured at the festival.

Don't worry if you are not up to par with the sophisticated moves seen on Dancing With the Stars. This event doesn't require any experience—dances will be broken down to the basics and taught in a fun, energetic atmosphere. Orchestra Zarabanda, a Cuban band hailing from Seattle, is set to play along with Salsa Con Rumba Dance Company, so you can learn some slick moves sans the CD player.

This occasion is one of few late-night events available for those too young to imbibe adult beverages but old enough to technically be deemed "adults." The more mature crowd can partake in the full bar.
