FYI, Club Recess is only on First Sundays for the time being. Just found out myself. We had a blast at the first one!
Alas, no more salsa con estilo at Karma on Sundays.
I don't update the news on this site often, but don't be fooled- I update the calendar much more regularly.
I'm making an exception to urge you to attend Philadelphia Salsafest 2010. This is guaranteed to be even better than last year's smash debut. Please do come on out Halloween weekend. Don't even dream of wasting your time somewhere else!
Salsadelphia now features more than 100 events! The credit belongs to you, the salseros of Greater Philly, for supporting so many fantastic venues, studios, instructors, bands and DJs. Keep it up.
Try accessing salsadelphia.com from your mobile phone! I've adapted the results to better suit cell phone browsers: you will see one week's worth of events, starting today, pure and simple- without all the extra trappings that just get in the way on a small device.
I have tried this out on simpler phones but not on an iPhone, so please do send me your feedback.
now features Monday night salsa, with a lesson at the beginning of the night taught by Eli Torres
. Thanks to Sazam
for the tip.
Okay, so it took a little longer than I expected to get the site where I wanted it to be!
It was worth it to get things right. Now, send me some juicy updates...
Long in the daydreaming, surprisingly quick in the programming, Salsadelphia has finally replaced my old Philly Salsa Directory
Salsadelphia may not seem like a big change, but there's a lot going on "under the hood." You can click on any latin dance style to limit the results to that style, restrict the results to classes, DJs or bands, and bring up results for specific DJs, venues, studios and instructors.
For instance, you can quickly access classes taught by Joe Figueroa
, nights when Jay Rockwell
is spinning, events at Brasils
or events associated with Estilo
. And I can link to all of the above easily in these news stories.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. Many more features are forthcoming, and I plan to incorporate studio class listings as well as club listings.
And yes, everyone in the Greater Philly area is welcome to be listed on the new Salsadelphia site. I've discarded the old "in the city limits" requirement. Instead, I've added features that help you search for venues that are located in Center City and venues that are transit-friendly.
