Alisar Dance Company was born on 26 January 2013. (The name comes from my salsa monicker which is Spanish for “Smooth” as this is part of my ultimate Salsa ambition)
While it has been around for a little while it was only in June that I decided that its time for some big things to happen. Now as a result, August is the beginning of the changes for Alisar Dance Company.
Just so you know, the website is under construction (but it will be Awesome once it comes out). If you however want to follow what I am doing, go onto facebook and like the Alisar Dance Company page.
So what is going on in the month of August?
My first production which happened to be a Flashmob happened on the 3rd of August 2013. This has been a bucket list item for a long time and I decided it was time to make it happen. It was also used to promote the Cape Town Salsa Festival (which is taking place from 31 October to 3 November 2013). The flashmob consisted of 45 people and we flashmobbed 3 locations including the Airport and the V&A Waterfront (one of the biggest Malls in Cape Town) You can check out some of the highlights by clicking the pic.
More videos and pics of this event are coming soon, so keep an eye on my page.
What else does August hold for Alisar? Well it also marks the beginning of my Bachata Classes. I have been talking for years about being Cape Town’s first Bachatero (other than George Daniels) and now I think its time it happened. So starting 21 August I plan to start pushing and promoting the Bachata scene and the Wednesday class is just the beginning. Watch this space as I have some amazing things planned.
Lastly, August also marks the return of my workshops in Cape Town. I had taken a long hiatus from Cape Town workshops and now its time I got back into the swing of it.
So keep an eye out for Alisar Dance company, not only in the month of August but for the rest of 2013!
Que Viva La Salsa!
