Salsa Saint Lu­cia turns 3 – Young but Strong and Solid!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

If you have ever been to a Salsa Saint Lu­cia party, which typ­i­cally at­tracts a crowd of well over 100 per­sons, or vis­ited the vi­brant Face­book page of over 12,000 likes, you would find it dif­fi­cult to be­lieve that Salsa Saint Lu­cia is only three years old.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion cel­e­brated its third birth­day yes­ter­day with an ex­cep­tional An­niver­sary Latin Dance Party at BLU Ho­tel.

Salsa Saint Lu­cia, still in its youth­ful stages, has blos­somed over the years into an ef­fi­ciently de­vel­oped, vi­brant and ad­vanced move­ment that has re­gen­er­ated Latin dance and mu­sic in Saint Lu­cia. Salsa Saint Lu­cia’s event plan­ning, dance work­shop ex­e­cu­tion and in­struc­tional Latin dance classes are out­stand­ing!

Es­tab­lished in Fe­bru­ary 2013 by, Dr. Peter St. Rose, CEO and Founder, Salsa Saint Lu­cia is a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a cre­ative, vi­brant and ex­cit­ing al­ter­na­tive to en­ter­tain­ment, dance, fit­ness and so­cial­iz­ing in Saint Lu­cia.

Its mis­sion is to pro­mote fit­ness, healthy liv­ing, so­cial de­vel­op­ment and cul­tural di­ver­sity through Latin dance and mu­sic in a fun, re­spectable en­vi­ron­ment. This man­date is achieved through the host­ing of var­i­ous types of Latin dance par­ties, Latin dance work­shops and In­struc­tional Latin dance classes.

Ev­ery year Salsa Saint Lu­cia grad­u­ates over 80 Latin dance stu­dents.

Its per­for­mance group has par­tic­i­pated in events both lo­cally and re­gion­ally.

Ad­di­tion­ally Salsa Saint Lu­cia or­ga­nizes char­ity par­ties to as­sist var­i­ous wor­thy causes in Saint Lu­cia.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion has been highly in­flu­en­tial in chang­ing the per­cep­tion that dance is only for a se­lect few with its invit­ing and un­for­get­table slo­gan “Any­one can dance”.

Salsa Saint Lu­cia is cur­rently col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board to pro­mote the Saint Lu­cia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val 2016 and its highly pop­u­lar Latin mu­sic-head­lin­ing per­former Marc An­thony.

Salsa Saint Lu­cia is also well into the plan­ning stages of its hotly-an­tic­i­pated Latin Jazz Party slated for May 7, 2016 at Indies Night Club. The Latin Jazz Party, one of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s sig­na­ture events, is hosted an­nu­ally at the apex of the Jazz sea­son.

For more in­for­ma­tion and all the lat­est up­dates about the Latin Jazz Party 2016, dance work­shops or any other Salsa Saint Lu­cia events, like Salsa Saint Lu­cia’s page on Face­book. ex­pe­ri­ence for the packed au­di­ence when Mr Modeste Downes, in his book re­view, de­liv­ered a scin­til­lat­ing trib­ute to Mr Ray­man, and mem­bers of the Fo­rum read ex­cerpts from Mr. Ray­man’s sto­ries, as well as from an as­sort­ment of his other lit­er­ary works. One se­lec­tion was also dra­ma­tized, to the au­di­ence’s amuse­ment.

Miss Juelle Cadette, the cur­rent pres­i­dent of the Writ­ers Fo­rum, in her stim­u­lat­ing ad­dress, ex­pressed grat­i­tude to the past pres­i­dent, Mr Kensely Charle­magne, for his vi­sion and for the dy­namism of the group she was elected to lead. Miss Cadette ex­tended an in­vi­ta­tion to other writ­ers to join the Fo­rum as plans are afoot to ex­tend the scope of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

There were cock­tails, cham­pagne, re­fresh­ments, so­cial­iz­ing, book sale and a sign­ing to cul­mi­nate a pleas­ant evening.

The Writ­ers Fo­rum meets ev­ery Tues­day at 6 p.m. at the Cas­tries Cen­tral Li­brary.
