Event Description

Western Wyoming Community College’s Dance Program presents a night of Salsa and Cha Cha dance lessons in the Freight Station at Bunning Hall at 6:30PM on February 14th.

Members of Western’s dance program invite the community to join them in a group lesson – no partner needed. Participants will learn the basics of salsa and cha cha, and ways to dance them with a partner, solo, or in group. Following the lesson, Western students pursuing Dance degrees with join participants on an open dance floor.

Salsa dancing originated in Cuba during the early 1900’s and is an intersection of Caribbean, European and African cultures. The Cha Cha is also of Cuban origin with African influence. Both types of dance are high-energy and have become popular all over the world.

“We’re excited to offer adults in Rock Springs and Green River something new to do this Valentine’s Day. Running this event offers a valuable educational experience to our students; they get experience with dance education and community outreach that are relevant to their degree program while serving the community with opportunities to dance,” said Rebecca Mayer, Assistant Professor of Dance at Western.

Doors open at 6:30PM and lessons begin at 7PM. The event is open to adults only. Tickets are $20 per individual or $30 per pair. Proceeds will benefit the academic dance program at Western to offset costs of attending the American College Dance Association regional festival in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Tickets are available for purchase at the Rock Springs Urban Renewal Agency, Western’s Green River Center and at the door. For inquiries or more information regarding this event please contact Rebecca Mayer, at rmayer@westernwyoming.edu.
