Welcome to Le Hot Sauce VIII, 2013.

This is our 8th edition of “Le Hot Sauce,” which started out about 6 years ago here in the Bay area.  We are bringing this event to you to help give you a wonderful dancing experience & share with you the following: Highly skilled instructors, Fantastic Classes with different levels in Lindy & Balboa, Specialty tasters, 2 different levels of Jack N Jill Contests, LIVE MUSIC, lots of social dancing, Chips & Salsa, Special Performances, a chance to meet new people on the dance floor, a chance to gather with friends, & an energetic vibe, a great learning opportunity.  This is really going to be a unique Lindy Hop event & a very positive experience.

The main events are at CCSF (City College of San Francisco) and if you are taking public transportation, please use the BART stop at Balboa.  It is a short walk from that station to the school – very, very convenient.  We think walking with friends is a great idea.

Everyone, please be smart about traveling in a foreign city and leave time for traffic, public transportation delays *(reading maps etc), and be smart and travel with a buddy when possible.  We will help you to buddy up when leaving events and you can post on our Facebook page about needing rides as well.

We are super thrilled to have you here in the Bay area and to share in this dance experience with us.  Thank you so much!
