About Humba Rumba Salsa
Passionate about Latin dancing or only thought about becoming a salsero? Humba Rumba Salsa Society is a good starting point and has loads to offer!
First of all, there are weekly lessons on Mondays (at Pearson's Bar, Princes avenue 6a) and Wednesdays (at the Newland Community church). On both days lesson start at 7:30pm and there are separate instructors for beginners, improvers and intermediates. One lesson normally is
£5 but for the members of the society those are £3. After the lesson there is always free social dancing at least till 10:30pm.
Apart from that, there are free weekly classes on Tuesdays 5-7 pm in Asylum. Those are led by Margarita or other teachers from the Humba Rumba team. We also are planning to invite guest teachers! On Fridays 7-9 pm there will be practice sessions in the MR 7. During these sessions other dancing styles, for example, bachata, kizomba, cha cha or forro will be explored. All suggestions from the members of the society will be explored!
Done with the lessons, let's talk about PAAAAARTIES!!! So, there are 2 monthly parties: Latin (First Friday) Fury at Nacho's (Princes avenue) with the music from 10pm and free entry; and another party - NYC is on Saturday in the middle of each month at Drax Social Club. We will be organising buses for the society members to attend the NYC nights, so do not worry if you do not drive! Those usually start at 8pm with a lesson by top
UK guest teachers. Then there is social dancing till about 2:30 am. Amazing DJs, teachers and dancers from all over UK are usually coming, so you will really enjoy those nights! Those are normally £10 but the special price for the society members is only £5.
As for the membership itself, it is £5 and you can get it either online or at the 1st floor of the student union.
Please feel free to email regarding any questions and also join the Society's Facebook group for more information and to stay updated.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
