COME AT 4:30 FOR A FREE SALSA DANCING CLASS with Laura Canellias, professional salsa dancer
The final week of Jazz on the Lawn features the Susie Hansen Latin Band. Playing lively Afro-Cuban salsa and Latin jazz, electric violinist and vocalist Susie Hansen has been a favorite in Los Angeles for twenty-five years. Her ensemble loves to get the audience up and dancing — as Susie says, “We aim for the feet!” Susie and her band play familiar and traditional salsa in Spanish, many original salsa and Latin jazz compositions, Latin-style interpretations of American jazz standards, typico Cuban Charanga music, cumbia, merengue, and bolera.
Come experience what the LA Times calls “high voltage excitement” that gets “the whole room jumpin’ for joy” (SF Examiner) August 27th, and come early for a FREE SALSA LESSON at 4:30pm!
