If you’re in charge of organizing a festivity or a family reunion and want to spice up an otherwise traditional party, then you can’t go wrong with a Salsa theme. Even if you’re clueless about the Cuban-African rhythms of salsa, rest assured that your guests will be talking about your party for a long time. Following are some tips on how to make a memorable salsa party.
- Hire Salsa dancers
Because the right ambience can set up your event for success from the start, the first thing and most important thing you will need for your party is the mesmerizing music. In case you don’t know how to dance salsa, then you could consider hiring an instructor to give you a lesson or two before the occasion. In addition, to make sure your guests will be jumping on the dance floor once the music starts pumping, hire Salsa dancers to set the mood.
- Have the right decorations
Look over your guest lists and choose a location for your celebration that provides enough space for them to move around freely. If the weather is fine and warm, then you can hold your party on an outdoor patio. Since Salsa dancing requires some space, throwing an indoor party could be problematic. Nevertheless, this issue can be addressed as well by moving the furniture out of the largest room of your home. Don’t forget to use special lighting and vibrant colors to decorate the space.
- Food and drinks
Since no Salsa themed party can be complete without the traditional drinks, prepare several pitchers of margaritas and sangria to quench the thirst of your guests. On a side note, you should provide several non-alcoholic drink options, such as sodas and water. As far as the food is concerned, some Latin-American finger-foods like quesadillas or empanadas constitute the best option in this case.
