One of Cozumel's premier Cuban Salsa schools Salsa D’Primera will be holding its first anniversary party this weekend.  Students are excited to present their work and choreographies, and show off their school’s talent.  They’ve decided to make the anniversary a fundraising event for a charity that gathers funds for cataract eye operations for people who don’t’ have resources to pay. Their goal is to raise enough money to pay for 20 operations.  The entrance fee to the event goes towards this cause, headed by Vamos Juntos por Tu Sonrisa A.C. 

In addition to the school’s talent showcase, there are 18 other regional salsa schools that have been invited to participate and some of those will also present shows during the evening.  Top notch music will be provided by guest Cuban orchestra El Team y su Sabrosura.  And the event wouldn’t be complete without special guest musician Jorge Aquino, Cozumel’s own beloved Latin musician. 

Don’t miss out on this huge event on Saturday Aug 16, 2014 at 9pm.  It will be held at Senor Frog’s, and tickets are either 100 pesos in advance or 120 pesos at the door.
