NEW MANAGEMENT from April 2016

As before
Description: Julia and Bob would like to announce that as from the 4th April 2016, we will be retiring from the management of Salsa-Asi!, but delighted to say that the Club will continue to function as before, and we are very pleased to say that it will be run in the very capable hands of Colleen & Matt Newman, and Peter & Vee Smith, who will we are sure be known to pretty much everyone, as they have (individually and collectively) been involved with us as members and instructors for some years. It is naturally with some reluctance that we have made this decision, but we both feel that it is perhaps time for us to step back, and for younger instructors, with fresher ideas and new aspirations, to take the lead, develop things, and move the club forward. Over the past 14 years or so, we have had the immensely fortunate to meet some truly lovely and talented people through Salsa-Asi! , and we hope we have been able to pass on some of our passion for and knowledge of salsa dancing and music, to good effect. It has been a humbling and hugely personally rewarding experience, something we would not have missed for the world, and we feel very privileged to have had this opportunity. Throughout we have always tried to provide two principal ingredients to our club, namely the teaching of good technique and dance practice, mixed with an equal measure of fun. We hope we have been successful to some degree at least. We have also tried to provide a friendly, safe environment where people can come to enjoy good company, and forget their troubles, at least for a few hours; and also to introduce people to really good Classic Salsa Music. We will both be continuing to support Salsa-Asi! of course, but not as the Principals, and we will also carry on teaching, as and when required. We do so hope that you have enjoyed what we have done over the past few years, and will continue to do so with Salsa-Asi! for the indefinite future. We are confident that the core principles we have established will continue to flourish, and to develop, in the very good hands of Colleen , Matt, Pete and Vee, who have our whole-hearted support. We named the club Salsa-Asi!, as an indication that we dance and teach salsa ‘like this’ or ‘this way’, that is to say ‘our way’; the name will continue but it will now be ‘their way!’ We would like to express our gratitude to you all, every one of you (student, supporter, promoter, instructor) for all of your support and encouragement over the years. We would dearly love to be able to thank you all personally, but sadly that is not an option. We do, however, love what we have done with and for you, and what you have done for us. A very big THANK YOU to one and all. Julia and Bob Salsa-Asi!
