Nick Robinson has been teaching salsa for 15 years, while living in New York, Miami and Puerto Rico. Currently he is living in Columbia while he pursues a PhD. in English Literature. He plans to teach salsa lessons at Eastside Tavern, starting Wednesday, Oct. 6.
The lessons, held every Wednesday, will cost $7 per person and start at 8:30 p.m. Following the lessons, there will be a $5 after party where attendees can use their dancing skills from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Participants must be 18 to enter, 21 to drink.
Solo dancers are encouraged to attend, as partners are mixed throughout the night to create a meet and greet environment, Robinson said.
For more information, call Eastside at 573-256-1500, or Robinson at 786-200-9539.
