    I am going to Paris for a week, in the period April 18th - April 25th... and I would just love to check out the local Salsa scene... so, could you guys and gals recommend Salsa clubs I should go to?
    I have to tell you I only dance LA style... I've tried Cuban and followed pretty well... on2 is still impossible for me :)
    So, any suggestions?
    Or is there any one who is registered on this site and lives in Paris or is there in the above mentioned period... and would like to give me a tour of the city?
    :)) thanks in advance

    Paris? I went to Paris but didn´t have the chance to salsa. I was a beginner then and wanted to check out the salsa clubs but unfortunately, my friend didn´t like dancing so we didn´t go. :cry:

    I´m sure Lily can give you the information you want or other DF members.

    P.S. Paris is a very beautiful city. Definitely worth visiting. :D

    Well, let's see--I just visited Paris for a short lunch date two weeks ago, but you know the Champs Elysee is sooooooo yesterday's news and....

    Gosh, I feel so sorry for you, Squirrel! Let's get this straight--the dilemma you face is which salsa clubs to go visit in Paris? In the good ole U S of A, we're here doing our taxes and you're wringing your hands about where to dance in Paris??????? :shock:

    :lol: I have no idea where to dance in Paris, I wish I did! :lol: You have yourself a blast, and have a crocque monsieur and double spin for me!

    Cheers,

    Genesius

    thanks guys... hope to have a good time in Paris... I'll be there for a seminar... job-related stuff...
    please, maybe there's someone out there who knows Paris... :)

    PS: Genesius, I'm Romanian, your American taxes have nothing to do with me... and to be honest, I would've preferred to go to LA... but... sometimes one has to settle for what one can :)

    www.salsafrance.com/forum is definitively the place to go for information.
    There are nice people there. People answer fast. Lot of salsa addicted there. You might find some forum users to guide you around. At, least it happens in the past for some people who asked the same question as you do. Good luck. If you have probvem with french don't hesitate to contact me. For information they use to call LA Style "Porto on 1". I'm unfortunately not in Paris but in Germany.
    hope it helps.
