Friday Salsa

Join us for fun, community, and dancing every Friday at Equal Latin's Restaurant & Bar. Dance to a variety of music like Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia, etc. People dance from all over the world with us bringing different styles to the community. Just like how a language can have dialects, accents, and slang, yet still be understood. We don't believe there is a "correct" way to dance, as long as it's to the music and you and your partner are having fun!

Time: Every Friday, 9pm-Midnight

Location: Equal Latins Bar & Restaurant - 520 4th Ave E Olympia, WA

Admission: $10 at the door cash, card, check (Discounts for those that need it)
