Dancing Salsa, Bachata or Swing in Hua Hin.

Post by SalsaGirl » Mon Oct 29, 2012 11:18 pm

Hi, I'm new. Does anyone know where I can dance Salsa, Bachata or Swing in Hua Hin? I like to practice dancing and dance with the leader (the man who is interested in dancing) :D

Hello Salsagirl,
I've been a (the) salsaman for at least ten years, also looking desperately for some latin variation like salsa, bachata, reggaeton, etc in Hua Hin, since 2007 without success. Not yet a Thai thing obviously.
BUT - I've sometimes been lucky in taking over the DJ-job by chatting with the Thai DJ buying him/her some drinks and then they gladly swing around the laptop for me to find my playlist on youtube, itunes, etc.
Just find a bar with big enough dance floor without an owner strictly running the "Hotel California-" or similar concept.

If thai audience make a soft crossover putting these on top of your list:
"Bird" Thongchai McIntyre (a musical institution, now age 58 I think)


Katreeya English (singer, performer not always hitting the tone, but...)

Good luck inspiring demand for latino music in general as well as for dancing,
I'll be there in April - will listen and look for your footprints ;-)

Hello Salsagirl and Juicelover,

I know your post is already 4yrs old so i don't know if the subject is still applicable for you, if you are still in Hua Hin or still on this forum. If you are still in Hua Hin and still looking to dance salsa, there are currently preparations going on to organize salsa social dancing nights in Hua Hin and we are hoping to start soon.

Therefor it would be most helpful to connect as many people as possible that are interested to visit salsa dance nights in Hua Hin, so let us hear from you!

Arriving tomorrow I'm still interested in participating, though I'll stay only for 3 weeks. I'm male and may bring partner if necessary. Looking to Salsa, Son and maybe Bachata.

That's quite a coincidence, I am personally on my way as we speak and will arrive later today. I don't know if a regular dance night will be possible within your time frame already, but if we are lucky we might get a one time small event done with a few people on a short notice. Let's stay in contact the next few days and see what happens. It might be practical as well to connect on our fb page facebook.com/salsahuahin. It's the platform of communication for the growing salsa community in HuaHin. If we connect and work together we have a better chance to succeed in having a social dance night finally as well, cause it is actually surprising there is not one yet in HuaHin.

We will let this run providing it stays free, if it becomes a commercial venture you will need to take an advertising package.

Thanks.
