Mobile Ballet Presents:


Summer Salsa Night!

Sunday, July 28, 2024

5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

at Dauphin’s and Las Floriditas


A Fundraiser for Mobile Ballet

Sponsored by Aloha Hospitality


Get ready to spice up your summer with Mobile Ballet at a sizzling new event!

Summer Salsa Night will be a sensational evening featuring Latin-inspired cuisine at Dauphin’s, followed by dessert, drinks, and salsa dancing at Las Floriditas!

The community is invited to join us and celebrate the kickoff of Mobile Ballet’s 2024-2025 Season at this special event sponsored by Aloha Hospitality.  Along with delicious food and drinks, attendees will enjoy salsa lessons, a dance contest, and performances (with a few surprises!) throughout the evening.

Don’t worry if you’re new to salsa!  Mobile Ballet’s artistic team, husband and wife Israel Rodriguez and Katia Garza, will lead salsa lessons to teach you some basic steps and get you ready to hit the dance floor.  Israel’s own roots are in Cuba, and his fun salsa lessons in recent months at Las Floriditas have been a huge hit.  Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll get to experience the passion and excitement of salsa and go home at the end of the night with new moves and confidence.

Summer Salsa Night will take place at the RSA Trustmark Building in downtown Mobile at two of the city’s finest restaurants, with the breathtaking panoramic view at Dauphin’s on the 34th floor and Las Floriditas, the iconic Cuban speakeasy in the vault.

As a fundraiser for Mobile Ballet, proceeds from this event will go towards specialized outreach, education, and instruction.

Save the date and get your dancing shoes ready!  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to share the dance floor with Mobile Ballet’s own celebs, help us kick off a new season, beat the summer heat, and have an unforgettable good time!
