This past Oct 22nd, we had the opportunity to share a little bit of what we love: we taught a Salsa dance lesson to our Venezuelan community and had a BLAST!!
FUN FACT: This was our first time teaching a class entirely in Spanish!
The Taste of Venezuela event was incredibly well organized and it showcased not only dancing, but also live Venezuelan music, food and local artisans.
As a proud 'Maracucho", it was an amazing experience being able to enjoy live Gaitas Zulianas (Venezuelan folkloric music) by Estampida Gaitera, especially since we have been away from home for over a decade.
It is always special to connect with your roots, customs and heritage.
Big thanks to The Venezuelan Canadian Association of Calgary (VCAC) for having us and for putting together such a fun and warm event.
