Plant 4 Bowden has become an Adelaide institute for arts and culture over the years, and they’ve just levelled up – introducing Salsa Sundays.
Every first Sunday of the month the warehouse-style venue will clear the ground floor of its tables and chairs and make way for a big old dance floor. Salsa Sundays are designed to entertain people from all walks of life and of all ages – whether you’re an experienced dancer or a beginner who is willing to learn the ropes and feel the contagious energy of salsa, bachata and kizomba.
For those that are on their L plates when it comes to dancing, event hosts, One Dance incorporates either a warm-up introduction or a dance class into each Sunday soiree.
If you’re really not confident on your feet or perhaps you’re more of a people-watcher, you can head upstairs to the mezzanine level and gaze over the balcony to observe the action happening below. Here, you can sit back and indulge in some mouth-watering food and a sneaky drink.
While you’re busy sitting back and taking it all in, One Dance resident DJ’s Ayman Kasim, Nixon Sola and Domenique Spadavecchia will be on the decks providing your ears with a musical feast – it’ll be hard NOT to get up and give salsa a crack.
In between all that, performers from a variety of dance schools around Adelaide will be drifting about the floor – so if you haven’t danced before, you know who to look out for to learn the tricks of the trade.
July 3rd is locked in for the next evening of Salsa Sundays. Event tickets aren’t required if you’re strictly after an upstairs affair or if you’re a child. But if you’re looking to really dive straight into the action, you can book tickets via Eventbrite or purchase on arrival at Plant 4.
