Great for anyone learning a wide variety of ballroom/Latin styles and there's a cash bar. The best feature is the huge dance floor meaning that you always have plenty of room to dance despite the high number of attendees. Hosted by Maria and Joe, originally from Celebrity Dance studios, Rhythm perpetuates a friendly crowd, consisting of almost every dance studio in Adelaide.
When: The last Sunday of every month from 3:30pm -8:30pm (Next one is Sunday 30th June)
Entry Fee: Free
Styles: Mainly Bachata and every now and then there are a few salsas.
Overall it's a very relaxed and casual affair with most of the crowd in jeans and flat shoes. The attendees are all very friendly and quick to compliment one another's dancing and are generally a slightly older crowd than what you might find at some other latin nights which is nice. 30, 40 and 50 something all dancing together and enjoy Latin tunes and good wine. Can get very crowded so get in early if you really want to dance!
