Saturdays at the Village–is always full of dancers from Aggieland and the Brazos Valley region. The cafe’s warm atmosphere–with paintings by local artists hanging from the walls, comfy leather couches, and a friendly staff–have made the venue a popular spot for Latin dancing in B-CS.
The night begins with a fun complimentary salsa lesson at 10pm (no partner or experience necessary). Guests learn all of the basic steps in a jovial atmosphere, with an energetic instructor notorius for making you laugh while you’re learning at the same time.
Following the lesson, the dance floor opens for a night of dancing to salsa, bachata, and merengue. Plan on sweating; it gets hot out
there–even in the winter!
