Coming to St. Petersburg from Italy for a dance!
I am a salsa passionate, arriving from Italy this friday. I do not speak a Russian word, but I will not let me be deterred, and I will go dance all the same, on the very same night, but also other nights in the week.

I would really love to go with some locals; would you like to help me, I mean, to suggest me a place, introduce me to your salsa frields at the club, maybe meet beforehands for an aperitif? On friday, or on some other night?

I am a totally-relaxed dancer; I love to dance with partners of any skill level, style, or appearance, provided they are happy with my skill level ("just intermediate") style ("everything goes") and appearance ("just me"). Salsa and bachata are my things, but I would never skip any other dance.

Please, do not let me go alone! :)

Wow, Giorgio, welcome then to Mother Russia :)) Hope you'll like it here :) Too bad I'm not anywhere close to St.Pete or Moscow, otherwise I'd love to show you around. I'm sure though that there will be enough guys (and possibly ladies) to be your salsa guides. In the meantime, I would recommend you check the following link: provided you can read Cyrillic :) Good luck with your salsa adventures in Russia!

I am personally going to Oxford friday night. Can meet you, show the place and introuduce to people I know

Thanks Alexandre! I will be heading for salsa loca first, but I may move to Oxford later on, if I survive (I slept three hours this night...). In this case, I will actively look around for you, so please, if you notice me first, come forward and say hello!

Hoping to see you quite soon,

Marinka did miss everything ))

giorgio 21.03.2009 06:07

Dear friends, before going to bed let me thank all of you for an incredible night, "Simonetta" and Victor for helping me breaking the ice at salsa loca, alexandre for suggesting to reach oxford after that, and all the members of the forum that accepted my dance invites and tolerated my limited skills. If Marinka did miss anything, there are still hopes, I think I may be around tomorrow night as well, Jane and Tatiana suggested "the sphinx", I had planned a milonga but after this night I may change my mind.

see you soon, hopefully, and спасибо!
