Due to popular demand La Peña is proud to announce a new weekly Begginers-Intermidiate Salsa Class every Monday at 8pm with our talented and friendly "salsaholic" instructor Shu-Jon!
Classes are weekly, drop-in friendly and affordable! $5 for students, $7-$10 sliding scale for non-students per 1.5 hour class.
Shu-Jon has been dancing salsa for 12 years, ever since he stumbled upon salsa dancing at a birthday party. After that life changing moment he has learned from instructors from all over, including SF, LA, SD, and NYC, performing with multiple dance groups at various dance festivals and events, competing, teaching, and traveling… all for the joy of salsa.
"I'd like to share my passion with others via a new weekly salsa lessons at the beautiful La Pena Cultural Center in Berkeley Monday nights from 8 to 9 pm. Thanks and welcome to the addiction."

Attention Bay Area mural arts enthusiasts! Have you ever wondered what it takes to complete a mural? Come out to the Bay Area Mural Festival between October 17th and October 23rd to see over 25 artists and youth working on creating 12 fabulous new murals in the Lorin district along the Berkeley/ Oakland border.
