From the current committee, we would like to warmly invite you to the Oxford University Salsa Society Summer Ball 2020!!!
This is Oxford’s biggest annual salsa event. Last year, the ball was a day long event with workshops in the afternoon and a big celebration of salsa, bachata and kizomba in the evening!!
The afternoon workshops took place in St Columba’s hall. We limited the availability so that the participants were able to get the most out of these sessions!!! Juan Soto & Shane brought their incredible flava style to the beginners and int/adv bachata class. The legendary Fadi K & Christina taught int/adv salsa, and the super bubbly and vibrant Jennifer Benavidez taught beg/imp. Salsa. We were so excited to be able to organise those workshops. OUSS made sure that our members did not miss out on this special treat!
The ball takes place in the grand Oxford Town Hall. We will have evening workshops from local teachers and performers from the OUSS team. Last year Juan Soto & Shane, James & Evelyn and the Imperial College team participated. Live music was provided by the Dockside Latin Orchestra in the salsa room as well as DJs Sergio, Petar, Fadi K and Alex running our separate salsa and bachata rooms.
We know that Oxford folk are hardcore party animals. Usually we book the Emporium nightclub. It’s big and we shall have our own local salsa DJs playing at the event. Last entry is at 2am so make sure you head straight over there after the ball.
How to get here?
The workshops and ball take place in central Oxford. Parking in central Oxford can be a bit of a pain. If you are getting a train, you won’t have a problem. If you bring your car, be prepared to pay.There are plenty of Park & Rides into the city. The Westgate Centre has plenty of parking spaces and is close to the venue.
The event will be spread across two rooms – one dedicated to the most classic Latin rhythms of Salsa, Mambo and Cha Cha Cha, the other to Bachata, Kizomba and all things Sensual.
We shall have a cash bar serving a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including fine wine, draft beer, bubbles and signature cocktails.

Attire is cocktail. We want you to be fancy, come dressed to impress and dazzle – but it is salsa and in a big old building in May so maybe come ventilated or with extra powerful deodorant! There will be an unmanned cloakroom and a cash-only cocktail bar.
