Swing into The Strand and salsa this Spring

Learn how to swing and salsa dance for free at The Strand this Spring!

Seasoned dancers and budding Salsa and Swing dance enthusiasts will be able to bust a move at two free pop up dance events happening at the shopping centre.

This Saturday locals are invited to a free Salsa Pop Up led by Alejandro Barriga from Latinmania Dance School from 6.30pm – 8.30pm.


The team at Swing Dance Gold Coast will then host a Swing Pop Up on Saturday 23 September from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.

The free events will feature live DJs, plenty of people to dance with and are suitable for all ages and abilities.

The Strand Marketing Manager, Sarah Clasen, said The Strand the place to be this spring with the two popular styles livening up the centre each month.

“It’s time to come out of winter hibernation, dust off those dancing shoes, join the free fun and learn some new moves at the Salsa and Swing Pop Ups,” said Ms Clasen.

“The Strand is the perfect venue for a regular social dance feature – right in the heart of Coolangatta and we see more and more locals and visitors coming along to enjoy these regular events each month.

“Regardless of your age, ability or experience, we welcome anyone who wants to participate in some good old fashioned fun, dance the night away, make new friends and have a great time.”

Supported by My Juju Dance Fever at The Strand, the Salsa Pop Up is a regular feature on the third Saturday of the month alongside the Swing Pop Up on the fourth Saturday of each month in the Level 1 dance space at the top of the travelators.
