Salsa, arguably the most popular Latin partner dance in the world, is done to exuberant music with complex, captivating rhythms.  It allows for endless creative expression, yet it’s quite accessible for beginners, and it can also be a great “gateway” to further partner dance exploration. Come out and dance!

Preston Reed
Saturday, April 20, 8-10 pm



One of the most influential guitarists in the world, Preston Reed has been captivating audiences globally for almost three decades with the two-handed integrated percussive style he began developing in the 1980’s.

Preston’s music combines chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion, fulfilling the orchestral potential of the guitar body. The power and depth of Preston’s timeless, imagery-evoking compositions are as unique as his execution. Blues, rock, metal, funk, jazz and classical styles are distilled into a breath-taking visual and sonic experience – a border-hopping musical language that tells stories without words.

As millions of YouTube viewers have discovered, Reed’s recordings and live performances continue to define the sound of the pioneering compositional guitar genre he invented over a quarter century ago.
