Salsa Free Style Night in Numazu ~ Salsa x Sushi = Happy ~

This post is also available in: ja日本語 (Japanese)





“Furisuta” is coming to Numazu!!!!

What on earth is “Furisuta..??”
Well Furisuta is a unique salsa party held on every 3rd Sunday in Ginza Las Risas Tokyo that is not like your usual salsa party at all. It’s crazy, it’s weird and it’s memorable for all the right (and strange) reasons and has a huge fan following!
This party will be led by Mac, a leading salsa instructor from Tokyo.

Nana Koizumi has been assisting this event for years and just moved back to her hometown Numazu. She found herself crying after realising she couldn’t enjoy Furisuta parties anymore, so she decided to bring it to Numazu!!!!


Since this is our first time to organize Furisuta in Numazu, we invited the original organizer Mac as a guest instructor and other Furisuta related performers to help make this party start out with a bang and give you the REAL Furisuta experience!


For the people who STILL have no idea what Furista is, just come join us and experience it for yourself and then you’ll know why it’s gained so much popularity in Tokyo!

<<What is Furisuta?? (Salsa Free Style Night)>>
Furista is not only bound to different styles of salsa but also incorporates any kind of dance.

Sometimes we have performers from other kinds of dance such as hiphop, belly dance and even Ota-Gei (Japanese Otaku dance ), stand-up comedy shows…and more!
Unlike other salsa parties, sometimes we have silly workshops like how to hold your breath longer (it was for before our summer tour so that we can enjoy diving more) or muscle night, takoyaki party and etc…

So the activities and performances in Furista are completely up to you and the party hosts!!!
Please come join us and let’s create a fun & crazy party together!!!


<<Sushi Night!!>>
This time, we will do temaki-zushi together. Let’s enjoy Numazu’s fresh sushi together!!!
We will prepare basic Sushi ingredients but please also BRING YOUR OWN unique Sushi fillers (e.g. cheese, vegemite, peanut butter or whatever weird ingredient you love)
We will have a “Best Numazu Roll” contest ;)!
So get your creativity rolling~! haha Did you get our dad joke? 😛

*We will be very careful with hygiene management, but please know that we cannot be held responsible for any health issues or sicknesses that arise from food served at our event as they will all be purchased from multiple sources.

More on Freestyle Salsa:
「What is Freestyle Salsa?」
Regardless of your salsa style (on1, on2, cuban) , you can dance with anyone smoothly, nicely, fun and it looks cool!
Mac teaches Cuban style-based freestyle salsa in Tokyo and many other places.
He will teach you how to dance like latinos (latinas), which means he will teach you to respect the musicality, play with Latin rhythms and be able to dance with anyone!!
In Mac’s free style lesson , you will learn the foundation of Cuban style salsa and he will add other style salsa techniques as well.
 Also he is good at explaining the difference between the salsa styles and also gives tips on how to dance well with dancers who dance different styles to what you know.
*** Even though this party is a crazy, strange party, his lesson is quite serious and very technical so you will learn a lot !!!
