The Big Salsa

16 February @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£12.50 – £55

TV dancing sensation Graziano Di Prima is calling for dancers of all abilities to
join him at Manchester’s AO Arena in an attemot to break the world record for
the largest number of people taking part in a salsa dance lesson.

The Big Salsa Dance takes place on 16 February 2024 in aid of Child
Bereavement UK, a charity that supports children, young people, parents and
families, when a child grieves or when a child dies.

Graziano will be leading dancers in a 30-minute salsa
dance lesson culminating in a 3-minute performance. The event is a fun
opportunity for dancers of all levels to get together for what promises to be a
once in a lifetime experience.

The event, kindly supported by Hurst Dance Studios, includes entertainment
from surprise guests and the chance to practise your salsa and Latin moves
to a fantastic live band. And one lucky person will win the opportunity for a
private meet and greet with Graziano, Giada and friends.

If you don’t want to join the record attempt, you can still join in as a spectator
before being invited down to the floor to enjoy the entertainment and live

Participants must be aged over 18 or over 16 if accompanied by a parent or
guardian. No age restrictions on spectators. To find out more about taking part go to:
