Salsa Thursday with lessons and Latin dancing
Thursday, June 29 at 7:30pm Cost: $10.00 with lesson, $5.00 for just dancing
The Rosendale Cafe continues their series of Latin dance events on Thursday nights, each starting with an all-levels lesson from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, and dancing until 10:30pm. Instructors Maia Martinez and David Salvatierra will lead dance forms that may include Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Cha Cha, Bachata, and now the fun style of Rueda de Casino.
Rueda de Casino is a style where several couples dance choreographically around a circle, with dance moves spoken by a "caller". This style was developed in Cuba in the 1950s, and is the greatest way to learn salsa as community. Everyone can join this class!

Abby Hollander Band
Friday, June 30 at 8:00pm Cost: $10.00
Abby Hollander is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning songwriter; originally from Woodstock, NY. In 2013 she formed her band in Brooklyn to perform her original songs in a traditional bluegrass setting.
Jason Borisoff, a Romulus, NY native, plays guitar, sings harmony, and co-writes songs. Ellery Marshall, from Los Angeles, provides the banjo sound that is one of the group's trademark features. The group is regularly joined some of the Northeast's best fiddle and mandolin players. All the musicians play an active role in helping Abby arrange her songs, making the band a dynamic, collaborative experience, rooted equally in the time-honored sounds of bluegrass, and the 21st century city they call home.
The band has been featured in numerous bluegrass festivals and publications, including as emerging artists at the 2015 Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.
Their self-titled debut album is now available for download on iTunes and Amazon, and on CD at any of their shows.
This event was originally scheduled for June 24th.
"This one's a keeper. Keep an eye on the Abby Hollander Band." --John Lawless, Bluegrass Today
