Many are happy to see Giggles open for Salsa on the main floor once again. Giggles has a great set-up, good sound and light systems, a nice and spacious dance floor, friendly staff, a full bar, a smoking patio, and a centralized location from both the San Fernando and the San Gabriel valleys.
Pachanguero Entertainment has the following of many Salsa enthusiasts and the support of several popular Salsa dance companies. In the past two weeks, members of Salsa Brava and Salsabor y Cache entertained the crowd with a dance performance. This upcoming Thursday, May 2nd, Abel Pe?a and his dance group will do the same.
If you are a Salsa music lover, you will certainly enjoy D.J. Robby?s selections. D.J. Robby is well known within the salsa community for his preference for high energy Salsa. He plays it the majority of the time, intermingled by some merengue throughout the night.
Along with the music, you will also enjoy watching the skillful turns, flips and spins, which characterize the now famous L.A. style of Salsa dancing and which so many dancers at Giggles are mastering. If you have been wanting to learn the L.A. Salsa dancing style, Giggles could be the perfect place for you to begin! Abel Pena teaches beginner Salsa on Thursdays from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., for a $10 cover charge that includes a full night of music and dancing until 2 a.m.
Thursday night?s ambiance at Giggles is great, people are friendly, and everyone seems to have agreed to start the weekend early. You will certainly enjoy yourself!
