Hosted by Emanuel Blackett and music by world renown Afro Latin Funk dancer Frankie Martinez. Abakua is a social that has it’s own unique flavor. The music consists of 60s and 70s Salsa, Boogaloo and ChaChaCha. You’ll hear rhythms at this party that you will never hear another DJ play. There are rarely any performances and they do not play bachata at this social. The dancers here are excellent and there is usually live percussion. It’s a very nice studio with very well kept wooden floors and a full bar. The social is only held once a month on the 4th Friday.
Complimentary dance lesson at 9:30pm.
