10:00 AM Japanese Style Pottery Show An exhibition of work by San Diego Potters' Guild members showcasing the influence of Japanese ceramics, historical and contemporary, on the work they do today.

The show explores how millennia of Japanese ceramic history live on in contemporary San Diego studios.

Space is limited for this reason so please reserve your spot and see the most up-to-date info and schedule.

My time studying dance in Latin America and New York, made me fall in love with all Salsa has to offer people. In these Salsa classes, I explore the world of Salsa with you- musicality, movement, styling, and frame. These classes help beginner-intermediate dancers begin to understand how to dance with all the facets of Salsa and get comfortable enough to dance it socially.
