    Which of the two styles is more preferable?

    Hi Joy,

    we have very few cuban dancers in istanbul and there is only 1 weekly cuban party.
    majority of the scene is LA style dancers.

    Hello Olamalam,

    I see you are the person to ask about salsa in Istanbul.
    I'm currently visiting and I was wondering if you know where to go dance Kizomba or if the 100% Cubano party is happening this weekend. I'm staying until Sunday.

    Thank you

    Sorry guys, I was on vacation last week with limited internet access.

    Yes, the most stable party in istanbul is the CVK hotel one on Fridays.
    @Carlos O , on tuesdays we have a kizomba party in Taksim, sheva club.
    @Ekaterina , one dance in Mecidiyekoy is close to your address + their instructors speak in English. I think it's best for you.

    Ps. It was great to see @thepresenceon2 after 5 years :)

    you stay in bomonti. it's close to mecidiyekoy and taksim. on Friday CVK is on. I need to check other days. But as far as I can see, istanbul scene is seriously damaged by salsa schools brutal competition. 3 years ago we had party everyday. then schools started to put their parties to "the best nights of the week" which are friday and saturday. this divided the dancers who goes to parties. Eventually we've got smaller parties. Some of the schools had to close their parties due to lack of dancers bla bla. I knew this would happen one day but didnt know when :)
