The Salsa Loca Club is a student-run organization at Sacramento State that provides Latin dance lessons for the Sacramento community members. They offer lessons in Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Kizomba, and Cumbia. To kick off the event, Salsa Loca will have a guest choreographer come in and teach easy to follow dance lessons. The salsa dance lessons are followed by a special concert with the Grammy-Award winning band, the Pacific Mambo Orchestra.
