There’s nothing like salsa and sangria to spice up the middle of the week.

Starting tonight, Lucharitos Taqueria & Tequila Bar is partnering with Main Stage Dance Academy to bring “Salsa, Salsa & Sangria” night to Greenport. The event offers patrons a chance to learn to how to salsa dance while enjoying complimentary sangria and chips and salsa.

“There is not an experience in life that Latin dancing can’t make better,” Main Stage Dance Academy director Lucille Naar-Saladino said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Since opening in January, restaurant owner Marc LaMaina has been organizing special events that reflect Mexican culture. He hopes to make “Salsa, Salsa & Sangria” night an ongoing event in the village.

“This is a great fit,” he said about the partnership with Main Stage Dance Academy. “Teaming up with another business in Greenport is wonderful.”

Main Stage Dance Academy instructor Lia Daniele will teach the half-hour class starting at 9:30 p.m. at 
Lucharitos, located at 119 Main St.
 in Greenport. Ms. Daniele teaches ballet, jazz and hip-hop at the academy and specializes in Latin dancing, Ms. Naar-Saladino, said.

The event costs $20 and is opened to singles and couples of any skill level. Space is limited. Customers are asked to RSVP by posting on the event’s Facebook wall.
