CANCELLED — Sincere apologies. Unfortunately The Portico is having to cancel El Swing on May 14th due to essential soundproofing work that needs to be done.

Kalima Project’s mission is to share the rich Latin American musical heritage with the London community. Their heart and soul is from Colombia and they combine the intricate and pulsating rhythms of Salsa and Cuban music, as well as Cumbia. 

Our Colombia-born Salsa teacher, Yamile, gets the hips moving with her all-comers Salsa Dance Class from 7.30, followed by the club night with El Swing DJs and Kalima Project.

The DJs (on rotation): Johnny G, Dave Hucker, Carey Lyseight and Gerry Lyseight have hosted some of London’s most legendary club nights: Sol Y Sombra, Salsa Fusión, Latin Swing at Wessex House, Mambo Inn, Villa Stefano, as well as lighting up Notting Hill Carnival with the Latin Rave Sound System.

7.30 – 8.30: Yamile leads her swinging all-comers Salsa Dance Class
