Boise dancers are casting aside their unitards and throwing on their ruffled dresses and high heels for Fiesta Tropical at the Knitting Factory. The event promises spicy dance performances from Idaho Dance Theater, DROP Dance Collective, Balance Dance Company, the Treasure Valley Institute for Children's Arts and the Trey McIntyre Project starting at 7 p.m. Hot on the heels of the dance show, beginner Latin dance lessons in salsa, merengue and bachata begin at 8 p.m.
In true Latin style, the party continues on until the wee hours with DJ Giovanni on the tables and plenty of space to dip and twirl on the dance floor among members of the dance companies.
Saturday, Sept. 26, 6 p.m.-midnight, $10 adults, $5 kids, Knitting Factory Concert House, 416 S. Ninth St., 208-367-1212. For more information or to buy tickets, visit bo.knittingfactory.com.
