OUSS Winter Masquerade Ball


Oxford's Winter Salsa ball

Welcome to Oxford's Winter Salsa ball

For the first time ever, the Oxford University Salsa Society are presenting the Oxford Salsa Masquerade this winter. We want to celebrate the end of a fantastic term with a huge and glamorous social. It will take place in the beautiful setting of the Oxford Modern Art Gallery.

The night will start with some salsa and bachata workshops led by your favourite Oxford teachers, followed by social dancing until 1:30. There will be separate salsa/chachacha and bachata/kizomba rooms (both open until 01:30) with music played by your favourite local DJs and supported with live percussion. If you’re still full of energy, you can head to the Oxford Retreat for our informal afterparty. Drinks, including delicious cocktails, are available from the galleries bar and can be purchased using cash or card.
