Hilton offers ‘Drift & Dance’ salsa show, lessons every Saturday


Latin dance lessons and shows shake up the Drift lounge at the Pattaya Hilton every Saturday.

The weekly “Drift & Dance” event got underway July 9 with hotel Marketing Director Dhaninrat Klinhom welcoming Thai starlet Kamala Kamphu Na Ayudhaya as the night’s “student of honor.”

After an entertaining bartending show, the Ministry of Dance troupe, led by Filipino dancer Jo Jo, warmed up the floor with a varied selection of Latin American dance performances as guests enjoyed the buffet.

Kamala and her dance partner then stepped up for a short show before the floor was turned over to amateurs to try their moves.

Jo Jo proved a willing teacher and in no time students were showing up their salsa steps. A casual contest gave the brave among the crowd a chance to test their skills.

In all the evening proved humorous and entertaining.

It repeats each Saturday night at Drift, on the Hilton’s upper lobby level.
