Georgina from our UK team is a huge Salsa fan. She spends most weekends frequenting London’s best Salsa clubs. There will be more tips from George on how to see the very best of Latin London, but this post is about her recent staring role.

Last summer I was lucky enough to be asked to be an extra in the UK’s first salsa based rom-com movie featuring Nick Frost, Chris O’Dowd, Ian McShane, Olivia Coleman, Kayvan Novak and Rashida Jones.

My good friends are the film’s choreographers and salsa dancers who appear prominently in the film (and on the promo poster!!) and it was through them I got to be an extra as a dancer in a salsa club scene! I have just seen the latest trailer and spotted myself at the end  – I have my hair tied up and I am wearing a black top with silver and gold sequins.
