You certainly do not have to be an expert salsa dancer to enjoy a night of dancing to some of the greatest salsa tunes. In fact, over at La Peña, they are having a salsa party especially designed for those who are not the next champs of So You Think You Can Dance. Sure, it's a Monday, but let's face it, considering our current political climate, we all need a distraction. Get a partner and your dancing shoes, and start the night with a free beginner's salsa class at 8, followed by a dance party at 9 with live music courtesy of Orquesta La Peña. The party is only $5, and of course there's beer and wine to quench your thirst, so make sure to bring some cash. La Peña is also trying to raise $20,000 by Aug. 31 in order to close its fiscal year without debt. Those interested in contributing to the fundraiser can visit LaPena.org/donate.

Monday August 28, 8pm, $5, cash only, La Peña Cultural Center, 3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, LaPena.org
