Main Street Ottumwa to host Latin Night

Get those dancing shoes ready--Main Street Ottumwa will be hosting its first annual Latin Night this Friday, January 10th.

The event will take place at Appanoose Rapids Brewing Company in downtown Ottumwa.

Latin night will begin at 8:30 p.m. with dance instructions. Dances such as salsa, merengue, and bachata will be taught to guests.

The dance floor will then open at 9 p.m. giving guests an opportunity to showcase their dance moves.

Roxanne Cagwin will be teaching the dance lessons and said a lot of time and effort was put into making the event possible.

"We've been working on this for several months since probably April or May," said Cagwin. "And so with the Main Street organization we just wanted to bring a fun activity to downtown and to also support a local business, Appanoose Rapids. So we just want to bring people downtown to have a good time."

There will be a $5 cover charge at the door.
