About Ahí Nama

Ahí Nama is a community based rueda salsa class in Oakland that welcomes all. Weaving together traditional salsa rueda calls with an Oakland urban flare, prepare to learn exciting Cuban salsa patterns and dance in the OMCA Garden to the calls of el cantante (the singer).

About Friday Nights:

Reconnect with family, friends, and community at OMCA every Friday night. These free events provide a gathering place to come together each week, including live music, hands-on activities, Off the Grid food trucks, and the newly-launched Town Fare Sundeck, featuring an outdoor bar and select bar bites from the cafe menu. Take advantage of late-night access to our galleries and special exhibitions with a Museum ticket, or bring a blanket and lounge in our garden, now open with direct access to Lake Merritt.

Please note, alcoholic beverages must be consumed inside the OMCA campus and outside alcohol is not permitted.

OMCA is committed to providing programs that are accessible, welcoming, and inclusive of our community. Assistive listening devices and wheelchairs are available for checkout on a first come, first served basis at the Ticketing Desk. To request other accommodations, like American Sign Language (ASL), Cantonese, Spanish or another language interpreter, please email [email protected] at least three weeks before the event.
