Octavio Figueroa y la Combinacion performed at the Center Stage Theatre in Fontana on March 19.

Center Stage is a great venue for Thursday Salsa that starts at 7 p.m. with a dance class with Evie Quinones and continues with social dancing until midnight. Selected Thursdays include live music. Cover charge is $5 before 9 p.m. and $7 thereafter. Recorded music is selected by Deejay JorgeH.

The dancers are mostly at beginner and intermediate levels. There are a few advanced dancers but not many. It is a good place to go if you’re learning to dance; if you like your dance steps fancier, you may want to bring along a dance partner.

If you like to listen to music, Center Stage is a great location. It has comfortable seating and good lighting and sound. I enjoyed listening to La Combinacion perform Octavio’s original instrumental piece entitled “Gaviota.” It gave the trumpets a moment to shine.
