Salsa Night


Are you looking for something fun and new to do this summer? We've got you covered: Salsa Night on Wednesday, June 27 -- an evening of live salsa music and dancing on our beautiful outdoor Garden Terrace

From 6-7pm, we're offering an optional beginner’s dance class in the historic Villa with instructor Ruby Rumbera, where you’ll learn basic footwork, turns, and the fundamentals of leading and following. At 7pm, put your newly found skills to use as the San Jose-based band Latin Heat Salsa Sextet takes us into the night with irresistible rhythms, soaring melodies, and authentic Latin percussion.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase. The crowd will be lively! Come to listen or to learn—or both. It’s sure to be an exceptional night of music and dance at Montalvo, and a perfect way to kick off the summer season.

Donor Profile: Peggy Dozier
Peggy Dozier

This week, we would like to shine a spotlight on one of our very generous and engaged donors, Peggy Dozier! Peggy served for six years as a member of the Montalvo Service Group, is a frequent guest on our ArtVentures, and in 2018 is sponsoring both our Moulin Montalvo gala and Bruce Munro at Montalvo: Stories In Light exhibition. In her own words, this is how and why Peggy became involved with Montalvo:

"I brought my children here over 30 years ago to Yuletide, to see the beautiful handmade crafts, and the villa decked out for the holidays. It was magical! I told myself when I retire I want to be a part of this wonderful place, to volunteer and give back in some way. So I joined the Montalvo Service Group and chaired the Summer Luncheons among other duties, but something was missing. You see, the arts are my passion and what better way to fulfill my focus than to get involved with the art that Montalvo has to offer: teaching math and science through art for children in schools, summer camps for kids, adult art classes, and our residency program which brings artists from all over the world to create their work! It is my pleasure to help support these worthwhile programs and to give the gift of art." 

If you are interested in becoming a Montalvo donor, contact our Development Director Emma Moon at
