What we're about

Public Group

We love to host Salsa Night to teach, enjoy, dance and share our wonderful Salsa with people who like it or want to learn more about it (Although mostly salsa, we do alternate with a bit of Bachata, Rumba, Merengue, Cha Cha, etc.).

A $15 cover charge applies to everybody attending Salsa Night to recoup expenses of space, instructors and staff members payable at the cashier. A 45 minutes beginner lesson and a 45 minutes Intermediate Salsa lesson are always offered plus another session of either bachata / cha cha / rumba or merengue .

A FREE cold drink (it gets hot!) are included and FREE parking is always available both in front and behind the units.

Thank you for your support so we can continue hosting this fun group!

ABOUT SALSA:

On August 26th, 1971 New York City gave birth to a sound that would change the face of Latin music forever. That evening at the renown Cheetah Nightclub, The FANIA ALL-STARS hit the stage with their unique sound that would echo across all borders and reach all countries. The music that was played that night would forever change Latin music. This film (Our Latin Thing) shot all over Spanish Harlem in New York City, explores the musical celebrations of the city's Puerto Rican population. Among the many artists featured are Johnny Pacheco,
Pete 'El Conde' Rodriguez, and Ismael Miranda. Featuring mostly musical performances, this Spanish-language film has English subtitles for the few occasions when a narration is provided. One of the delights of this film is the uncensored glimpse it gives into this lively and highly musical community. This free form film classic is now fully remastered with much improved sound. Now available 40 years later and more relevant than ever.
