DESCRIPTION Every summer since 2000, instructors and performers Carlos Konig and Almyra Ayos present this outdoor salsa dancing event in Central Park in the huge space in front of the Naumburg Bandshell.  It's a very nice "park dancing event" where everyone comes dressed for the summer, and people can bring friends and family.  There are park benches and grass nearby plus lots of park-goers strolling by, many of whom join in the dancing and listening to the classic salsa played on a pro sound system.
