The Side Street Kids are a wonderful group of "On 2" youth dancers who come out of the Bronx, New York. They are under the guidance of Toni & Carlos Mendoza and their wonderful staff of caring parents. They have performed all throughout the NY area, 2 times at the Puerto Rico Congreso de la Salsa, The West Coast Salsa Congress and have gone on tour twice to Italy. Currently they hold the title of the longest active youth performance group in New York and are proudly carrying mambo into the 21th Century.
