OLD SCHOOL SALSA DANCING EVENTS


For many decades here in NYC, way before the current Eddie Torres "On 2" style, there have been the very
popular "old school" or "street style" salsa venues & dancers.  The music is mostly pure classic salsa songs with lyrics,
medium tempo, with an occasional cha cha.  And the style of dancing is called "on clave", with various
timings and simple styles, mainly focused on the rhythms & lyrics of the music and the dancing connection
with one's partner.  Many old school dancers are Latino; they know the lyrics & sing along.  Below is a calendar of those events.

Many thanks to Lucy Ortiz for her great list of salsa events which she has done for years & is widely respected
for her knowledge of what's happening in the salsa scene.  Click Here, then go to "More" and then "Notes".
Thanks also to Annie La Salsera for keeping me posted with the flyers for many old school dances.

Please Note:  These calendars below are not updated frequently; we don't have dependable communication
with the events, which means that specific weekly changes are not listed here.  To know if there is some special
feature on a particular night, or if an event has been changed, cancelled or discontinued, please contact the venue.
