May 2018  -  The SalsaNewYork.com web site is being discontinued by the current owners/hosts, Steve Shaw & Manny Siverio.  At first, we ran into major technical difficulties last month, but even after some partial solutions were found, we realized the time has come for us to finish our work.  SalsaNewYork has covered the NYC scene for the dancers for 20 years, non-stop.  Especially for me, running the calendars, it has been a lot of work to list an increasing number of events, but it was a great pleasure to help you salsa lovers find where to go dancing, and it came out of my passion for classic salsa music and dancing.  For those of you who used SalsaNewYork these many years, we thank you; you made our efforts worthwhile.

But all things must come to an end some day and, for us, it is time to retire, though with many regrets.  It would be nice if another person or team would continue the SalsaNewYork long tradition, either in a similar way or a new approach.  To that end, if anyone is seriously interested in buying the domain name, please email me .  For everyone else, as we always say: See you on the dance floor.  Steve Shaw, aka DJ Doc Salsa, Email:  salsa@nyc.rr.com

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.
