EVENTS AND CLUBS IN THE BRONX -

Be sure to call these events and places before going to them.  We do not follow these events closely.  Some clubs or events may have closed, changed their venue, or may have Latin or salsa only on certain nights.  I have not been to many of these places.  Some of this information comes from flyers I have received in the past, or listings in magazines or the newspaper, or feedback from other dancers.  If you wish to dance "On 2", it may be a good idea to bring your own partner(s), or go with a group of dancers you know, in case there are no other "On 2" dancers at the place who dance in this particular way,  or the people there tend to stay within their own couples or groups.  If you have information that any of these places have closed or no longer Latin music, please contact me at salsa@nyc.rr.com so that I can update our information.  See any additional Bronx events on the Calendars at the top of the main Other Latin Events page.

EVENTS AND PLACES OUTSIDE NEW YORK CITY METROPOLITAN AREA -

Be sure to call these events and places before going to them.  I do not follow these events closely.  Some clubs or events may have closed, changed their venue, or may have Latin or salsa only on certain nights.  I have not been to many of these places.  Some of this information comes from flyers I have received in the past, or listings in magazines or the newspaper, or feedback from other dancers.  If you wish to dance "On 2", it may be a good idea to bring your own partner(s), or go with a group of dancers you know, in case there are no other "On 2" dancers at the place who dance in this particular way,  or the people there tend to stay within their own couples or groups.  If you have information that any of these places have closed or no longer Latin music, please contact me at salsa@nyc.rr.com so that I can update our information.  See any additional events outside of NYC on the Calendars at the top of the main Other Latin Events page.
