DESCRIPTION

This event is presented by veteran salsero Vittico "La Magia" Pacheco who has been on our local mambo scene for many years.  He has performed with many different dance teams in the past and now directs his own very unique group The Vittico "La Magia" Dancers which has performed internationally.  He has been an instructor in the Bronx for a long time and has a dedicated following.  See his instructor page with teaching information at Vittico's Classes.

This event at the Montecarlo Room is a true "uptown" style mambo event with excellent music frequented by dancers from all over the City.  Vittico and his crew of performers and students from his studio welcome everyone to come and party every Thursday night in the Boogie Down Bronx, "El Condado de la Salsa".

OTHER INFORMATION Age 21 with ID required for admission to the club.

Please Note:  Commercial clubs are established to please their customers & make a profit.  If they get enough complaints or suggestions, they will often make changes.  As mambo dancers, you should make every effort to let the management & DJ know what type of music you want to hear, what volume & lighting conditions you want, how the dance floor should be, etc.  If enough salsa lovers give their opinions to management & DJs, they will listen. 

Also, since commercial clubs have high expenses and need to make a profit in order to stay open and continue playing lots of salsa, they will therefore cater to the customers who spend the most money.  Mambo dancers can help get what they want by spending more money at the bar, even if it's sodas, fruit juices, virgin cocktails, water, sports drinks.  You may think you're smart by not buying anything at a club, or sneaking in a bottle of water or liquor, but actually you are pushing them to play more merengue, bachata, Reggaeton & English music, because customers who prefer this music spend more money at the bar.  If you want commercial clubs to feature more salsa nights, you have to pay for it by purchasing beverages at the bar.  This is just simple economics.  www.SalsaNewYork.com is not affiliated with any events or clubs;  we are just being realistic.
