DISCLAIMER FOR THE INFORMATION ON THE TWO CALENDARS ABOVE - PLEASE READ ONCE
On the calendars above and the listings below is a listing of other Latin events and clubs which are not on the main CALENDAR for ANY of the following reasons - However, many dancers may enjoy these events so they are worth checking out to see if they are enjoyable for you. Posting of events anywhere on SalsaNewYork.com, a private site, is at our discretion. See our Editorial Policy.
(1) An event may be a local studio practice party or small social which has mostly people from that studio in attendance. Such an event would have a lot of salsa music and all dancers would be On 2 although there may not be a lot of dancers of different levels (including advanced) or from different places. Generally, there should regularly be at least 70 - 75 people present, with a good percentage advanced dancers, in order to be listed on our Main Calendar .
(2) They may have less than 75% of the music played being "medium-speed, classic, mainstream salsa", or the way in which the music is "mixed" may not be enjoyed by the majority of "ON 2 purists" in my judgment. See our Guidelines For DJs & Classic Salsa Song List.
(3) I may have little or no knowledge of the music or the dancers at the event.
(4) They may not yet have established a track record so that I can accurately predict what the event will be like. Or they may have a history of events where the music or conditions kept changing and now cannot be accurately predicted by me with confidence.
(6) For any other reason, they may not be suitable for listing on the main CALENDAR section of this web site, but still may be enjoyable for many mambo dancers.
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 below. 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 On 2 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 firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can update our information.
Special Mention Places - Some salsa dancers have reported enjoying the places listed on the 2 small calendars directly above. Or for some other reason, these places may be worth checking out to see if they meet your taste. Click your mouse on the blue underlined name of each event to get more information. Many other events and places are listed below these 2 small calendars, organized by geographical area. Just scroll down below the calendars.

Be sure to call these events and places before going to them. We have not followed these events closely for years. And they are listed here as non-ON 2 events. Some clubs may have closed, changed their venue, or may have latin or salsa only on certain nights. I have not been to some of these clubs. 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, or the people there tend to stay within their own couples or groups. See any additional Manhattan events on the Calendars at the top of this page.
Dance On 2 Studio Practice Party - 8:30 - 10:30 PM every 1st, 3rd and 5th Friday of each month. Dance On 2 Studio founder and director Melanie Torres invites all On 2 dancers to this practice party where they can try out new moves & refine old ones in a low pressure environment with other partners - Instructors are available to give suggestions and feedback - Wine, chips and dips are included in the $5 admission. For those who take the Beginner Ladies Styling Class on the same day, admission to the practice party is free. Held in a professional dance studio with a good wooden floor. Occasionally, there will be a dance performance. 80% classic salsa plus a little cha cha and bachata put together by Melanie. Held at Pearl Studios, 500 8th Avenue (between 35th & 36th Streets), 12th floor, midtown Manhattan, NYC. Contact info: Melanie Torres - Email DanceOn2Studio@aol.com - Phone - 347-678-6557 - web site www.DanceOn2.com .
El Nuevo Conquistador - Amsterdam Avenue on the corner of 172nd Street. Friday nights from 7:00 PM until very late they have excellent salsa by a great DJ. Very casual place with mainly a mature Dominican crowd who mostly dance On 1. If you want to dance On 2, bring a partner or group. Small dance floor, inexpensive drinks, music is very loud. The place is fairly empty until around 11:00 PM and then it starts to fill up. Again, the music is great!
Gonzales Y Gonzales - 192 Mercer Street (between Bleeker & Houston), NYC. 212-473-8787. Tuesday nights are salsa dancing (7/15). A Mexican restaurant and bar with live bands on certain nights playing a mix of Latin music, some salsa. Depending on the night, especially on the weekends, this club can be very crowded, with pretty chaotic dancing, mostly by a younger crowd that is on "no timing". G & G has a very popular bar scene, and a very eclectic crowd and charged atmosphere. But you may wish to bring partner(s) just to be sure you'll have some mambo company.
www.LatinClubs.com and www.JerseySalsa.com List many Latin music events.
SOB'S - 204 Varick Street, at Houston, NYC. 212-243-4940. Usually salsa evenings are on Mondays and/or Fridays. At other times, SOB's plays a mix of Brazilian, Afro-Latino and some house music. Small dance floor, which can get very crowded. Whatever the music being played on a particular evening, a few of the dancers will know what they're doing, and the rest are just making it up. So there's a lot of bumping and tripping on the dance floor.
