Latin Mondays at Taj is one of NYC’s most popular salsa dance parties on Mondays from 7pm to 1am (5pm doors). From $10
The party celebrates its quinceanera (15th birthday) on Mon, Nov 22.
It’s hosted by Talia Castro-Pozo, a classical ballerina and entertainer originally from Peru. There are always great DJs and usually live bands too. You can start your evening with dinner and a dance lesson.
One of the things we noticed about Latin Mondays at Taj is that everybody dances with everybody. That means you’ll always have a good time – even if you go alone. And if you are learning to dance salsa, you learn quickly because you get to dance with good dancers. Not all dance parties are like that. The credit goes to the organizer Talia. (She can really dance and teach too!)
We’d much rather dance in a bar or restaurant than in a dance studio. This is where NYC salseros are on Monday nights.
