Sin Salsa, No Hay Paraíso
A little salsa is the perfect medicine if you’ve been losing your mind while stuck at home. Like the Gran Combo de Puerto Rico sings, “Sin salsa, no hay paraíso” (There is no paradise without salsa).
Club salsa in New York City is one thing, but in the Caribbean we dance with our families. In Cali, Colombia, stage salsa is part of family culture. It’s an expression of belonging to the community and your individuality within the community. Families who dance salsa together stay together. And its something you can enjoy your entire life.
Salsa is African through the Caribbean, but everybody dances salsa. You don’t have to be Latin. Ernesto and Denisse will help you shine with your own flavor, something sabroso (tasty). Who knows, some day on the dance floor, you might even find your own little slice of paradise.

To brighten your day, all we need is salsa.
