Talia Castro-Pozo is NYC’s Salsa Woman
Talia Castro-Pozo is a Peruvian classical ballerina who Latina Magazine called “The Woman of Salsa.” She comes from Escuela Nacional de Ballet Peru, and from New York City Ballet’s School of American Ballet. Talia is a dancer and actress who appears in commercials for America’s leading brands.
In New York, Talia is one of the top salsa dance organizers. Her events include the Bryant Park Dance Party, Midtown Dance, Latin Mondays at Taj, and Sunset Salsa with Talia on Pier 45. Talia is also a New York Latin Culture Magazine guest curator. Thank you Talia.
In many social dance traditions, good dancers won’t dance with beginners. What we noticed at Talia’s events is that everybody dances with everybody. It’s about having fun, not showing off. That buena onda (good vibe) comes from the dance organizer, Talia.
You can learn all kinds of dances with Talia on Tuesdays and then dance salsa on Thursdays.
The location is Greeley Square Plaza, on the pedestrian section of Broadway called Broadway Boulevard, on Sixth Avenue at 33rd St near Herald Square.
