Welcome to the 2017 New York International Salsa Congress website!
The 2017 edition will take place from August 31 - September 3, 2017, once again at the spectacular New York Marriott Marquis in the center of Times Square.
Last year, on Labor Day Weekend, thousands of dance and music aficionados descended on Times Square in the spectacular Marriott Marquis to witness the REBIRTH of the New York International Salsa Congress. Starting on Sunday, NYISC Salsa Week featured a week-long series of cultural and educational events, followed by the glamorous NYISC Official Pre-Party, and culminating in the 2016 NYISC, under a new ownership team who worked incredibly hard to create a congress featuring fresh and exciting new elements while maintaining the traditions of this important annual event. By all accounts, the 2016 NYISC lived up to these traditions and exceeded all expectations, resulting in an unforgettable dance and music experience for thousands that attended from nearly every U.S. state and over 40 countries worldwide.
This year, the 2017 NYISC promises to build on this foundation and take it to the next level. Taking place once again in the HEART of Times Square at the extraordinary Marriott Marquis, you will feel that you are dancing in the center of the world. We’ve upgraded to the larger Broadway Ballroom for an even more extraordinary dance experience.
