We are determined to provide you with a dance and musical experience that will be unforgettable! We aim to do so by bringing you a wealth of exceptional dancers, live bands and carefully planning every detail to ensure that every step of your experience will be enjoyable.
New York City is the capital of the world, is home to over 8 million people, and has world famous attractions including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Theatre District, the Fashion District, Lincoln Center, the N.Y. Yankees Stadium, Madison Square Garden and Times Square, to name just a few. Accordingly, we’ve chosen to present the 2016 NYISC at the extraordinary Marriott Marquis located in the heart of Times Square! New York City is also the home of world-renowned salsa dancers and dance teaching institutions in a variety of different disciplines. Moreover, latin music and dance has a rich history in New York City that is truly worthy of exploration.
We welcome you to join to us at the 2016 NEW New York Salsa Congress so that you can experience this glorious city, its dancing, its music, its people and all of the amazing attractions it has to offer. We look forward to seeing you all on the dance floor!
