w/ Wanda Rivera y su Orquesta
For seasoned salseros and novices alike, Salsa Caliente! is Philly’s premier salsa nightlife series. Inspired by the New York City club scene of the 60s, Caliente invites dancers of any skill level or walk of life to enjoy the live energy of Latin music together. It’s a vision brought to life by Jesse Bermudez, founder of La Asociación de Músicos Latino Americanos (AMLA) and long-time Painted Bride collaborator.
With his help, The Bride’s theater will once again transform into a sultry cabaret-style dancehall. The evening begins with a group salsa lesson from Maestro Flaco of Flaco’s Dance Factory, at 8 pm and then, once acquainted with the groove, all dancers are welcome to get down the sounds of a live Latin big band at 9:15. This season dance along to Wanda Rivera y su Orquesta.
