The New York Salsa Congress plays a big part of keeping not only Salsa alive but supporting the music and dance. Everyone comes to New York to experience the excitement of dancing with the New Yorkers. There is a different flavor when you are in New York.

David Melendez wants you to come and experience the excitement that being in The Big Apple can give you. The New York Salsa Congress is in the heart of mid town Manhattan at the Hilton Hotel.
