About the Event
“All that music and dance history blends seamlessly, couples dancing classic salsa moves, others do the cha cha cha, some managing to dance the merengue to everything, and some just free-styling it. It must be the most joyously cosmopolitan dance floor in all of Southern California.”—Glendale News-Press
