Nuevotec Productions brings Salsa to the World

Posted on November 27th, 2008 by by Dany J

During the last decade, the internet has been a crucial tool in the movement of Salsa dancing. Social networking and video sharing websites have given dancers the ability to make artistic connections and share their footage of Salsa dancing. Mainly, sites like Myspace, Facebook and Youtube make communication very easy at the user level. However, at the professional level there are a few companies that feature our Salsa passion as a legitimate artistic endeavor.

Nuevotec Productions, a “videography” company based in southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, has made an outstanding contribution to promote Salsa dancing and help inspire enthusiasts around the world. Simply, the Nuevotec team – Allan, Harry and Dimas – cover Salsa events, socials and congresses. Their footage of performances, social dancing and interviews is featured in Nuevotec.com. The following are some of my favorite videos.

Photos of Club Paradise Salsa Reunion

Posted on November 18th, 2008 by by Dany J

Before there was a New York Salsa Congress, there was Club Paradise. After nearly a decade, the Salsa dancers of Club Paradise reunited at 360 Lounge on November 13th, 2008. Older, wiser and with fancier moves, veteran dancers met younger dancers at 360 Lounge. The guestlist that Lenny put together was top-notch as promised. Below, there are 4 sets of pictures to prove it (Courtesy of Tommy Torres, NuevoTec Productions, and Junior Montalvo). It was an honor to host New Jersey’s best Salsa dancers.
