So You Think You Can’t Salsa? – NY Times

Posted on August 29th, 2008 by by Dany J

Flash News! Extra! Extra! The Scarlet Mambo team and yours truly were quoted/mentioned in an article, So You Think You Can’t Salsa? in the New York Times.

“Salsa has its own networks. At clubs and socials, dancers promote their events. Camila Danielle Sanchez, 25, who was at the Chelsea social, teaches in Highland Park, N.J., near New Brunswick, where she and her partner, Dany Joshua, also host a salsa night called “Scarlet Mambo.” “If you look at the fliers,” Mr. Joshua said, “the dancers are organized. It’s a lot of ‘I’ll come support you,’ and a lot of ‘you come support me.’ Everything revolves around certain Web sites, and a MySpace and a Facebook effect has also taken place. It used to be rude to hand out fliers; now when it ends you’ll see everyone hand them out.”
