¡VAYA! honors NYC's rich traditions of Latin dance and music with movement instruction and concerts tailored for both experienced and beginner dancers. Our accomplished salsa instructor Talia Castro-Pozo will prepare you with the basic steps you'll need to keep up to the spirited songs of the 9-time Grammy Award-winning composer, bandleader, pianist, and Spanish Harlem native, Eddie Palmieri. As the enduring face of the Nuyorican community, Palmieri has long been acknowledged as a living legend of salsa music with a career that encompasses nearly fifty albums and more than half a century of live performance. Renowned for his innovative spirit and constantly evolving sound, Palmieri is the recipient of the Latin Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award and the NEA Jazz Master Award. This ¡VAYA! event places the maestro and his 15-piece orchestra in their natural environment: performing a whirlwind set of sixty years of salsa hits on a public dance floor in the heart of the city.
