Special guest, "Mr. Salsa", Izzy Sanabria is coming in from Tampa, FL to be the Master of Ceremonies for our Friday and Saturday Dances! At our Saturday workshops (March 28), Izzy will present a FREE multimedia presentation of the 1970’s salsa revolution followed by a question and answer session.

Izzy will be bringing a film crew with him to Pittsburgh, as they continue to document his life and contributions to the salsa industry. They will be filming both nights at the Cabaret and also at his presentation at the Saturday workshops...this Feature Documentary is slated for release later this year! You may have an opportunity to be included in the footage of this documentary movie!

***Salsa Fridays at the Cabaret*** Please note some IMPORTANT "TEMPORARY" CHANGES: During the run of the new show (Boeing Boeing) at the Cabaret, we will have to start the night later due to the long run-time of the show. We will not be able to offer the basic dance lesson in order to begin dancing around 10:45 pm. The cover charge will be lowered to $3.00 to make up for these changes. Doors will open at approximately 10:45 pm. The show runs until the end of April. We will resume the basic dance lesson after that time.
