We're looking for an marketing intern or two to help us this spring.  The position carries some pay and some commission.  If you're interested in joining the team, send me a couple paragraphs about yourself and a resume of sorts if you have one handy.

See you on the dancefloor!

* Have you checked out Masa?  If you're up for a casual night and some dining and an upscale bar, this place is cool on Thursdays.  Casual lesson around 10pm, a mix of music, no cover.  439 Trement St, South End, Boston

* If you missed the Congress or if you enjoyed it but didn't make it to the congress shop, the DVD will be out by mid November at the latest and probably sooner, and also Congress embroidered shirts (mens and ladies), caps, and hand towels are available.  We still have a lot of things to pay for this year, so every purchase helps out.  Shirts and the video are $20 each, and the caps and towels $10.  Buy any two and you get $5 off, so the video and a shirt would be $35. www.salsaboston.com/congress/shop

Close to the green line (St. Mary's on the C train, Fenway on the D, Kenmore on the B), plenty of street and lot parking.

Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there regularly, it is very tasty and modestly priced.

Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev-Mac Daddy in the front portion of the bar when you walk in, but don't let that scare you... Salsa is in the back room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

Best Wishes,



This Thursday at Temporada Latina/Ryles marks the kick-off of our month long Taxi Dancers fundraiser for Shriners Hospital for Children!

Throughout the month of February we are bringing back "Taxi Dancing", a popular practice from the 20's! We'll have male and female "Taxi Dancers" that you can "hire" to dance with you for a dance ($3) or for a 15 minute semi-private lesson ($30). (I am firming up the taxi dancer schedule and will forward the information to you shortly.)

How it works: 1) Buy dance coupons from the "dispatcher" at the door. 2) Present the coupon to an available Taxi Dancer you want to dance with at the beginning of the song. The Taxi Dancers will wear special T-shirts while "on duty"! Taxi dancing is from 10:30 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. each Thursday in February.

This is a great opportunity to dance with someone you have never had a chance to dance with, to get pointers from Boston's best dance instructors, and to raise money for a worthy cause while dancing!

For more information on the fundraiser, look for "Taxi Dancer" flyers this Thursday at Temporada Latina/Ryles.

This week's DJ: DJ Latino (Antonio Ortiz).

I look forward to sharing the dance floor with you.
