CONTEST! ** WIN $$ ** CONTEST! ** WIN $$ As part of the event, we are hosting 
a "Jack and Jill" dance competition!  We did this at the Fall Gala with 14 
couples and it was a blast, so we're going to do it again!  The way it works 
is people sign up individually, and we pair you with a partner by lottery--you 
don't know who you're going to dance with(!)  Then there are two short dance 
rounds, and winners are selected by audience vote (i.e. the applause-o-meter).  
The winning couple gets $200 cash, and the top four couples all win gift 
certificates to SalsaBoston events.  Come join in the fun!  More details and 
rules on the website.

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

room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

Salsa y Control Dance Company
Celebrating Our 5th Anniversay
******3 part series******

Friday, February 29, 2008 (leap year)
Havana Club hosted by Salsa y Control.
288 Green St. Central Sq. Cambridge, near the red line.

Special Party Celebrating the “Golden Age of Salsa: The 70’s”.
Come on boogie with us and have a psychedelic time!!!

Salsa is not only the captivating music we hear and dance to today. It is a 
social and cultural movement that exploded in the early 70’s, primarily in New 
York City. It was a search for identity for Latin New Yorkers and during that 
process became a way of life. Through a series of efforts to promote Latin 
music at that time, Salsa seemed to be the concept that best captured the 
meaning, feeling, and soul of Afro-Cuban/Latin music. Fania records put 
together some of the best singers and musicians of that era creating what is 
known as the Fania All-Stars. With numerous sold out concerts, Fania All-Stars 
where very influential in having the term Salsa catch on not only in New York 
and the U.S, but throughout the world.

The party will feature:

-From the movie “El Cantante” with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony ***EDWIN 
RIVERA performing his tribute to Roberto Roena from Fania

70s through vintage footage playing on a big screen, photos, concert posters 
of that era and Salsa personalities impersonators. Meet and greet some of your 
favorite artists such as Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, la Lupe, 
Ismael Rivera and many more.
