One of our long-time salsa community members Wanda Santiago (Rivera) suffered a fire at her home last week. Her family got out ok but otherwise it was a total loss. As we have done in the past, we're hoping to use the power of our community to help one of our own. For tho...se of you who don't know Wanda, she has been dancing in the Boston scene for a long time especially during the formative years that have helped make the Boston scene what it is today. She was a principle dancer with the Melaza Dance Company and well-known for her styling and huge smile! We're holding a benefit night at Ryles Wed April 11 and ask all of you to come support and enjoy a fun night as well. April Genovese from NYC will be here to hold one of her famous Ladies Styling classes to start the night. We have performances from Mambo Slaves featuring Grey and Sharon, Salsa y Control with Johnny Felicita and Andres, Salsa y Control Estilo and more. Raffle prizes from Burju Shoes, Masacote Classes, A full year Club Caribe Pass, Workout session from WikidFit, Sephora Make Up, Hairstyling from Desiree and more. We're still putting everything together so expect a few more surprises. I promise lots of dancing with all your favorite dancers and great music. Big thanks to Ryles for making this possible.We're asking for a Donation at the door of $10 and an extra $7 for the Ladies Styling Class. Please spread the word and thanks in advance for your support of one of our dancers in a time of need.
