EL ESPÍRITU DE LA SALSA follows lonely hearts from all over New York City – an E.R. Doctor from Battery Park, a Construction Contractor from Queens, an Equities Trader from Wall Street, a Policeman from Midtown, to a Chronic Fatigue Sufferer from Washington Heights, among others – as they come together at Spanish Harlem’s Santo Rico Dance School to let loose, dance and connect while learning the rich art of salsa. Under the tutelage of teacher Tomas Guerrero, they have only six weeks to rehearse for a public performance. Featuring music by Tito Puente, Eddie Santiago, Norah Jones, and more.
