Salsa y Control
Salsa y Control, a local small business with locations in both Allston and Cambridge, is one of the most beloved dance companies in the area, offering top quality and easy-to-follow instruction to get you on the dance floor in no time. Their classes provide a fun and welcoming environment for everyone of all levels. They also have performance opportunities where dancers are inspired to gain more confidence and reach their fullest potential. “Salsa y Control'' originated in 1999 with Johnny and Andres, two brothers who perform amazing duets with unique, intricate salsa footwork combinations. Salsa y Control later expanded to include partner dance performances with Johnny and Felicita. In 2003, the three established what we know today as "Salsa y Control Dance Company." Their drive came from the desire to inspire others to express inner emotion through the art of dance. In 2008, the Salsa y Control Dance Studio opened its doors in Allston under Andres and Leah. Today, Salsa y Control has grown to be one of the biggest dance companies in Boston with over 80 performing members for multiple dance teams and they continue to offer classes in Allston and Cambridge.
