salsa dance workshop

Thirty-year veteran percussionist  Sammy DeLeon  and his crew love sharing the history and characteristics of their music with audiences.
Latin jazz, salsa and merengue – the latter originating in the Dominican Republic – comprise a highly danceable set led by DeLeon, once described by Latin music legend Tito Puente as “the hottest and most innovative timbalero.”

Ticket holders may enjoy a
6:30 p.m. salsa dance workshop
led by instructor
Mambo Marci.


The Arab American National Museum’s Public Programming plays a dynamic role in the preservation and celebration of the cultural heritages of all people.
They
value the arts not only as an aesthetic expression of the human experience, but also as a tool that empowers all people and instills community pride.
Through the arts,
we all hope to build bridges that span racial, cultural and ethnic divisions.
With these goals in mind the Museum’s Public Programming
embraces all cultural art forms.

Presented in partnership with

BombaRica 

and made possible in part by the

National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC).
