I had such a fun birthday weekend in New York! Evan surprised me with this trip and with an afternoon of salsa in the middle of Manhattan. Just like in Toronto there are lots of salsa related events both indoors and outdoors that are free and available for everyone to enjoy. This specific event was an afternoon live salsa session in a beautiful courtyard in midtown at 600 Third Ave.

The band was an all-woman band called Cocomama and they were awesome! The played mostly salsa with some cha cha cha and it was sexy, jazzy and very nice to dance to in the middle of the afternoon. The courtyard was packed although I was surprised that we were one of the only couples dancing. If you are interested in checking out the band website click here.

If you are in New York make sure you get in some salsa/mambo. It is a fabulous experience!
