Brothers Johnny and Andres Giraldo, originators of Salsa y Control, gear up for the group’s 20th Anniversary as gracious, welcoming hosts of this fun-filled event that includes expert DJs, performance demonstrations and audience participation as part of an immersive experience in the contagion of Latin-American salsa culture.
Salsa y Control is Boston’s premier and one of the most beloved dance companies in the area. 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, SyC has grown to be one of the biggest dance companies in Boston with over 80 performing members for multiple dance teams and classes offered in both Allston and Cambridge.
