JoelSalsa is more than thrilled to be featured on Telemundo prime time news on April 30th 2015 directly after the Billboard Latin Music Awards!

Victoria Sosa from Telemundo reached out to our Salsa & Bachata school to do a segment on our Bachata classes in NYC.

She expressed to us that she wanted to show how much Bachata dancing has grown here in NYC and around the world.

We of course, as a school who already plays a major role in the dance community with our Salsa classes in NYC, jumped on the opportunity to show how much Bachata has become popular as well at our studio.

We couldn’t be happier with the piece that was showcased on television!

Have a look for yourself. Maybe you can catch a glimpse of yourself on TV!
