DESCRIPTION The longest-running and biggest mambo social in New York, started in 1993, and one of the best!  See  Longest Running & Best Social.  It's got good music played on a great sound system, a large & excellent dance floor, midtown Manhattan location, consistency, and attendance by several hundred On 2 dancers every time, even in snow storms, and that usual includes dancers from out of town and even from other countries.

Large dance studio type space with AC, many willing dance partners at different levels.  99% of the dancers "break On 2".   A full evening of salsa music, with an occasional cha cha, being played by Jimmy as the DJ ,with occasional invited guest DJs, dance teams and bands (see Calendar ). Overall, this is a top notch On 2 event, highly recommended, with a great diversity of dancers coming from different parts of the NY/NJ metro area as well as national & international visitors.  Dress is very casual;  in fact, dress to sweat!  This is a "3  t-shirt event".
