TYPE OF EVENT & VENUE This is a very enjoyable "hard-core uptown" salsa social held in a very large newly renovated dance studio which attracts dancers of all levels, including some very advanced ones & instructors/performers, from NY, CT and NJ.   The excellent music is a wide selection of different styles and eras of very danceable salsa.  There is definitely an "uptown" Latino atmosphere here representing the authentic flavor and roots of our New York style On 2 mambo.  And the MC is the one and only famous Levi "La Lena"
 
MUSIC Almost entirely pure classic salsa plus a little cha cha, bachata & merengue.
DANCE PERFORMANCES Almost always, usually local and out-of-town mambo teams perform. They are listed on our Main Calendar.
DJ Usually music is DJd by Yamulee's resident DJs,  DJ Osmar Perrones and DJ "Doc Salsa" Steve Shaw (from www.SalsaNewYork.com),  DJ Amauri Guillen and DJ Jose.  See our Main Calendar for DJs on any particular date.
BAND None.
DANCE FLOOR Very large new wooden studio dance floor which is generally "medium speed".  However, when the weather and the dancing gets really hot, the floor can become "a bit slower".  So wear your "medium" to "more slippery" shoes.
PRICES Regular admission is $12 - $15.  Sometimes it is a few dollars more, based on special features of the social for that night.
BEVERAGES AND FOOD Beverages for sale such as water, Gatorade, etc. 
DRESS CODE Let's call it "street hot or classy casual".  Everyone is free to come as they are, but many people dress hot or flashy or sexy in a casual street style.  Above all, come to dance hard to the excellent music.

DANCE TIMING

Entirely "New York On 2" timing and style.

DESCRIPTION Presented by Osmar Perrones and the staff of the Yamulee Dance Studio and Dance Company at their own newly renovated big facility, this Yamulee Social has been running since 2003.  They invite all mambo dancers to come and enjoy the dance performances by invited groups and lots of classic salsa by the resident DJs on their professional sound system.  The music mix is one of the best and most versatile of any mambo social in NYC, spanning the broad range of salsa styles that are actually heard in the NYC Latino communities, and also including some occasional well-chosen bachata & merengue.  And the dancers range from basic beginners to some of the best in New York City, including many Latinos.  And the MC is the one and only famous Levi "La Lena".  No age limits.  See our Calendar for the list of performing dance teams and DJs. 

The very large dance floor is wood and it is about "medium speed" so wear appropriate shoes.  Beverages will be available for sale.  The location of the studio is right next to the nearby train station in a residential/commercial neighborhood in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx, a convenient trip on the D train express.
