Kings of Salsa …11/06/11 Balboa Theatre ….Sunday* 8:00 pm

“Salsa, rumba, mambo, cha cha cha and reggae –

the dancers exercise their mastery of them all to perfection,

as if dancing were as essential to life as breathing and the beating of the heart.”

(Hamburger Abendsplatt)

 Choreographed by

Roclan Gonzalez Chavez,

this stunning new show pays homage to the great Cuban performers

and the dance styles from this intoxicating island,

 with a cool contemporary modern twist showing young Cuba today.

Regarded as one of the best young choreographers in Cuba,

Mr. Chavez has created this show to feature the unique talents of some of the Island’s best dancers,

picked from the cream of Cuba’s top dance companies.

Featuring the very best of Havana’s cool street salsa and hip hop scene

Kings of Salsa

seamlessly mixes traditional Afro-Caribbean moves,

world class contemporary dance and the Cuban classics:

Mambo, Rumba, and Cha Cha Cha.

Backed by the spectacular 9-piece band Cuba Ashire,

who unleash Latin rhythms and stratospheric brass arrangements,

Kings of Salsa

showcases a slice of cool contemporary Cuba never seen before on stage.


Mr. Chavez is one of the most original and inventive choreographers working in Cuba today. He studied contemporary and folkloric dance at the prestigious Cuban National Art School in Havana, and was the only person in his class to be awarded a post graduate scholarship to study choreography.
