During Latin Street Dancing’s Tropical Thursdays, audiences sway and saunter to the award-winning sounds of Brooklyn’s Willy Torres in a high-stepping evening of dance and music. Doors open at 8 p.m., where the spirited senseis of Latin Street Dancing provide a complimentary beverage before inspiring salsa lessons from Lisa “La Boriqua” transform feet into suave roller skates at 9 p.m. After audiences have learned the moves, they get to show off their newfound strut to the locomotive sounds of singer and salsa master Willy Torres at 10:30 p.m. An eight-time Grammy nominee and three-time winner, Willy intrinsically entices cha cha chas with boisterous bongos and a seductive voice that sends feet and cocktail umbrellas airborne. Attendees can cheer on the Bailes Tropicales dance contest semifinals at 11:30 p.m. as they watch and learn from merengue masters. All guests receive a copy of Willy’s full-length album Hardcore, allowing them to practice salsa steps while at home or loitering in abandoned jetways.
