Although this event was actually held on the mainland in Playa del Carmen, it also honored several important people in the Cozumel Salsa community too. Montwono Dance Company hosted this award ceremony and dance social to honor those who play an important part in the Salsa community throughout the whole Yucatan peninsula. Dance companies from Merida, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Cozumel all came together to recognize those who've been an inspiration to local dancers. Special awards were given to Cozumel peeps: DJ Salsero Erick Ramirez for being an outstanding salsa DJ, to Julio and Carolina for popular salsa dance couple in Cozumel, and to Arcelia and Nau as Salsa Icons from Salsa Fusion in Cozumel. Congratulations amigos!

Moshe from Aventura Dance in Florida has outdone himself this time. The Cozumel Beach Party was a huge success with perfect sunny weather, lots of bikini clad Salseras, and plenty of Salsa, Bachata, and Dance music on the beach. Senor Frogs 1/2 was the scene of the party again this year. Big name Salseros such as Nery Garcia, Selene and Rodrigo, Alberto Torres, and Emily and Junior all made appearances at the party. Of course Cozumel Salseros wouldn't miss such a big event, and had special passes to join the fiesta! Check out the photo gallery here.

This past Saturday, May 19, the Salsa Orchestra "La Seleccion" from Cancun was invited by Salsa Fusion and Carlos n Charlies for a special party. This is the not the first time we've been treated to their hard core Salsa tunes, as they were last here on the island in October of last year. This time they were featuring a new singer and flautists, Lisandry Serra Martinez, as a new group addition. They played songs such as "Ella menea" and "Yo No Sé Mañana". Although they are best known for their Timba tunes, they do also play more classic tunes as well. The band played 3 sets while local Salseros danced until 4am! The house was packed and there was little room on the dance floor while the band played. Dancers joined us from Playa del Carmen and Cancun. Special guests Cuban Salsa Instructor Ramon from Mexico City also joined local Salseros on the floor to show off some of his expert skills. For pictures, see the gallery here.
