Latin dance and culture shakes things up in Central New York.
Five years after La Familia de la Salsa emerged on the dance scene, the organization has become one of the largest and highly successful Latin dance groups in Central New York. Brian Bromka, Founder and Artistic Director, formed La Familia around the same time he decided to leave his career as a real estate investor and begin teaching Salsa. His passion for Latin music and culture inspired him to connect with others through dancing.
