Community : Patricia Paz announces the Reopening of SalsaTangoSon
Posted by admin on 2007/12/27 12:10:00 (1722 reads)


Over the year since my SalsaTangoSon web site opened, thanks to Michael Beck from Midwestlatino, I have had the chance to think about what most of my students were asking for. Therefore I decided to try a new format and an update of my website. In addition to information about instruction, and events, the new site will have information about Cuba and Argentina - all about their culture, their people and especially their dances and their music.

The students will also have a place to show their friends and family what they are learning through pictures and video clips that I always take from my classes. You can also leave your testimonial about your experience with SalsaTangoSon. I plan to provide a store for Argentine and Cuban related merchandise and a link to an Argentine Tango Radio station and a Cuban Salsa Radio station.

I’ve been teaching for 18 years, with twelve of those years in the Tri-State area and have great experience, including the advantage of the cultural background of growing up in Buenos Aires, and the one I got for being married to a Cuban bailador for 8 years, to offer current and potential students! 

Our New Tango And Salsa Lessons and Workshops starting in January are ready for you to pre-register.
Go to  and will find all the info in the home page.

I hope you enjoy this new website and also be part of it!
Happy New Year!/ Felices Fiestas para todos!

Events : Latin American Culture Fest @ Cincinnati Museum Center (Nov. 17-18)
Posted by admin on 2007/11/18 10:00:00 (5258 reads)


The seventh annual Latin American Culture Fest took place this weekend at the Cincinnati Museum Center,

This Festival kicked off the 2007-2008 Passport to the World series that allows visitors to see, hear, touch and explore other cultures without leaving Cincinnati. Each Passport celebration highlights one cultural heritage with a variety of displays, activities and performances. The events provide a forum where visitors can interact with and learn about community members of different cultures.

The Rotunda came alive with Hispanic music, dance, arts, crafts, and more representing the cultures of Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Cuba and Panama. Latin American vendors were selling jewelry, clothing, and many other items related to Hispanic culture. Musical and dance performances run the gamut from the traditional to the contemporary. And children and adults could learn about the many Latin American cultures first-hand through educational and interactive activities.

Cincinnati's top Salsa bands Tropicos, Son del Caribe, and Salsa Caliente performed there as did several dance groups, such as Colombia Viva!, Danza Contigo Peru, Que Lindo Es Panama, and La Troupa Tanguera.
