THE SPIRIT OF SALSA

Documentary

In this invigorating documentary, lonely hearts from all over New York City— from an ER doc and an equities trader to a construction contractor and a cop—meet in Spanish Harlem once a week at Santo Rico Dance School, where they learn the rich art of salsa. Under the great salsa dance teacher Tomas Guerrero's tutelage, they have only six weeks to rehearse for a public performance. Featuring music by Tito Puente, Eddie Santiago, Héctor Lavoe, Norah Jones, and more.
