Salsa - The Show

Did someone say Salsa? Salsa into Spring this September at The Palms, Crown Casino

“Salsa – The Show” will take Melbourne by storm with a night of entertainment featuring the history of Salsa through dance and music that will appeal to the senses! This coming September, complete with a live nine piece band and 14 professional Latin dancers (featuring six world champions), the cast will light up the stage at the iconic cabaret style venue – The Palms Crown Casino. “Salsa – The Show” premieres to bring the audience on an inclusive journey of joy, fire, and sensuality. 

Many have heard the word “Salsa” and know it to be a dance they’ve seen on TV or synonymous with a steamy Latin American dance. However, Salsa is so much more. It’s a movement, a religion, and exemplifies true diversity. ‘Salsa – The Show’, will explain the roots of Salsa and transport the audience deep into the richness of its culture.

“If the global pandemic has shown us anything” said Laura Anderson, Creator and Director, “it’s that life cannot be taken for granted, so why not celebrate and enjoy every day to the fullest?”

“Salsa – The Show” will not only bring to life “what is Salsa”, but will be a breath of oxygen for the Melbourne Latin Dance community. During COVID Melbourne has been home to many Latin Dancers and Musicians, unable to get back to their home countries, with no work, and ineligible for financial support. This is Melbourne’s chance to feel the real meaning of Salsa in a showcase of worldwide talent.

Creator and Director Laura Anderson recognized a common thread – that Salsa is widely misinterpreted. It’s not a dance style, but a music genre and it would be impossible to tell the story of Salsa without live music. The live band in “Salsa – The Show” plays an integral role. Anderson specifically selected Music Producer and Lead Vocalist, Stefania Serna for her depth of knowledge and X factor quality. Stefania brings an intoxicating manner of delivering a historical narrative to inspire and entertain. Round out the production team is Mario Acosta-Cevallos, Lead Choreographer and 10-time World Salsa Champion. Cevallos has created a visual masterpiece that will leave the audience wanting more.

Salsa the show plays for three shows only at The Palms Crown Casino on Saturday, September 3rd and Sunday, September 4th, 2022. Tickets are priced between $91.05 and $101.24 and are available from Ticketmaster.
