June 5, 1999
The producers of the La Rumba at No. Moore. Her name is Daniela.
Every Saturday after 9:30 the bar No. Moore, located at 234 west Broadway
(@ White Street), is transformed into a salsa venue by Dannis Productions the producers
of La Rumba. There is usually a dance class between 8:30 and 9:30 PM at the onset of
the evening that shows novices and the curious how to dance salsa "on-one". Various
instructors, including Daniela herself, teach this class on different Saturdays.
The cost of admission is $10. You can pick-up a card for reduced fare for the
following Saturday at the door. Dannis Productions also does La Rumba at La Belle
Epoque on Wednesdays. For info hit the La Rumba web site.
The event takes place in the basement of No. Moore. The room is large, with a
balcony with tables and chairs around two sides of the room, and a set of stairs
leading down to the bar, dance floor, and stage. The stage is a razed portion of
the floor at the end opposite end of the bar. The dance floor is in between the bar
and the stage. The place is usually packed with dancers and people socializing.
The wait at the bar is long.
There is a live band that plays two sets; the last one usually ending around 1:30 AM.
the night that we photographed the Soneros de Oriente were playing. They play authentic Son Cubano. Son has a rhythm to it that just won't leave you alone - there no way you can not dance. Everybody gets into the action and moves to the music.
