Hello all, Yes yes, NYC, LA, maybe DC, Chicago, Miami are great cities for salsa dancing in the US. I want to know what other cities one wouldn't expect, have decent scenes. The reason I'm asking is because I am applying to medical school, and am applying widely. Med school probably won't leave me much time to dance, but I would like it to be a source of stress relief as it has been for me the past 5 years. I currently live in Boston and actually like the scene here for different reasons. I come from PR, and Boston has advantages over PR in some ways. Boston has a place to dance every night of the week, with various socials throughout each weekend of the month. The scene is 'small,' so only one venue exists for each night, at most 2 on some odd Saturday. This allows for a concentration of all people who are interested in salsa to meet in only one place. Meanwhile, in PR, on a given Friday night there may be 5 free live events within a 10 mile radius. So the dancing talent gets diluted, resulting in venues with lower levels of dancing than even Boston. I dare say this happens even in NYC, where too many events dilute the overall quality and Boston sometimes can squeak ahead. So. Are there any cities, in the Midwest, South, California, Northeast that would be somewhat comparable to Boston at least? One fun way I thought of testing it out is seeing how many followers the 'de facto' facebook group page for each scene has. Boston's has near 1500 members, NYC 3500, DC 2000, LA 6400 (damn), Chicago 2700. Ok, so PR's page has 63K likes. I will probably end up back in PR.
