About Us

“Salsa y Control” originated in 1999 with Johnny and Andres, two brothers who perform amazing duets with unique, intricate salsa footwork combinations. Salsa y Control later expanded to include partner dance performances with Johnny & Felicita. In 2003, the three established what we know today as "Salsa y Control Dance Company." Their drive came from the desire to inspire others to express inner emotion through the art of dance.  

In 2008, Leah and Andres began the process of evolving SyC into what is now the biggest salsa dance company in Boston. SyC has grown to more than 40 dancers, with 5 dance teams, performance projects such as Leah’s Chicas, and countless choreographies that have changed the look of SyC. Last year Leah and Andres’s dream came true when they opened the doors to the Salsa y Control Dance Studio, the only salsa studio in Boston.

SYC performs regularly all over the United States and recently began performing internationally. SYC is available to perform at all kinds of local, national, and international events and venues — including salsa congresses, festivals, latin clubs, colleges, cultural events, weddings, birthday parties, special events and more.
