The seven characteristics that define our essence:

The 2017 show, “La Guarachera”, is a mix of music, talent, and rhythms that honor the wonderful and greatly recognized Celia Cruz, one of the most celebrated “Salsa” figures of all time, and who also taught us her well known saying, “Life is a Celebration”.
The show features three acts:
The first act, features bolero sounds from the Caribbean, the chachacha, the mambo, the “Cuban Son”, and other more contemporary dances such as, bachata and merengue, among others. All acts are presented in the majestic of brightness, the regalia and hairstyles to take us back to the Cuban Cabarets of the past.
The second act takes you on a brilliant journey of the greatest carnaval celebrations around the world, beginning in Venice with a festival that is well known for their colorful display of masks and characters. Followed by the “Carnaval de Barranquilla”, considered part of the cultural heritage of Colombia with dances such as La Puya, Salsa and the Cumbia. In the blink of an eye, the sensuality of Bollywood and the exotic moves of Arabic dances are fused together and magically transformed into Salsa, making it one of the most captivating acts of the performance. The act culminates in Rio de Janeiro, cradle of the biggest and most popular “Carnaval” in the world, with fascinating dances like Samba, Capoeira and Lambada, featuring dazzling female dancers and the traditional folkloric characters wearing the flamboyant costumes of Brazil.
In the third act, rhythmic foot patterns and hip twirls, traditional moves from the dance of Cali, will evoke the memory of The Queen of Salsa, the late Celia Cruz and her elegant stage presence, in a mesmerizing tribute to this internationally renowned performer.
This spectacular performance features more than 80 dancers on stage, 500 wardrobe changes and a live Orchestra, making Ensálsate, a world-class artistic extravaganza that is celebrated by dance enthusiasts from Cali, and around the world.
