Eddie Torres also known as “The Mambo King” is a living legend in the Latin dance community. He has trained world-famous salseros like Adolfo Indacochea, Wilton Beltre and Eddie Torres, Jr. Along with June Laberta, Eddie developed what we call New York style salsa where dancers break “on 2”. He danced alongside and collaborated with Tito Puente. Like we said, a living legend.

Here is part 2 of our interview with Eddie at the Chicago Salsa Congress. If you haven’t checked out part 1, do it!

    Just an observation from a grateful viewer Rob.

    Picture centre features a bright lamp and a fidgetting Italian swaying back and forth in an increasingly desperate attempt to appear enthralled.

    Eddie is interesting, but the set-up detracts from his message.

    But thanks for making the effort.
