Founded and directed by Nelson Flores who is well-known in the salsa community as a dance teacher, the very-creative Latin dance production company, Descarga Latina is New Yorkers’ pride. In 1997, the team began as a small Salsa dance troupe (with many previous members of Santo Rico Dance Company), and then slowly evolved into something much more. Members may perform shows including singing, dancing, acting, and comedy, and they displayed such talents in an off-broadway musical comedy called Latin Madness.The group has performed on many prestigious stages, including with the Fania All Stars at Madison Square Garden in 1999.

He and the team have even given training to great dancers like Super Mario and Maria Palmieri. Known for his smooth style, which continually honors the roots of salsa, Nelson teaches authentic, musical choreography and combinations.
