01 Aug BROOKLYNREPORTER: Industry City to make mid-week fun with Salsa Wednesdays
Wednesdays are the new Fridays at Sunset Park.
Musician and producer Willie Villegas, the brains behind the wildly successful Salsa Sundays at Industry City, is bringing the fun to weeknights this summer, starting July 11 with the new Salsa Wednesdays.
Villegas and his team host the events, which include a dancer who teaches salsa as well as live entertainment from popular salsa artists.
“I was approached by Industry City about three years ago to produce a free, outdoor community event for the Sunset Park area and for the true lovers of salsa music,” he said. “We are celebrating our third year and we’ve been quite successful with Sundays, so much so that we’re going to start doing Salsa Wednesdays. We want to get people to come right from work to Industry City to have a great time salsa dancing.”
