The New York Times iPhone Apps for Dancing Article
With a lot of pride and feeling of accomplishment, we would like to announce that our Hot Salsa Apps for the iPhone got featured on the New York Times! This is huge for the whole Salsa community! The New York Times is read by millions around the world and it is the gold standard for trusted reviews and news. We hope that our apps will become even more discoverable and new students get motivated to start learning how to dance Salsa. We will bring new updates to reflect the recommendation made by Mr Bob Tedeschi, the New York Times correspondent. 

Please help us spread the word and the gift of dancing to anyone that you know by posting the link to this article on your Walls. We have worked so hard for over two years and we are even more so motivated to continue improving our work. Thanks everyone

New Salsa App for Salseros and Salseras Salsa Clubs Free

posted Jun 17, 2011, 10:47 AM by Christian Franco   [ updated Jun 28, 2011, 9:25 AM ]

Great news! Our new Salsa Clubs app has been approved by Apple! It is a free app. "It only works in the US" at the moment. International support coming soon on future update. The app will determine your location and pull all Salsa clubs around you... You can learn more about the venue's features like age group, cover charge, lesson offered, free or paid parking, dress code, overall impressions!

Local users have the power to submit more information about any particular club and the app will update itself within 24 hours with the most up to date information. Salsa venues often change, be sure to give them a call if it is your very first time going to ensure they are still offering Latin entertainment. If not, just update us and within 24 hours, they will out of the list =) It's that easy and it just works!

We are going to submit an update pretty soon! The update will include fast map interactions, thumbnails of the place you are going to, facebook integration to let your friends where you are going dancing tonight!!! All FREE, NO ADS, NO annoying Pop-ups reminding you to rate the app, etc etc. Just useful data for salseros and salseras, made by salseros alike! Enjoy =)

As of today, I have 548 Salsa venues on the app from all over the US. If your venue is not listed, just contact us and in 24 hours it will!

How can we improve the apps?

Happy 4th Year Anniversary

Latin Dance Factory turns 4 years old!
We are very blessed to turn 4 years of age! It all started when a friend of mine suggested I started teaching how to dance Salsa here in Houston, Tx. I had several people that were customers at Taco Milagro - a popular dance venue here - ask me where I learned to dance and if I teach. So one day, I took a good look at my house, I called a contractor to replace the carpet with hardwood floors and i put a little ad on a community newsletter about teaching Salsa. On the month of June, 2007, 2 married couples attended and became my very first students. From that day on, several other things in my life changed... 

My first business card was a napkin with my name and phone number. My living room furniture has been living in my garage for the last 3 years (needed room to expand). My website has grown from just a front page to now several pages offering different dancing amenities. I have successfully published the iPhone Apps, and we just released another cool App that you will find very useful (pending approval from Apple) and it will be free for all (US only at the moment).

Thanks to everyone for your support! To Thank you, today only, June 11th, 2011 all apps are just 0.99 cents! Please gift them to your friends, help us spread the word and enjoy learning and dancing. We are going to bring more features soon. . .
