The NuYorican Co - Always on "2"
The dance company
This is the group of people who, under the instruction and leadership of Conny, create
and perform Latin dance shows. It started out several years ago somewhat as a one-time
thing by some friends who wanted to do a little show for a Sunday afternoon social
dance, but since they have grown and improved all aspects of their shows : choreography,
dress up, style, technique ... Although strictly amateur, they have a very professional
attitude towards dancing and performing. They rehearse regularly and try to bring each
season one or two new dance routines.
During the spring season of 2000, they went on stage with two different shows, performed by seven
couples in total. Check the pictures ! And last
spring, thirteen people in total presented three different dance routines. More pictures right
So if you have a party or other event and you would like a good quality Latin dance show,
consider booking The NuYorican Co. You know how to
The word Nuyorican is a contraction of the names New York
(or nuyork as the Spanish speaking locals pronounce it) and Puerto Rican.
In New York City there is a very large population descending from that island state. To
distinguish themselves from the people on their home island they name themselves Nuyoricans.
These Nuyoricans are largely responsible for the development and international success of Latin
music and they are also the inventors of the New York style of mambo dancing that we love so much.
That's why this name was chosen for Conny's dance company.
This should also give you an indication on how to correctly pronounce Nuyorican : it
rhymes on Puerto Rican, with the accent on the i !
