Last year, producer Edwin and his wife Erika, known as “The Riveras,” were featured in Fania’s We Love To See You Dance salsa instructional series which is now available to watch. The selected top-level dancers represent countries from the United States, Italy, Colombia, Spain, Japan, among many others. The two to five-minute episodes premiere every other Friday, starting April 1 on the Fania Presents: We Love To See You Dance YouTube channel. There will be a total of 15 episodes.

Fania Presents We Love To See You Dance is a dance focused channel created by legendary label Fania Records. Highly influential, both musically and culturally, Fania was founded in 1964, and by the 1970s, the iconic label had spread the sound of salsa music from the clubs of New York City to the rest of the world and became a revered global brand in the process. Salsa music and dance go hand in hand, therefore the We Love To See You Dance channel was created to showcase dance tutorials, competitions, performances and more. The channel is the perfect place to find, learn about, and enjoy both traditional and current Latin dance styles.
