El Espiritu de la Salsa – Documentary following people from all over New York City – including an E.R. doctor from Battery Park, a construction contractor from Queens, an equities trader from Wall Street, a policeman from Midtown Manhattan and a chronic fatigue sufferer from Washington Heights – as they come together at Spanish Harlem’s Santo Rico Dance School to let loose, dance and connect while learning the rich art of salsa. Under the tutelage of Tomas Guerrero, they have just six weeks to rehearse for a public performance.
Directors: Jon Alpert, Francisco Bello, Matthew O’Neill and Timothy Sternberg
