About the West Texas Salseros

The West Texas Salseros’ purpose is to bring a taste of salsa dance (bachata & other Latin dance crazes) to West Texas and the Permian Basin by organizing various local events and most importantly, sharing the joy that can only be experienced through salsa.

The West Texas Salseros was founded in the summer 2009 by local salsa & Latin music aficionados.

Their common vision and passion for Salsa, naturally brought this group together and has kept them together for 7 years so far. Their shared excitement for the dance led them to put each of their talents together and bring the salsa scene alive to the Midland/Odessa area.

WTS started by partnering with local dance studio owners, Ronnie and Ray Reynosa of Love To Dance Studio, to begin teaching Salsa and Bachata classes.

The classes then led to many of their students asking for a place to dance and practice their newly learned moves. This led to several venues opening their doors throughout the years, including popular night club, Graham Central Station and for the last three years with The Reserve at the Double Tree by Hilton.

The group has also been involved with organizing several pre-parties for local Latin concerts in the area, including for well-known bachata super star, Prince Royce.

► In November 2010, West Texas Salseros brought the first Black & White Salsa Party on Nov. 6, 2010 at Graham Central Station featuring Texas Salsa Open & Texas Salsa Classic champions, Carlos Rincones & Jessica Szota of Austin, TX.

► In 2011, the Black & White Party took place once again on Nov. 5, 2011 at Graham Central Station, this time featuring several prominent salseros from all over Texas, including Collective Essence of Austin, TX, Denise and Gabriel Yamal of Houston, TX and Mambo Dallas of Dallas, TX.
