Warm up your winter with some Salsa dancing and a pair of local Latin music favorites at this year’s Winter Salsa Social.

Presented in conjunction with the local social group Cincinnatísimo, the event will feature the 11-piece ensemble Son del Caribe, a centerpiece of Cincinnati’s Latin music scene for more than a decade and a fixture of the popular Salsa on the Square series on Fountain Square since its inception in 2008.

“A Salsa Social is an inclusive Latin dance party where everyone is welcome,” explains Gina Stough, one of the three lead vocalists in Son del Caribe. "An invitation to dance is like a mini conversation without the need for words. When we add live music, the energy and chemistry extend to and from the stage.”

Also performing are The Amador Sisters, another Salsa on the Square staple, featuring Dali Amador and Maillelis Martinez playing a diverse mix of Latin sounds drawing heavily on the music of their native Cuba.

8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31. $20; $25 day of show. Woodward Theater, 1404 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, woodwardtheater.com.
