Carlos K

Carlos Konig is a Chilean-born New Yorker, and one of the foremost Salsa instructors and performers in New York.  He has been happily teaching Salsa / Mambo at Ripley-Grier for over 16 years. Carlos started with RG at the original 72nd street studios. As he steadily made a name for himself as a teacher, performer, and choreographer, he moved his classes to the larger studios at 520 8th avenue, where Ripley Grier designed the lovely 17D studio with salsa in mind: 1000 square feet with "fast" wood floors, state-of-the-art sound, and plenty of air and light.

Carlos offers a full schedule of salsa classes for salseros of all levels, including the most basic beginners. He also hosts a Salsa Social at Ripley-Grier three times per month.

Carlos has performed on stage at Lincoln Center, The Bishkek Opera House in Kyrgyzstan, and at Baila Con Migo in Rome, and has taught in Asia, Europe, and the US.
