Feel the Rhythm As You Spend a Sizzling Day With Luis Salgado and Friends at On Your Feet!
I wake up every morning and thank the universe for the air in my lungs and the wonderful life surrounding me. These two are my everything! LOS AMO!
While my baby eats breakfast and my wife Denisse brews the coffee, I catch up to the world...
...and am greeted by a flurry of empowering comments from my family and friends in Puerto Rico over an article about my work in On Your Feet! What is even more magical is that it was written by the first singer I toured with around the world!
He is already giving me that look, "Papi are you going to work already?" Not even a year-and-a-half, and he already owns us both... but it’s time to get ON MY FEET!
Breakfast of champions? :) Hey, I work hard so I can eat crackers and mantequilla!
My kid doesn't let me go to work without dancing with him first - he actually sharpens up my moves each day!
The hardest part of every morning is leaving this tesoro at home, but I can only feel blessed to leave in him the "do what you LOVE" example!
Time to get to work!
It makes coming into work SOOO MUCH MORE INSPIRING when you have a stage doorman as COOL AS REY!
First adventure of the day - a fun and inspiring interview with Alfonso Díaz, entertainment reporter for NTN24!
For me the present time is a very special one. It's been my life's dream to represent my community on a Broadway stage, and these are the faces surrounding that dream each day. SO PROUD to be a Latino on Broadway. VIVA BROADWAY and La R.Evolucion Latina!
Our Wig & Hair team is working early each day to make the magic happen - those Latino curls come to life when they hit the conga line!
Jesse's work on my suit is never-ending, as I keep losing weight simply by dancing the show each night! Well, that and my other favorite activity which you'll see coming up between shows!
15 minutes? I'LL NEVER BE READY!
Before the show we get choreography clean-up notes from the most humble and fun dance captains I know.
Brett loves his make-up time, so today I invaded his space JUST FOR FUN! Love you Brett.
One of our swings, Karmine, is going on today - and the very sweet Martin Sola is (AS ALWAYS) there to support her. GO SWING NATION, you guys ROCK.
Shannon gets ready to run Stage Right as SM today for the first show... (P.S. YES NINA, STRECH IT!)
Our PSM Thomas, and his very cool tattoos, get ready to call the first show of the day. It's sort of magical the way all the cues happen... on top of the fact that he is STANDING for 2 and half hours.... whatttt?
The pre-show light makes for a mystical atmosphere as we prepare for THE RHYTHM of the opening number...even if the hue does make us look like smurfs... Latino Broadway smurfs at that!
It’s lookin’ like rain... Good thing Lee is here to escort us to the stage for our big "Mi Tierra" moment!
This is our 3rd Broadway show together so technically Nina LaFarga is by now my stage wife... I love dancing with her!
My dear Andréa Burns. It's a DREAM to dance with her every night and to see her go #FULLOUT in the world of MOVEMENT.
