NEW YORK --
Shake off winter's chill on March 9, 2009 at 7:00 p.m., with WINTER HEAT, a special benefit Latin Dance Party at the Rainbow Room in Manhattan, located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, (49th Street Entrance) 65th Floor. Enjoy an evening of hot excitement while dancing to the sounds of the 21-piece Harbor Latin Big Band. The evening includes a special performance by the Harbor Conservatory's Gestures Dance Ensemble, dance demonstration by a Champion dance Team, (to be selected) and a Latin dance lesson by Nydia Ocasio.

The evening includes a cocktail hour with open bar and Hors d'oeuvres followed by a three course dinner at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $200 for the gala evening.
