Emilly Sanchez grew up in a Puerto-Rican household listening to Salsa and other genres of Latin music. In

the fall of 1996 a friend invited her to go Salsa dancing at a club named “Chelsea’s” located in

Washington, DC. When I walked in I was completely mesmerized. They had a live Salsa band playing,

everyone was dressed to impress, and everyone was dancing. This experience made me very passionate

for Salsa music and dancing.

In 2005 she joined an all-female Salsa Dance Company called Melao and in 2008 joined another all-

female dance company called Joi de Vivre (both groups were based out of Washington, DC). They

performed at numerous Salsa venues throughout the DC/MD/VA area, the Capital Salsa Congress

(Washington, DC), the Boston Salsa Congress (MA), the Miami Salsa Congress, and the Art in Motion

studio (Philadelphia, PA). During that time she also became one of the few Salsa DJs on the scene and

played at venues throughout Richmond, VA and DC/MD/NoVa area. She also had the privilege of

opening up for artists such as Alfredo de la Fe, Oscar D’Leon, and Willie Colon.

Emilly is the event coordinator and DJ for Torrchez Entertainemnt, LLC and has successfully managed the timeline agenda for a host of events.
