Regarded as one of the best young choreographers in Cuba, Roclan Gonzalez Chavez brings his hot new show, “Kings of Salsa,” to two Mason venues this fall.

Highlighting the very best of Havana’s cool street salsa and hip-hop scene, “Kings of Salsa” seamlessly unites Afro-Caribbean moves, contemporary dance and such classic Latin dances as the mambo, rumba and cha-cha-cha.

With the dazzling nine-piece brass band Cuba Ashire providing stirring Latin rhythms and brass arrangements, “Kings of Salsa” offers a glimpse of hip, contemporary Cuba.

“Kings of Salsa” appears at Mason’s Center for the Arts in Fairfax on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 8 p.m., and at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on Sunday, Oct. 2, at 4 p.m.
