This article theorizes pan-latinidad in action and the classed, racialized codes of femininity that emerge in Los Angeles salsa clubs. Through choreography-based ethnographic analyses, the author reflects on the conditions and possibilities of salsera homosociality-not on the dance floor, but in decentralized spaces such as the bar, the bathroom and cyberspace.
