Though my 38 years of experience, musical skills, patience and commitment to excellence, I have earned the reputation as the best Latin Dance Studio in the area. Contrary to popular belief, we are the ONLY legitimately registered Latin dance center in the valley. We have the most amount of performance and and/or appearance awards in the valley! We are not a “one niter” at a bar or any other school in the area.
When I moved to the valley in 1997, there was one place that danced Salsa, The Yacht Club. A lady taught there, and when I walked inside I heard salsa music. I looked at what everyone was doing on the dance floor and they were dancing Cumbia. When I approached the lady instructor and asked her what they were doing, she said “Salsa,” and I responded, “No, that is Cumbia, not salsa.” So, I asked her to dance, immediately she said, “Oh you can dance,” and I said, so can you and she responded, well I am the teacher here, at that time I explained the difference between the two dances. At that time no one else could dance at The Yacht Club besides her and my friend Christobal el Puerto Riqueno.
Since then, I have taught a lot of individuals how to dance. They understand how to keep the beat of the music which is the first step when learning to dance. Others have been taught to dance by dancers without the patients or the musical skill needed to teach someone to listen to music. I have met a few of these dancers throughout the years and they could not keep the beat of the music!
By the way, you can dance Salsa to Cumbia, and Cumbia to Rock and Roll if you want to.
