These dances are the product of African Dance and European influence born in the contexts of slavery and beyond.  They belong to agrarian culture that celebrates the fertility of the body (creating a family based labor force) and the productivity of the land (providing the soil and terrain of all sustainance).

We teach authentic Latin dance from the streets (using original name and form) of:   

  • Cuba,
  • Puerto Rico,
  • Colombia,
  • the Domincan Repubic,
  • Brazil,
  • South America and the Caribbean.


These are just some of the dances we teach and where there were born.  We don't use the name "salsa" because historically that is not the name given to any single dance but is the name given in the 60's and 70's in New York to the collection of dance and music generally from all of the Latin American world.
