Salsabor tropical dance class is one of the best things that has happened to me , at first I was a skeptic about going to a dance class because I thought it would be hard or I wouldn't get any good results , but it was the opposite with these classes. The teachers Kevin,Orlando and Tony are very patient and they interact with everybody to make sure that we are learning and comfortable at the same time . The learning environment has enough space , so it is not too packed . Since I have started taking classes here I have improved tremendously and I feel healthier and more relaxed with my body . I would recommend anybody to take theses classes without regret.

When I first came down to Florida from New York City, I knew I wanted to continue my dancing classes. I tried a few schools but could not find my niche. Dancing, for me, is freedom - freedom from the ordinary tasks of life, freedom from thinking too much, freedom of my soul, heart and body. I felt nervous when I first walked into Step N Dance Salsabor Tropical Dance Studio. However, there was an aura of genuine warmth, genuine smiles and some of the loveliest people I have ever met in my life. They are inclusive, and invite you in with open arms. It all starts with the owner, of course, Tony Duarte. He is always smiling and very patient when teaching. He will get you dancing in no time at all! Kevin and Orlando are also wonderful and helpful. In New York City, you may get a hug at any dance school, but here, you get a hug AND a kiss on the cheek. This is a no brainer! Come here to learn to dance.

Love this place!!! Don't know where to start but the one thing my husband and I like the most about this place is that we feel comfortable and secure. All students are on or about the same level since Tony divide the classes by level. The studio atmosphere is relaxing and friendly.
We have fun and learn at the same time. Kevin and Orlando, the instructors, are the best! They have a lot of patience and are very caring.
We have taken private lessons as well with Tony, and we love Tony. His technique is simple and effective.
He has a great and charismatic personality.
We started going because we wanted to learn how to dance but now we go because it is our place to relax and have fun.
