Rocco makes learning salsa easy and enjoyable. Thanks to his emphasis on simple basics and building on what you already know. I find it very easy to learn this way.

From TSDF - Dancing is about comfort. That's it! Our main goal is to make it easy and comfortable for you. So getting through the salsa dance patterns you learn is easy and enjoyable. It's all about having fun!

Who is The Salsa Dance Floor?


We teach using a proprietary method called Sistema. It's based on four key principles. We teach these starting in the beginning, in personalized classes called Intro classes. This continues once you move into a group class.

Key principle 1 - Personal learning curve.
In the first 3 hours of learning, there can be a 15:1 difference in learning speed between any two people. That's very common and reasonable. You're learning a new way to move and it's imperative that you learn it at your own speed. This can't happen in a group setting. This is one of the main reasons we start everyone off in the beginning with their own personalized Intro classes.

Key principle 2 - Tension control.
Dancing well has to do with tension control. Your own that is, not your partner's. This can only be learned one on one with an instructor. This is also why we start everyone on their own in our Intro classes.

Key principle 3 - Simple patterns.
Salsa is danced as random patterns strung together. We teach short patterns, so you don't need to memorize complicated patterns or what feels like choreographies. We teach salsa, the way you dance it on a dance floor.

Key principle 4 - Rhythm.
About 20% of the population think that they are rhythmically challenged. Not so. Rhythm is contagious. If you're not getting it, it's because your are tense or most likely you are trying to hold rhythm in more than one place at a time in your body. This is easily fixed with one on one instruction. This is looked after in our Intro classes.

The way to start is by booking your first Intro class.
