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.
  • Learn at  your own speed when you start, of what you don't know will stay with you.
As simple as salsa is, most people are surprisaed at the learning curve when you first start. So to make it easy, we start everone off on their own in what we call Intro classes. This is to make it easy to learn at your own speed. In the first few classes, the difference in learnig speed can be a 15:1 between any two people. That might make the class for you way to slow or way to fast. Your own speed is the perfect speed when you start.

Key principle 2 - Tension control.
  • Learning to relax and letting go of tension is the key to dancing well
You're probably alot more tense than you think you are. Ans it will show up as soon as you put y our hands on your partner and try to move them or move with them in rhythm with the music. Tension control and calm is by far the biggest key to dancing well and having fun on the dance floor.

Key principle 3 - Simple patterns.
  • Dance with simple patterns that are easy to remember and execute
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 the way you will be dancing salsa at a club or party.

Key principle 4 - Rhythm.
  • Rhythm is contagious
Some people think they are rhythmically challenged. If you're one of those people, it's typically an easy fix. You're doing some small thing that you are unaware of that's messing you up.

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