"Xibicion" Santo Rico ("Xibicion")
is a diverse group of semi-professional performers comprised
of students that have successfully completed Santo Rico's
fundamental curriculum of classes, and who are interested
in pursuing dancing as a professional hobby.
The "Xibicion" concept came
to be in 1998, when the organization's President, Thomas
Guerrero, was summoned to work on a project with some
of the students of Forest Hills High School in Queens,
NY. Upon the completion of the project Thomas recruited
some of the students who had trained with him for the
duration of the project to form "Xibicion"
Santo Rico. "Xibicion" meaning "exhibition",
was named to serve this very purpose, to exhibit and
promote Santo Rico Dance School's very formidable reputation
as one of the most influential schools in the art of
Latin dance in the City of New York, through a group
of well-trained students who exeeded it's learning expectations.
Xibicion performs at most of our local gigs throughout
the city and sometimes serves as an opening act for
our professional team, "Santo Rico Dance Company."
Xibicion has performed at many local
lounges and night clubs such as China Club, Cherry Red
Night Club and Cache Night Club. In addition, they have
also performed at several Salsa congresses like the
Montreal Salsa Congress in 2002 and again at the New
York Salsa Congress in 2004, where they performed their
highly regarded choreography, "Players Club".
Xibicion has also performed in other cities such as
Boston and Springfield, Mass. Xibicion currently caters
to corporate, private and scholastic functions and are
available to be hired for such occasions. The are also
available to teach, where as part of the entertainment
they hold a small workshop to interact with guests or
potential students (or "Xibicionistas") as
a form of introducing their art of dancing Salsa/Mambo.
Xibicion is a fun, friendly bunch who,
like you, started at a beginner's level of dancing with
no prior dance training. So if you're interested in
performing, we challenge you to see what flavor you
have. If you are interested in booking Xibicion as part
of your special event, or require more information about
