THE HISTORY OF SANTO RICO DANCE COMPANY
The history of Santo Rico begins in 1995 in New York. Half of the dance company’s founding members came from Santo Domingo (Santo) and the other half from Puerto Rico (Rico), hence the name “Santo Rico.” Over the last two decades, under the direction of Tomas Guerrero, Santo Rico Dance Company became one of New York’s premier and longest standing dance companies. They are known as one of the most influential Salsa/Mambo dance organizations in the world, serving as an inspiration and training platform to New York’s most well-known dancers, performers, instructors, directors and dance companies. Santo Rico is known for teaching Salsa/Mambo dancing, musical understanding, and the principles, foundations and essentials of Salsa/Mambo. Santo Rico and its dance members have traveled to over 45 countries, spanning 6 continents and over 40 US cities to teach and perform their unique style of dancing. Santo Rico has performed at world-acclaimed events and venues, such as Madison Square Garden, World Salsa Congress, Orlando Salsa Congress and alongside music-recording artists, such as Tito Puente, Marc Anthony, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Oscar Deleon, Victor Manuelle, Hector Tricoche, Jose Alberto “El Canario,” Raulin Rosendo and Johnny Pacheco. Santo Rico was featured in the HBO documentary, “El Espiritu de la Salsa.” Tomas Guerrero’s latest endeavor has expanded his one-of-a-kind experience, knowledge and wisdom of New York On2 Salsa/Mambo to Central Florida and the surrounding communities. He hopes to impart the same lasting legacy in Florida that Santo Rico created in New York. We look forward to serving all of your dance needs and welcoming you as part of the Santo Rico family.
