Power. Pride, Perfection

Coronavirus Covid-19 Information

Students and Supporters!

It is with sadness and regret that we have to postpone our dance program until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We continued with our classes for as long as we could, but day by day it’s apparent that this situation is getting worse; thus the need for proper precaution for the sake of everyone’s safety.

We will continue to pray for the safety of our planet during these adverse times, especially for those directly affected by this.

We will keep everyone posted of any changes, and when classes will be resuming. We look forward to continuing with the program sooner than later.

In the meantime, at this moment, I will be available for privates. Please contact me directly for availability, and info on our current private specials.

You may also take our classes via our online studio,

Stay safe, strong and faithful. God bless!


Learn how to dance Salsa in 8 weeks!

Our cumulative classes will take you from the street to the dance floor in just 8 weeks.

No partner? No problem!

Learn from world renowned instructor Tomas Guerrero




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.


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 is 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 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.


Tomas 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. Welcome to Santo Rico Florida!
