Are you going to a wedding and are too shy to dance? Do you want to develop a new skill and expand your social circle?  How about picking up a new hobby and having fun? When you learn to dance salsa, you get to go out; be active; burn calories; learn a new skill; and be social. Too shy? This is the best way to step out of your comfort zone and be part of a friendly, welcoming environment (I started dancing precisely because of this reason). Once you learn how to dance you can forget about your social anxiety at any parties, clubs or weddings.

Hervin Alvarez

Hervin Alvarez

Founder, Choreographer, Instructor and Dancer

Hervin discovered his love for dance when he was 17 years old (some may say that this was 'a bit late' for a dancing career, but frankly, he did not even know that he would pursue this until later on into his college years). In the earlier days, as a shy kid with no dance background (except for the home-learned salsa steps that his grandmother thought him), Hervin had given up on attempting to dance after losing a dance competition during a birthday party, to his younger brother. After receiving his degree from Florida International University (which clearly did not have anything to do with his dance), Hervin decided to take a dive into the dance world, despite the common expectation to pursue a nine-to-five job.

What an amazing salsa instructor! I started group salsa classes with Hervin about 4 months ago as I was looking for a closer studio in the Ft. Lauderdale / Broward area. Not only did I improve tremendously in such a short time period, but I have enjoyed each class to the fullest.

Hervin has proven to be so patient with his students and easy going; he makes the class very engaging and fun, yet manages to teach plenty of patterns to make you feel like you have gotten your money's worth from the class, not to mention confidence on the dance floor.

His beginner classes run Monday, Wednesday 7-8pm, followed by the advanced ones from 8-9pm. He also teaches Saturdays 12-2 pm which gives you plenty of options to attend.

I have previously tried other salsa studios and instructors and none measured up to Hervin's teaching style and knowledge.

Give his classes a try - you will be happy you did.

Hervin is awesome! Take his classes!

The group classes usually have 4-12 people, which is a good size. Classes are about 50 min. There is a beginner class, which is mostly about the basic steps and learning to count with the music. Take this if you have never danced before.

The intermediate class has more complexity and is about turn patterns, styling, and learning to be a better leader or follower.

I appreciate that Hervin teaches both mens' and ladies' styling. Some instructors focus so much on the guys that we ladies feel left out. Not here. It's a great way to learn, and it's fun. And reasonably priced for the quality of of the class.

I wanted to get back to Salsa and found this place online and decided to give it a try. My first impression is great as the place is big, nicely decorated, with big mirrors (stationary and movable ones) that the whole studio is built for dancing. Is better than going to classes in a club as there is too much distraction. Hervin is a marvelous instructor. His attention to detail, well coordinate training steps, and the patient to explain help accelerated my learning tremendously. I took about 8 classes and have now the confident to go out and dance on my own. If you want to get into Salsa, this will be the place to learn it right.
