Welcome to Mambo101 Dance Studio.
Mambo101 Dance Studio is owned and operated by Omar
Martinez. It is one of the leading schools in the tri-state area. We have been
featured twice in the New York Daily News, the New York Post as well
as performing for the UNIVISION morning show and New York Puerto Rican
Day Parade. Our school has had the pleasure of performing for
Conjuncto Imagen, Larry Harlow, Tito Rojas, Hector Tricoche and Tito
Nieves, El Canario, El Gran Combo De Puerto Rico, Gilberto Santa
Rosa, Victor Manuelle, Domingo Quiñones and Tony Vega on the world
Our Studio offers Salsa/Mambo On 2 classes which is also known as “New
York Style Salsa”. The studio is located in the heart of the Fordham
Road shopping district and is easily accessible by public transportation and
What sets us apart from other schools is many schools hold multiple classes sometimes up to THREE classes in one room going on at the same time! We offer 2 separate
studios for your learning experience. One of the studios even has a shower
for those who wish to freshen up after working up a sweat during class.
Mambo101’s staff is fully trained to teach and breakdown Men and Womens
steps for our students. Our instructors will take the time to make sure that
you learn in a comfortable stress free and friendly environment.
No partners are required! All classes are held in a group setting. Each couple
will rotate as each step is taught. We believe this will help you learn
how to lead and follow with multiple partners. During the “partner work” section
of the class, the instructor will also focus on timing and form. All of this
will be happening while you are not only having fun but getting in some cardio
and excercise at the same time.
Although many studio’s offer a per class fee, we do not believe in this
method of teaching. The per class fee method usually brings on an influx of
different people coming in all the time. We start off with a group and an instructor.
These are the same people you will see in each of the classes you take. You
will become comfortable with your fellow students and have the opportunity
to build friendships and practice partners.
Come in and give Mambo101 just 3 months and be surprised at how much you will
learn from of the Hottest schools in the Bronx. Hope to see you at our next
