Jorday Rivera's passion for hip-hop and Latin dance infuses her classes with rhythmic energy during each meeting at her namesake studio. Jorday's interest in dance began at a young age when her parents took her to the bustling streets of Broadway to watch colorful stage productions and the spontaneous musical numbers that would take place during each rainstorm. By the time she reached adulthood, Jorday had garnered extensive experience in mambo, salsa, cha-cha, and hip-hop disciplines and had danced side by side with the likes of Eddie Torres and Mario Diaz. This accumulation of hip-swiveling savvy eventually led Jorday to cultivate a love of teaching, finally opening her own dance studio in 1997. Today, the studio houses a variety of dance classes, from modern and hip-hop to belly dancing and Latin, led by a cadre of instructors trained in a panoply of styles.

Todd Chen, director of Rise Dance Company, stepped into salsa serendipitously: after a disastrous party that found him standing at the sidelines as more experienced dancers twirled his date around the room, he began to apply his hip-hop experience to Latin beats. Instead of hoarding his newfound sultriness, Chen recruited a team of seasoned instructors, who break each move into simple steps that are easy to learn and practice. The company's dynamic group Zumba workouts pair Latin-inspired dance steps with vibrant world music. As with training a parrot to rap, both Zumba and traditional salsa classes revolve around repetition to build up a repertoire of steps that translate to dance floors everywhere, helping students internalize the moves as they melt stress and calories.
