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.
