Mambo Con Cache owner Brian Anthony spreads his fiery brand of salsa up and down the East Coast with studios in South Florida and New York. Set to the pulsating beat of Latin music, his classes keep students swiveling and sliding across the studios' spacious hardwood dance floors. Though Anthony brings his background in hip-hop footwork to the classes he teaches in Hollywood and Coconut Creek, his heart belongs to the salsa music he fell in love with early in his career. Whether popping in for a group class or a more intimate private lesson, students quickly grow confident as they practice the fundamentals of salsa by side-stepping with partners or high-kicking piñatas strewn about the studio.
