In Mambo101 Dance Studio’s two brightly painted ballrooms, experienced rug-cutters keep lessons fun and upbeat as they break down the steps of bachata and New York–style salsa. Dancing pairs rotate throughout each class, allowing students to accustom themselves to leading and following with a variety of partners. Salsa sets social shimmying to Latin rhythms; bachata, borrowing from bolero and merengue strains, evolved into a boredom-resistant superdance whose sensual steps incubated in the Dominican Republic. Salsa classes are held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday–Thursday, and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Bachata classes run from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Fridays.

Mambo101 Dance Studio

Mambo101 Dance Studio—founded by Omar Martinez—comprises three separate dance spaces that constantly pulse with the rhythms of salsa, mambo, and other Latin-style dances. Despite ample square footage, instructors only ever host one class at a time in each studio, ensuring that students can focus on the music as they learn the steps. They teach men’s and women’s steps with equal grace, partnering with students of either gender to show them the appropriate moves. Students need not come equipped with a partner either, as they’ll rehearse with the same group of individuals week after week, learning to dance with all their fellow students. Since shimmying, twirling, and sashaying can be sweaty work, the studio has showers where students can pretend it’s raining inside.
