Rico — Before your class, I was nervous to get out on the dance floor. I was afraid of looking silly and tripping over my own feet! Now I feel confident to show my Salsa moves, thanks to your very effective teaching skills. Latin dancing is fun and exciting. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and skills on the dancee flow!
Rico: I've traveled all over Latin America — Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Columbia . . . but I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO SALSA . . . UNTIL NOW! Thank you. See you at the Century.
Rico, thank you for loosening use up! We want to retake the beginners class again. We promise to practice at home. See you again, Rico! We want to learn more.

The classes are so much fun and I learned a lot in a short time. Rico has a great teaching method. I really enjoyed myself.

My wife Jody and myself had a lot of fun and learned a lot at Rico Bravo's Dance Academy. Rico was very passionate about his dance classes as well as very patient with his students. We progressed, step by step until we were no longer embarrassed to be seen on a Salsa dance floor. I would recommend his classes to anyone interested in learning Salsa dancing. Thanks
