About Ritmo Bello

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

I’ve been involved in the San Diego salsa dance community for more than 12 years. Apart from managing Ritmo Bello , I am also the main Organizer of the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group .

In my free time I teach beginning salsa, merengue, and cha cha cha. I focus on mastering the technique to lead/follow, how to “dance defensively” in a club situation, and understanding salsa rhythm and timing.

If you are interested in private lessons or have an idea for either Ritmo Bello or the Meetup Group please contact me at

Thanks and God Bless,

  1. Hi John,

    I only just read this part. Great job teaching defensive dancing in clubs . . . I think everybody that teaches should include this.

    Hi,
    Many thanks for promoting wheelchair dancing for the disabled community of San Diego. I am a wheelchair user and a student of William Valencia, Certified Ballroom Dance Instructor. Learning the cha cha, rumba and waltz in a wheelchair is a dream come true for me. I am again dancing to music, this time in a wheelchair.
    It’s the greatest exercise and pleasure for the mind and body.

    I am teaching a class and would like to involve a man in a wheelchair. He will be the only disabled person there. I’ve never taught this before. Any ideas on how to make it work/teach?
    Thanks,
    Isabella

    I love the article on the “art of small space salsa dancing.” An additional comment that I would like to add is that the ladies ABSOLUTELY love it when a guy is aware of the ever-changing space he has to work with. I realize that this can be a challenge, but boy is is nice to end a dance without any new bruises and cuts.

    Hi John,

    I’m visiting San Diego next week and was wondering where I can do dancing or take some salsa/chacha classes? I’ve been dancing for a few years already and looking to improve :)

    Any suggestions?
