Dance Company


The Masacote Dance Company specializes in performing and teaching Latin Dance, often to live music by the Ritmo Masacote Orchestra. It has featured in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center, and the Berklee Performance Center.

The troupe has toured extensively across five continents, earning an impressive international reputation as ambassadors of Latin dance and music. In 2008, Masacote produced the world’s first scripted Salsa dance theater production, using entirely original music and dance compositions. Masacote’s awards include the 2009 Boston Dance Alliance R&R Fellowship and the 2015 New England Salsa Music Award for lifetime achievement in dance.

What People Say

“From all of us here at BDA, a very big thank you for making the after party such a success….You all did a tremendous job of keeping it simple and fun. So many, many thanks.”

Ruth Birnberg

“Thank you so much for everything you did for the Mambo Mania family concert. It was a pleasure getting to know and working closely with you. Including dance in this family concert really added so much to this show. And I loved that we were able to weave in some showcase dancing along with an opportunity to get the audience up and dancing. It was the perfect icing on the cake for this very special family concert.”
