New York’s Palladium Ballroom is commonly revered as the birthplace of modern Latin dancing. Known as “the home of the mambo,” the Palladium was New York’s most popular venue for Latin dance music from 1947 to 1966. It featured live Latin music four nights a week, frequently played by “The Big Three” orchestras: Machito and hisAfrocubans, Tito Puente, and Tito Rodríguez. Located near prominent nightclubs and theaters at 53rd St. and Broadway, the Palladium was significant for bringing Latin music to midtown Manhattan and for the racial and ethnic integration it engendered. Puerto Rican, Cuban, Italian, African-American, Irish, and Jewish patrons of all classes filled its dance floors and rubbed elbows with celebrities, especially on Wednesday nights when “Killer Joe” Piro hosted the popular mambo contest and professional show. The weekly show launched the careers of many dance teams who then performed in Catskill and Miami Beach resorts, and worked as opening acts with touring musicians. Mambo was the favorite dance of Palladium regulars, but other dances experienced surges of popularity, including the cha-cha (1954) and pachanga (1961).
We, at “The Montreal palladium” would like to give tribute to this place that started this wonderfully infectious love of music and dancing and in which quickly traveled the globe and made the world, the largest dance floor.
No matter where you are from, no matter what your background is, no matter what your socioeconomic status is, everyone can dance and be part of this community.
Latin music has gone through lots of fusions and styles over the years combining, jazz, funk, rhythm and blues, rock, pop, traditional music and modern yet shows no signs of ever stopping. Why? Because it simply feels good!
The Montreal Palladium would like to invite you for some latin dancing. Bienvenido.
I am really enjoying taking dance classes in Latin Groove Dance and Fitness school! Special vibes and energy in every class. The instructors are wonderful and you feel that they really like what they are doing. Jesus is my favorite instructor, he explains super well and shows steps until you understand. And it is so much fun on his lessons…you just don’t want to leave. I have a very pleasant experience at this school!

Latin groove is one of best classes in Montreal. The classes are divided into different levels due to which a beginner or an advanced dancer can have fun and learn to their full potential. Right from the owner- Sandra to all staff members are very kind and welcoming. They always do their best to help out the students with their inquiries and concerns. The instructors are amazing, patient, kind and care about your growth as a dancer. I would totally recommend this school to all dance lovers 🙂

Great school for getting initiated to social dancing. I've been taking classes for the past 4 months now and I've improved so much on my bachata and salsa dancing skills! Every teachers have their own style, so there is much to learn by going to as many classes as I can. They also have unlimited classes packages which we can use to try out as many dance styles as we want (they also have kizomba). Coming from no dance background, I can assure you will progress very quickly, because they want to push us to become great dancers!

I’m taking bachata classes with Jesus, and it’s been an amazing experience. Jesus is a great instructor, he explains well, gives attention and is a lot of fun! I highly recommend this school if you want to learn Latin dancing. They have a great dances selection and convenient schedule. Everyone at the school is nice and pleasant. All teachers there are great, but Jesus is the best (imho)!

Best thing ever. I am able to lead my partner in just 2 weeks in Kizomba. Every instructor have their own style and you can join them as well. It makes it fun and unique rather than repeating same thing. I will definitely finish every level and frequent often.

I began taking salsa and bachata lessons at Latin Groove about three weeks ago. If you are hesitating, I say go for it! Franklin and Jesus are great teachers. If you make a mistake, they don't make you feel embarrassed at all. They give constructive advice and I have learned a lot in only a few sessions. My friend and I look forward to each class.
