Our Mission

Latin Vintage strives to contribute to the preservation and progression of the musical arts through Latin dance education and performance.


Latin Vintage was created in 2009 by World Renowned performer, choreographer and instructor, Julissa Cruz.  She created the company as a way to bring the art and history of Latin dance and music to the Richmond, VA community. Since its inception, Latin Vintage has trained over 600 students, performers and instructors in Salsa and other forms of partnered dance.

At Latin Vintage,  we pride ourselves on quality instruction. Our goal is to educate each student with the knowledge needed to dance with any type of partner, in any environment they should travel to. We currently offer classes taught in four week progressive sessions with a set syllabus that is easy to learn and follow, as well as drop in classes once you've mastered your basic steps. These classes allow students to learn through repetition and technique until they become fluent in their movement. Private lessons are also available upon request.

Latin Vintage also hosts a number of events tailored to the Richmond Salsa community and surrounding areas, and is always looking for opportunities to venture out in order to bring new projects to life. Contact us for information on classes, events, privates and group workshops.
