Hello, my name is Juan TaTo Paredes and I'm the owner of ToSalsa based in the Tampa bay area. My passion is to build, coach, cultivate, and develop new dancers and together achieve both their short term and long terms goals.
I started my journey in the dance world in 2001 and haven't stoped since! From learning and teaching different styles of Salsa, also Cha-Cha, Mambo, and Bachata, I've been blessed to played a part in bringing the NY style Salsa/Mambo to the Tampa area.
I've had the honored to teach and performed all over the United States and a number of countries including: Canada, Panama, Aruba, Curacao, Mexico, and Japan. In 2007 I opened my first dance school Latin Groove Dance Company and then opened TaToSalsa in 2014.

I have been taking lessons for a year and I love it. Tato, May and all of the amazing instructors have such passion for dancing and make every lesson challenging and fly by. By the time the hour lesson is over I never want to leave. They make you feel welcomed and ensure you are included in the learning process.
An awesome place to feel the confort and patience of dancing with great people 💃💃💃
