Since 2002 Ritmos Academy’s mission has been to preserve Latin American culture through dance. Ritmos dancers learn both folkloric and modern styles of Latin dance from Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Columbia and Cuba. Ritmos first opened its doors on 344 Chandler in Worcester, MA under the direction of Hilda Ramirez. In 2011, long time student Masielle Paulino volunteered to continue Ritmos’ mission in a new location, 1291 Grafton st. Worcester, MA. Where she shared a space with former Ritmos instructor, Lindiana Flores. As of December 2015 Ritmos relocated to a place of their very own, 70 Webster St. Worcester, MA. Today, the growing Ritmos familia aims to continue the mission, provide quality, affordable dance instruction within the community and expand our dance family. Once a Ritmos dancer, always a Ritmos dancer.
