Razz M' Tazz Dance Company

Is a breath of fresh air in the traditional Latin style of dancing. They successfully combine the best of Palladium-era Mambo and modern-day Salsa with American Jazz, while keeping the flavor of Afro-Cuban rhythms….

Fourteen years ago, Angel and Addie Rodriguez began the difficult task of raising this baby. It was with hard work, determination, pride, and lots of love that Razz M' Tazz beat all odds to become New York's best Latin Dance Company.

Angel and Addie have introduced their unique style of Latin dance to over five thousand students and have developed numerous dance teams. They currently have Mambo/Salsa workshops throughout the Tri-state area. They have additionally inspired many successful workshops in Europe which are based on the Razz M' Tazz system. At these workshops they offer dance classes for everyone, from beginner to professional, for children who've just learned to walk to senior citizens that have walked and seen the world.
