New Salsa Rueda Dance Website Educates, Informs and Connects to the Richmond, VA Salsa Community

Dance Therapy Studios has set a new initiative to generate more awareness of the health and social networking benefits of the Salsa Rueda style. The purpose of their new website is to connect the community and serve as a medium for the members. Ashton and Anne-Marie Feliciano will be two of the dance professionals attending the next Virginia Museum of Fine Arts "3rd Thursday" on November 20th.

Ashton Feliciano, a certified professional dance instructor, is the director of Dance Therapy Studios. With his wife Anne-Marie as his partner, they have become known as the "number one" instructors of Salsa Rueda or Rueda de Casino style. This version of the Salsa Dance first became popular in the 1950's in Cuba. The word "Rueda" simply means "wheel" and that is what makes Rueda unique: the dancing is done in the form of a "wheel" or as a group with the "members" moving around the wheel, quickly exchanging partners and performing many complicated dance steps.

Dance Therapy Studios' 2008 fall class season begins Saturday, November 1st. Classes are held at The Dance Space ( located at 6004-A West Broad Street, in Richmond, Virginia. To celebrate the launch of Dance Therapy Studios? new website in November, all new registrations for singles and couples has been discounted by 50% until January 1, 2009 and will receive two informative free guides to the dance scene: "4 Things Everyone Should Know Before Choosing a Dance Studio" and "5 Ways to Get The Most Out of a Dance Lesson."

Dance Therapy Studios promotes this healthy way to build social networks: face to face and actively engaged in a community environment. Salsa dancing provides your body with the physical and mental workout needed to remain vital, all packaged in an enjoyable routine. The Salsa Rueda Dance community in Richmond, Virginia has benefited by the resurging interest in ballroom dancing. Due to higher audience exposure through popular broadcasts such as "Dancing with the Stars."

Unlike many instructors who simply teach the most popular steps in Salsa, Dance Therapy Studios has set a new initiative. Ashton and Anne-Marie teach Salsa Rueda as the foundation for all the various forms of the dance. Although Salsa Rueda is the main area of concentration for Dance Therapy Studios, the class schedule includes Argentine Tango, and the popular ballroom dances such as the Waltz, Cha-cha and Rhumba.

Over the past 10 years Ashton Feliciano has taught nearly one thousand people in Richmond and Hampton Roads, Virginia to dance, some which have become instructors in their own right. With the launch of the new Salsa Rueda website, Dance Therapy Studios seeks to educate others regarding the health benefits of this form of dancing. Both Ashton and Anne-Marie are living examples and consistently promote the therapeutic benefits to prospective students.

Anne-Marie Valente-Feliciano is a Latin Dance instructor and performer whose enthusiasm has taken her around the world to study with top professional instructors. During her dance training in Cuba she experienced the benefits for herself. Now Anne-Marie and Ashton participate in the "3rd Thursday" dance event held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts ( are helping others to discover that dance can be a remedy for many of the modern complaints that are the result of hectic lifestyles. Salsa Rueda along with the other forms of dance, have been proven to relieve damaging physical and mental stress.

Although dancing is often projected solely as a fun form of exercise, today it is more valued than ever before for the social networking it provides. As the development of the new website continues, it will include a community forum, blog and a series of dance competitions in the various forms of Latin dancing. Class, publication and competition information as well as registration can be obtained in person, by phone at 757-358-1105 (local) or 877-371-1804 (toll-free) or online at
