Maria Ramos – New York

In June 2014, Maria Ramos founded D’COR Dance Company to realize her artistic vision of blending Latin, Hip Hop and Contemporary dance. D’COR, “The Core”, boldly expresses the emotional rawness of human relationships through explosive movement. Maria’s choreography incorporates dynamic partnering, dramatic storytelling, and gravity-defying lifts to make impactful statements about the world in which we live.

In June 2016, Maria opened D’COR Studio in East Harlem as a home for Latin Fusion. Classes include both main stream and Latin genres: Salsa, Bachata, WOMANITY (heels class), Hip Hop, Jazz and Contemporary.

Maria has dedicated herself to the Latin dances Mambo and Bachata for the past seven years, but began her dance training in ballet at the age of eight. Her career highlights include performing in New York and internationally with artists such as Kanye West, Ciara, Shakira, P-Diddy and Romeo Santos. Since joining the Latin dance community, Maria has performed and taught all around the world in partnership with Fausto Felix (2014-2017), and as one of the original members of The New York Movement. Maria is highly sought after within the global Latin dance community to perform, teach and judge elite competitions around the world.

Our Story

It started as an idea between friends, bringing a congress to Texas where at the time Texas had no active congress in the entire state. A congress that would showcase Texas Salsa talent, bring awareness of salsa to the community and raise money for scholarships. Together David Melendez and Ruby Rivera worked hard and in January 2004, the Texas Salsa Congress was born.
