G2G Salsa was founded by Jesse Ramos in Destin, FL in 2009 and relocated to Chattanooga, TN in 2014. Our mission is to promote and expand the Latin influence in the surrounding areas.
Jesse started dancing Casino Salsa or "Rueda" at the age of 15 under the instruction of Carlos Tellez, founder of Salsa Heatwave studios. He moved to Tallahassee, FL to attend Florida State University where he taught and performed with the Azucar Dance Company. After obtaining his Bachelors in Economics, he moved back to south Florida and began teaching NY on2 at Salsa Heatwave.
Shortly after, Jesse moved to Destin, FL to pursue a job opportunity within his company. While in Destin he founded G2G Salsa, an LA style on1 dance school to expand the local Latin dance scene.
He relocated to Chattanooga with his wife so she could pursue her doctorate degree at The University of Tennessee Chattanooga. He took this as an opportunity to begin teaching in a new area and to share his love for salsa.
