“All of my Spanish club students loved Marlon’s Lesson”


Kristin Szarell

Pine Richland High School

Gibsonia, PA

We have invited Marlon to teach our students salsa for many years at South Fayette and the students always love his presentation. He is phenomenal with the kids, making them feel comfortable with his humor and warm personality. He teaches them about so much in so little time and goes far beyond just dance moves. I would recommend Marlon to anyone looking for a great instructor for their students!

My students love Marlon and can't wait for him to come back every semester.  He immediately engages them with great energy and passion, and is able to connect with them at their level.  He has become an invaluable part of my unit on Hispanic music.

Marlon Silva is an inspiring teacher, dancer and friend. For the past two years of working with Marlon, he always has a positive attitude and encouraging spirit. Being involved with dance since I was little, I was excited to learn different forms of dance. Marlon was patiently enthusiastic as he introduced me to the world of salsa dance. Because of his investment in me, I am confident in adding Latin dances to my repertoire of performing abilities.

"Marlon Silva brilliantly introduced this straight-edge ballerina to the joy, freedom and fun of salsa, mambo and bachata; teaching through simple technique and tradition.  Never would I have believed myself to become a salsa fanatic, let alone teacher & salsa partner! Now I confidently spin on the salsa floor as cross training, and share the great dance form with any eager learners in path. Marlon makes the dance form accessible and fun for all students."
