The Dance Performance Company, known for their preservation of the Latin Culture, and highlights the evolution of their skills in their grace, style, and domination of musicality through their choreography, fast footwork and overall technique. 

 Their Consistent growth, and preservation of the Latin dance heritage, blended with street style while maintaining the essence of the NY on 2 Salsa Style and displaying their other dance trainings has earned them the label “Brooklyn’s Finest Dancers”

 The Company has been under the direction of Brooklyn’s Mambo Queen also known as “Magic Feet”, Ms. Arelis Beato for over 15 years.

 Tropical Image Dancers have been featured in some of the most prestigious performing arts venues and events throughout the Latin/Mambo community both in the USA, and abroad.  

 In 2001, they started teaching youth which later on led to the formation of the Non-Profit organization Tropical Image Inc. in which the “Get Kids off the Street” Project (G-KOTS) was created.

 The G-KOTS Project focuses on creating outstanding individuals and dancers by developing a strong link between their social, academic, professional and the artistic communities. We tutor, mentor, create a family like, safe and fun environment where kids want to be and through the art of dance, we ignite their creative thinking and nourish their persona by enabling them to use creativity, confidence and overall growth.

  G-KOTS teaches our youth about the Latin Heritage, and other Cultures, as well as support their Academic, Professional and overall character and future success.  

 Tropical Image Inc. does not receive Funding from Government or City grants, they host an annual fundraiser “ THE BROOKLYN SALSA CONGRESS & DANCE FESTIVAL” to help cover the overhead cost of providing these services to kids/teens in the community for FREE or at low cost.
