David Melendez

David MelendezOur Starlite Forever!

david_melendez_green_border

About Our Founder David Melendez was considered by most an icon of the mambo community. He had been in the scene for over 30 years as a dancer, performer, choreographer and director of several dance teams. He didn’t just preach unity within the mambo world, he truly believed in it.

Through his genuine character he was one of the few credible, honest and humble leaders in the New York Mambo community. He lead by example. What you see is what you got with David Melendez, no agendas, no promotional schemes or exploitations of any kind. He was a veteran, and what we affectionately called an old timer.

In 1992, David opened the doors of his dance school, the Starlite Dance Studio. He decided to dedicate himself to passing on his love of dance to our future generations by teaching children how to dance Salsa. Many people told David that he would never succeed in teaching kids how to dance Salsa. They said it was too difficult for them to comprehend. But of course, he was too bull headed to listen to them and went ahead and taught the kids.

David is credited of teaching thousands of kids at his school. Today some 18 years later, David still has his dance school and it is as popular as ever. Currently there are 5 dance teams that represent the school by going to events and performing. These teams are the Baby Sweethearts, Fuerza Gigante, Jr. Heartbreak Boyz, Heartbreak Boyz, the Sweethearts. Recently, aside from being the pioneer of the NYC Salsa Congress, David had been behind the organization of several events around the world and also recognized as an MC at many international events.

He was a natural entertainer and kept the crowd going with spontaneous interactions with the crowd. On February 8, 2007, David passed away and left his legacy to be continued by the Stars that he had created at his studio which he had established.
