Mario Justo Gonzalez A.K.A Mario B is the Founder & Director of Salsa Fever On2 Dance Academy. He is a Professional Dancer, Instructor, Choreographer, Actor, MC, and DJ. Born in Hoboken, NJ, his Ethnic Background is Puerto Rican/Cuban.

Following is biographical information found on his website,

With a background as a full time athlete, Mario trained with some of the best Mambo and Salsa dancers in New York, and from being a prodigy student, he rapidly rose to become an up and coming Mambo Legend! “Mario is one of the most humble, loved and well respected dancers in the Mambo scene today!”

Mario become “The Papa” to Abbey Plotkins’ “The Mambo Mamas & The Papa.” After joining The Mambo Mamas & The Papa, he was given the opportunity to perform for what would become an instant hit, LATIN MADNESS, an off-Broadway Dancical/Musical depicting the evolution of Latin dance from past to present.

“With stage experience and help from an acting coach, Mario earned the respect to appear in the movies “Empire” and “Kal-ho-naho”. Mario acted for the NY International Independent Film & Video Festival at Madison Square Garden, which then opened the doors for Mario to perform in two Latin concerts at MSG… the largest stage in the world!”

Among Mario’s stage, television, and performance credits are:

Kal-Ho-Naho, Foreign Film, 2003 – 2004
Latin Madness, Hecksher Theater, New York 2001 – 2002 – 2003
“Empire” The Movie, 2002
Hofstra University Latin Festival, Long Island, 2004
International Independent Film & Video Festival, New York, 2004
Onda Latina, Univision (ch. 41), 2001
Mi Vida, Mi Musica, Mi Tierra, Telemundo (ch. 47), 2001
The Diamante Show, Cable Network, 2001

“In a short amount of time, Mario has come a long way to become a Professional Dancer, Choreographer, Instructor, and Actor. What’s most amazing is that he achieved all of these goals with NO background in dance!”
