Steve teaches a mix of LA style and Cuban style salsa. Most instructors in Phoenix will focus on one style of salsa (typically ballroom style LA on the "1") to th exclusion of all other styles. It wasn't until I met Steve that I realized that there were MANY different styles of salsa (like Cuban, Puerto Rican, and on the "1" and "2"). In his classes, you will learn how to lead, how to follow, and how to adjust your dance style to whomever you may find yourself dancing with. Its the difference between being stuck in one 'clique' of salsa and being able to dance with anyone you may happen to meet. Also, few other instructors do a decent job teaching latin motion - you'll dance much better once you add the Cuban into your dance style!
