DID YOU KNOW…DANCING SALSA BURNS MORE CALORIES THAN RUNNING?! The goal is to have fun as the beat takes you away! Get fit AND learn easy styling and footwork in our dance classes.

Do you want to learn the grace and romance of Tango, the rugged edge of Hip Hop, the smoothness of Lyrical, the fundamentals of Jazz & Ballet, the athleticism of Brazilian Capoiera, the explicit stories expressed in Polynesian & Tahitian dance, the carefree style of Swing, or the sensuality of Salsa? 

“There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.” ~Edwin Denby

Introduction & Teaching Style

Whether you are just starting to dance, or an advanced dancer, my goal is for everyone to have fun as the steps are learned! My students have a fast learning curve as I teach dance sequences that build and progress naturally. Regardless of your experience as a dancer, my hope is that our time spent together be fun and inviting on many levels.

Dance Bio

Trained at University of Oregon in ballet, hip hop, Latin dance, modern and jazz. Following college, I sought more exotic dances in various countries. Learned cultural dances like: Salsa (in MX, Puerto Rico, Peru, Argentina, Chile & Spain), Drum dancing (in Jamaica), Poi (in Guam), Tango (Buenos Aires) and Tahisian hula (in Hawaii). I love and appreciate every type of dance. My biggest dilemma is deciding which dance to focus on!
Recently the Latin dances, especially Salsa have been my focus. I moved to San Diego to work professionally and be near some of the best Latin dancers in the world. Living in S.D. has given me the opportunity to collaborate, work and compete with accomplished dancers and develop new dance choreography, specific to styling.
I continue to seek new experiences that help me become a better student, teacher and performer!

There is a dance community in every town – San Diego has one of the best. I invite everyone to come and experience Salsa dancing in our relaxed and enjoyable classes where beginners and more experienced dancers feel welcomed and encouraged.
