I want to help guide and motivate those to have the ability and strength to keep moving forward in life, and I use the platform of dance to realize this goal since dance has served my life in this way."

Cuban Salsa Basics Salsa Freestyle Salsa is a part of my culture since I’m from Cuba, and coming from a family of salsa musicians, it was inherited to me down from family tradition.

I have taught salsa for many years, and how easy and fun it can be, from kids to adults. Join me on this journey as we explore ourselves through the movement and expression of Salsa.
