Our names are Stephany and Jason. We are students from Latin Dance class at TREE Academy.
Our instructor, Bianca Blanco, is very talented and is an expert in Latin Dance. She started dancing at an early age because it became an obsession.
“I was obsessed,” She told us. “I studied, and studied, and studied. I took classes and grew up taking dance classes and then I decided to move out here to study Salsa. I was competing and I have performed for the last 10 years. I want Latin dance to be the most awesome thing that’s happening!”
We were able to lead and teach the class, and we wanted to share what we learned with you!
The dance moves below are a sample of what we have been learning in Latin Dance class so far this year.
