"The first time that I ever saw anyone dance Salsa was when I was 4 years old and I was immediately hooked. Let me share my passion with you and introduce you to the world of Salsa!"
Alicia joined the local team in January 2016. She has had a passion for dance most of her life and is now learning many new styles of dance. "My friend introduced me to salsa in September and I've found it to be my new passion. I am so excited to learn and hope to advance my skills so that one day I can travel with the touring team."

Jess made the local team in 2010, to her great surprise she was soon asked to join the Ladies Team. She has now traveled to both Puerto Rico and New York with Salsa Caliente. While on tour she fell totally in love with the music, the people and the cultures that are intrinsically intertwined with the Salsa World. "These teams and the people that comprise them are a family. They have been there to share the good and the bad. It is a fabulous community in which to learn to express yourself, to be yourself and to dance."
