Tell us a little about yourself!
I have always enjoyed dancing since I was young, from doing Indian dance in primary school to the hip-hop & breakdance phase in my teens. Went to a few dance classes before to try out different styles and genre of dance. However, I haven't really explored any partner or latin dance before, until a friend told me that they have been doing solo salsa shines dance classes and that we should also try out the partner social dance classes. I found out that there was a whole other universe and subculture of Latin dance and its community. It was truly mind blowing lol
