Hi, my name is Maryjane. My world pivots round and round dance. Passion emanates from Latin dancing. It all started with Salsa, my first love some six years ago, when I saw some outdoor dancing and just how much joy was in that space. Gradually, the repertoire has gone on to include Bachata, Cha Cha and Kizomba. Now dabbling in Swing, Blues, Tango to name a few genres. I believe when you dance with someone in partnership, you go on a journey together from start to finish. Simple. C'est La vie!!
I was born in a country where dance is an essential part of our culture. Colombian Salsa is recognized around the world and I am more than happy to share it with all of you. Although I am geologist by profession, dance has been my passion, my happiness and my dream. I have always been conscious that dance lets me achieve the feeling of freedom. Come and enjoy dancing salsa, bachata and merengue with all the team!
