2011 Salsa Team Profiles
These are the smiling faces of our very large salsa performance team for 2011, whose members range from seasoned international performers to some who took their first salsa class in 2011.
“If there is something you can’t go a day without thinking about …
you really ought to just embrace it:) What’s that for me? …Dancing!”
“I nearly cried when I found out I had to do a cartwheel. I practiced over and over but couldn’t do it… now I don’t have to!
“I’m having a great time! x”
“Live life hard, live life for today, for tomorrow may never come!
“I’ve never been in a performance class before and I have really warmed to everyone in the team, they are wonderful and friendly.”
“I started salsa because of the woman, but now I am hooked.. I’m a sucker for Latin music
“Before salsa I was soccer mad”
“A huge range of talent and personalities = lots of fun!!!”
“I used to be right into Thai Boxing, but for now dancing is my project. Quite the contrast!
“Team Comment: Nothing gets your mind off work like salsa dancing with such an awesome team.”
“Great spirit and energy in the team! Looking forward to doing (watching) hundreds of cartwheels and back-breaking moves.”
“Doing salsa has helped me balance and bring out another side of myself… Or is it all muscle memory?… As my friend said, ‘bring out the Latin inside of you’.
“Lovely girls, can’t complain ”
“Always keen on learning and improving myself at the same time having a great time!!
“Dancing is a good cardio exercise, technical class, as well as a social tool. Most importantly, it makes you smile!”
“I agree: ‘There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.’ ~Vicki Baum
“I love bachata!”
“I get very excited about the Salsa Con Coco teams. I like the people and see so much potential for great dancers at both social and competition levels.”
“Life without salsa is like a broken pencil….. Pointless.
“Great people, couldn’t ask for better teammates!”
“I really should have been born Latino. It’s a wee obsession I like to keep on the downlow. I love the way of life, food, drink, Spanish, dancing. And people mistake me for Brazilian all the time. Think I’m just gonna go with it…
“Loads of fun.”
“I danced ballet for 7 years as a kid, lived in Mexico for 4 years and got infected by the Latin sounds, can’t stop listening to reggaeton, salsa, merengue, bachata…
“Everyone in the team is so encouraging and positive, it’s a great atmosphere!”
Profiles of other members of the team will be added as their photos come to hand.
