SALSA AT CALTECH
"Sergio and Salud have been teaching, performing, and choreographing Salsa as a team since 2000. Their training background includes Salsa, Latin Balloom, Argentine Tango, and Ballet. In early 2005 they were Semi-Finalists at the 10th Annual Mayan Salsa World Competition in the Professional Division.
Their authentic Salsa style was influenced by what is often referred to as “L.A. Style” Salsa. This exciting and sensual style of Salsa is composed of flashy moves, multiple spins, and showy footwork that make heads turn. Sergio and Salud's approach to teaching stresses the social aspects of Salsa; it emphasizes leading and following technique over choreography, which produces a smooth look and feel to partner dancing.
In their classes, Sergio and Salud teach everything from the basic Salsa step to complex patterns and partnering techniques. They have won high praise for their teaching method; it simplifies complicated Salsa patterns into easy to learn movements. This results in making their students’ learning experience a greatly enjoyable one."-- from the Salcita website
