Dee started salsa dancing over 10 years ago as a way of keeping fit and became hooked immediately! She began to teach salsa when her Instructor asked her to help out in his classes and discovered that she had found something she really loved doing. Dee set up Salsa-licious in August 2010 and has not looked back! She is never short on passion and positive attitude towards the improvement of her students but keeping the dance floor busy with smiley faces is the biggest satisfaction. “Live Life… Love Salsa”

Pete started Dancing at the same time as Dee and the friendship has grown from there.

Pete began as an absolute beginner. Laughs about buying his first pair of shiny dance shoes and is a huge larger than life character in the group and an absolute Gentleman on and off the Dance Floor.

He has a passion for salsa dancing second to none and has progressed to now dancing at a more competent level and also now assists in the Instruction of the classes with Dee. He even has his own speciality move ‘the Pete wiggle’.

I have brought Dave in to develop our beginners and Improvers on the 3rd Sunday of the month to teach the basics of a different style of Cuban Salsa and a variety of other Latin Rthyms.

He also DJ’s for various other Salsa Events around Essex and has an extensive knowledge of Latin Music and how it fits with the enjoyment of his students as well as maximising the enjoyment of an evening of Latin Dancing.

The history of Salsa

Between 1930 and 1960 musicians from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and South America were coming to New York to perform. They brought their own native rhythms and musical forms with them, but as they listened to each other and played music together, the musical influences mixed, fused and evolved into a number of new dance styles, including salsa, the most vibrant and exciting style of music and dance of the 70s.
