Dance Academy of Salsa
Instructor Michael Angelo Mendez has some advice for beginners: “Have patience, focus, and dedication. You are learning how to speak a new language. The language of dance.”
After years of training, this is a language in which Michael is now fluent. He began dancing as a child in Chicago, and eventually studied ballet, modern, and African dance at Columbia College. At Dance Academy of Salsa in Dallas, he leads private and group lessons to help share his dance expertise with interested students. He specializes in a variety of styles, including salsa, bachata, and cha-cha.
