Elliott Genovia fell in love with salsa dancing 12 years ago when he took his first salsa class. He soon became a member of Sacramento's salsa performance team and trained with respected dancers including Salomon Rivera and Ricardo Tellez. Through his education, he developed a cordial, supportive demeanor that helped him to offer dance lessons to aspiring dancers and clumsy police officers to get out of speeding tickets. Elliott opened his own studio, Dancing With Elliott, which eventually emerged from its cocoon to become Genovia Dance in 2010 after he married his dancing partner, Cara, who also teaches at the studio. The two teach both private lessons and group classes to students of all ability levels in the dance styles of salsa, merengue, cha-cha, hustle, and bachata.
