Hawaii Salsa 101
Directors Emily Hodges and Stefan Kant both discovered salsa while attending college. They learned the art of salsa at several renowned New York dance schools, including Santo Rico Dance School, before both becoming teachers at Santo Rico. They have performed nationally and internationally, and now showcase their skills at Hawaii Salsa 101. Students with a desire to move effortlessly to the beat of the music or waves crashing onto a surfer's head can learn basic and advanced dance skills in a group or private setting. Social events on Thursday and Friday nights allows students to show off their newly acquired mambo, salsa, cha-cha, merengue, and bachata moves.
