Meet the Team
Founder / Director / Head Instructor
Raised in Vancouver, Patrick got into Salsa 10 years ago as a means to tackle a life long fear of dancing. Finding the social aspect of the dance appealing, Salsa quickly grew on him and ignited his desire to know and further perfect his craft - not only in Salsa but also other Latin dances such as Cha-Cha, Merengue and Bachata.
Scarlet Sanchez Fuentes
Scarlet's experience, travel and accolades far exceed her youthful age. Before being introduced to Latin dances by her parents at the age of 15 Scarlet already had experience in dances such as Modern, Mexican Folklore, Jazz, Tap and more significantly Cheer, a team in which she Captained and competed with at a National level.
Tanguy's natural passion for dance comes from his Haitian roots where music and dance is central to the culture. Growing up dancing organically to the Caribbean rhythms of his homeland made his transition into Salsa which began in Montreal in 2005, a natural extension.
