Senior Instructor


Scarlet's abilities, experience and accolades far exceed her youthful age. Before being introduced to Latin dances by her parents at the age of 15 in her native Mexico, Scarlet already had experience in dances such as Modern, Mexican Folklore, Jazz, Tap and more significantly Cheer - a squad in which she captained and helped lead to National level competitions.

Within her first year of dancing Salsa Scarlet became an instructor and performer for her father's Salsa dance company, Impulso Latino in Acapulco, Mexico.

By sixteen, Scarlet was performing at International Salsa Congresses and began training with many of Mexico's most renowned Salsa dance companies including, Salsa Caliente, Danzantillando, Rumba Atzeca, Pa'La Rumba, Salsa Na'Ma, as well as a stint abroad with renowned San Francisco Bay Area instructors John and Liz.

More recently, Scarlet competed in the 2010 World Salsa Latin Cup in San Diego in the On 2 division. The 2010 WSLC Competition is regarded as easily the most highly contested Salsa competition ever. Partnered with John Narvaez, she competed against the likes of 5 time World Champions Oliver and Luda (Australia), as well as two-time World Champions Luis and Anya (San Francisco and New York), and countless other World and National Champions.

Incredibly, Scarlet was a last minute replacement and with less than two weeks to prepare for the competition still managed to place 10th out of twenty-four of the world's top couples.

Scarlet's achievements are of no surprise to anyone who knows her. The combination of her technique, playful professionalism and elegant, sexy styling weaves a magnetic force that captivates both the educated and non-educated dancer alike.
