Roger’s – Dance History
Started Social Dancing:
1991 Salsa, merengue, cumbia, hip hop
Started Training LE:
I think it was around 2006 I started social salsa dance lessons with Vanesa and LE. Vanesa taught me the meaning of dance and I learned all of my coolest moves from her.
Performances /Competitions: None. Though I have social danced with some professional dancers and some world champions, as my focus has been social dancing, I have not done any major performances or competitions. For me, dance is about having fun and expressing yourself while connecting with your partner. Dancing makes me happy, and I look forward to sharing the joy of social dancing with all students of all levels.
I’m a professional guitarist performing regularly throughout the GTA at bars, festivals, weddings and parties.
Roger R work hours:
I volunteered at LE June 2015 to December 2016 on Tuesday evenings and at most of the LE monthly socials helping with set up, taxi dancing and assisting teaching of the salsa level 1 . This was all volunteer work.
I ‘ve taught private lessons with Monica as listed in the teacher’s log in Vanesa’s office. There was an additional private I taught with a different student at OPLENAC before the start of the group class.
January –March 2017
I’ve assisted teaching salsa levels 1-3 on all Tuesday night group classes from January to present = 12 minus exam night = 11; and at all of the LE monthly socials this year = 3.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
