Sabor Asi

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started learning Salsa. It turns out that it’s the most popular partner dance in the World, and an utterly addictive, flavourful obsession. It’s really a no-brainer: full live latin bands, dancing, and beautiful girls who know how to move their bodies. And if you need the business case, I’ve never met such a variety of people in my life in one night. Salsa isn’t just a dance, it is a truly open and friendly community that spans the globe.

After getting a taste for salsa at the University of Victoria Rueda (Cuban Salsa) club, I decided to join Sabor Asi in January, 2011. I’ve always had a love for latin music and now under an amazing teacher, Javier Monsalve, I’m exploring the music in a whole new way. Javier bring’s an amazing energy to his work, making his students and friends smile, laugh, and enjoy the positive side of life.

Since joining, Sabor Asi has performed at the Rose City Salsa Festival (Vancouver, WA), the Courtney Salsa Festival (Courtney, BC), and at various other local events. For more info on Salsa in Victoria, BC and Sabor Asi visit
