Meet our Salsa Dance Instructor Edward Trueheart
My name is Edward Trueheart and I’ve been a YMCA member for nearly 13 years. About 10 years ago I took my first salsa dance lesson. I’ve been dancing every since.
The technical and timing components of dancing became challenging to me. Throughout the years, I’ve had the pleasure of being professionally trained from various instructors from CT to NY. I’m currently working on my 5th style of dance called “kizomba”.
About 4 years ago I decided to share my passion and dancing experiences with others. I began teaching the basic concepts of salsa on1, salsa on2, infused bachata (modern + Dominican) merengue/cha- cha styles.
Dancing is a great physical, social, emotional activity that can relieve a ton of stress. I promise this journey will be very fun and challenging. I’ll be there to help guide you every dance step along the way so let’s dance!
