Waldo Solano, Business Entrepreneur, coach, performer, instructor, and social media influencer, has a passion for people. He is originally from Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico, and he grew up dancing most Tropical Music, Cumbia, and Salsa in Mexico City. He has been dance instructing for over 20 years and business consulting and coaching for years with dance instructors looking to start or improve their dance companies.
As far as Waldo's dance classes, you will feel the difference as soon as you enter. He has a warm and welcoming manner and is known for being to train anyone that can walk to dance Salsa. His personal favorite saying is, "If you can walk, you can dance." He has yet to meet a person who truly wants to learn to dance that he could not train.
He prides himself on making sure his dance classes are fun and easy to learn. When students come to his class, they leave happier and less stressed than when they entered. His passion is to help enrich lives, physically, mentally, emotionally and socially, through the positive and transformative power of dance.
There are thousands of reasons people start dance classes, from wedding dance instruction, a new hobby, or a way to connect with your partner, improving your social life, physical and emotional health. And once he shows you how much fun salsa dancing can be, he knows you'll want to come back!
He is an expert in teaching in-person dance classes, online dance classes, and helping people dance salsa, bachata, or other Latin Dances.
