"This is why I teach dance. Not because I expect you to major in dance. Not because I expect you to dace all your life. Not so you can relax and have fun. But so you will be human. So you will recognize beauty. So you will be sensitive. So you will be closer to an infinite world. So you will have something to Clint to. So you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good… in short, more life! Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?"

Proud to introduce you this diverse and talented dance family we have in DMV. How lucky are we to have so many talents in Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia contributing their knowledge and passion to us? Thrilled to share with you this new series DJ-Parker Cocolo and I worked on with our renowned salsa, bachata, kizomba female instructors in DMV. There are some other teachers who would love to join us for the shoot unfortunately couldn't because of schedule. But our vision is the same - we want to showcase how dance is life, is unity, is love for us. Especially as we are celebrating the women this year at the DC Salsa & Bachata Dance Festival (DCSB Fest), these ladies show their strength and beautify in such a powerful way! More excitingly, they are collaborating together and going to debut a brand new performance at the #DCSBF2017, WOW! To have these teachers from 3 different states coming together, it's going to be EPIC!!! I can't wait!!!
