Our Teams Philosophy:
As the most highly trained and diversely skilled group of professionals (with a combined experience level of over 30 years) our SalsaSoulseros Instructional team strives in assisting dedicated and respectful individuals in their quest of social connections through Latin Dance. We understand that all individuals learn differently via auditory, visual and kinesthetic modalities, hence our team focuses on being patient with those who struggle with learning.Humble individuals understanding that titles, status and perceptions all need to be put one hold at times in order to fully develop as a human being, seem to be the best students in the various courses we conduct. Generally those with large egos and know-it-all attitudes are always weeded out by our team. So, if you truly want to learn how to dance, have some honest fun and meet some genuine people along the way, then take that first step with SalsaSoulseros!
SalsaSoulseros evolved over the past 15 years into one of the most powerful Instructional Teams in the Southwest. Founded by Jason H. and Mr. Bruce back in 2000, the concept of such a team actually started in 1995 with the performance group “Latinos Unidos” that Bruce formed on the campus of the University of Arizona (UA) when he was a student. Around 1996 Mr. Bruce, Geraldo A. and Jessica Z. then started a social dance group called “Ritmos Latinos” at the UA. In 2000 Jason and Bruce wanted to expand this great venue of social connection off campus and created the Instructional group “SalsaSoulseros” with the help of Ms. Jet. Our team strives to unite all good people…so much so that over these many years, 20 plus couples have met in our classes…some have taken the next step, married and created the next generation of salsa kids around Tucson!
Master Instructor: “Sexy Summer” joined the group as a student in 2001 and is now a Nationally sought-after Master Instructor plus the 2007 local dance champion. Leaving the competition scene, she now devotes all of her time to teaching Salsa and Bachata. While seen as a very serious and demanding instructor, she truly has love for her dedicated students.
Technical Instructor: “Bruce the comedian” has been teaching since 1995 and is our foundational movement instructor for Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Kizomba and Zouk. Also serving as our Chief Instructor, Bruce conducts 4 dance courses at the UA. Having taught classes throughout the nation… and the world, like spots in: London, Ecuador, Colombia and Mongolia, he bestows his knowledge of human dynamics thru his classes at the UA. Teaching sensuality and soulful connection, his technical expertise helps shy students open up to their true potential. While he may initially be seen as serious and militant, his dedicated students are exposed over time to his comical, goofy and fun-loving ways.
Technical Assistant: “La Femme” a secret agent from overseas is on loan to us, and can occasionally be seen assisting at certain classes. You may be dancing with 007 and not even know it!
Assistant Instructor: “Axel the energizer” has been dancing since 2006. He provides his high energy as he helps you with your Salsa and Bachata moves. Axel is the lead at ITE.
Kids Instructor: “Ms. Jett” a busy mom and architect finds the time to do some contract work for local schools seeking kids salsa instruction.
Kizomba teacher: “Sir Nicholas” dancing since 2012 is a busy engineer and lead Kizombero at our workshops.
The Boss: “El Jefe Señor Jason” although now a big-shot lawyer el Jefe calls the shots from afar and keeps the team in line.
