“The Dancer’s Spotlight” is a new section of the TSDS website & newsletter that will feature some of our talented pool of dancers.

We’ll ask them a few questions and get to know them a little better and explore their history and experiences with Latin dancing.

Our first is  kicking-off with Elinor, who comes all the way from Europe (Ikea land specifically!) and finds herself regularly dancing various styles from Bachata, Salsa, WCS, Kizomba, and Samba just to name a few!

The down low:  Elinor J., 27, Sweden

Sydney link:  Arrived in February to do an exchange at the University of Sydney studying Wildlife Health.

How it started: In 2008, I went on a trip to Central America and Cuba with some friends. We met some amazing dancers that inspired me, and the same week that I returned to Sweden, I signed up at a school teaching Latin dance.

Since then, I have met so many nice people and had lots of fun dances!

All-time favourite song: Yo No Se Manana – Luis Enrique

Best new song: Incondicional – Prince Royce

Salsa or Bachata: Bachata J
