Salsa with Silvia was honored to have had Ballroom Star Jenna Johnson and Olympian Adam Rippon from Dancing With The Stars adorn the Washington, DC studio from April 16-18, 2018. Although, unable to stay for the Studio’s 2-Year Anniversary Celebration, they graciously recorded a video that was played for the event. The video was met with smiles and applaud.
The Stars visited the studio for 3 days to rehearse for the new season of Dancing With The Stars. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity! With this brief video they encouraged our students to take progress one step at a time.
Jenna Johnson is a professional dancer and choreographer on Dancing with the Stars. She first started dancing at the age of 3. She’s trained in ballroom, ballet, jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop. Jenna say’s (in teaming up with a dance partner) “I believe that our main job is to be their mentor regardless if it means to be their friends, their teachers, their inspiration, their emotional support. The most important thing is to be there for them no matter what they’re going through.”
