Salsa Instructor Derrick Brooks in the Musical Remembering the Palladium at the Atlas Theater

He quickly fell in love with music and after mastering a few moves, he was hooked to dancing salsa as much as he could. Early on he became a member of Silvia’s performance group and became a dedicated student of salsa. Derrick has studied under different teachers and has a solid knowledge of the nuances in the different salsa styles typically danced in the DC area including On1, Bachata, Cuban style and On2. He is a regular social dancer and has taught and performed in various venues in the DC area with Silvia’s group. Recently in early 2014, Derrick was a principal salsa dancer in the music and dance production, Remembering the Palladium at the Atlas Theater. And now he is very excited to be teaching private and group bachata and salsa lessons at the Salsa With Silvia studio.
