KELLY – Salsa on 1

Salsa instructor Kelly Atwood.

Salsa instructor Kelly Atwood.

Kelly Atwood started building her dance foundation through many years of competitive gymnastics. At the start of High School, Kelly decided to switch to a performance gymnastics group where she learned to choreograph individual and group routines. She also became a cheerleader and participated and helped choreograph in the annual musicals. When Kelly went off to college she returned to competitive gymnastics and became the team captain and choreographer. It was that summer when Kelly went to Mexico to study Spanish that she learned the basics of Salsa. When she returned she continued to practice the basics and took a social dance class. However, it was not until four years later when she returned to Mexico that she was able to add to her dance vocabulary, adding cumbia, bachata, and merengue to the mix. When she returned to the States, she knew it was time to actually learn what the different moves were and how to do them. She joined the AU Salsa Club and then got trained by Silvia to become a salsa dance instructor. Kelly has also taken Tango lessons, which has expanded her knowledge of the different moods of Latin dance. She is now a part of Silvia’s performance group and an instructor at the Salsa With Silvia dance studio. Her love for Latin music and culture has culminated into the pure enjoyment of all the Latin dances, especially Salsa.
